I need to restrict internet browsing completely without disabling networking, or blocking port 80
Posted on 2007-11-28
I currently have 2 computers which are used for ambulance dispatch operations, which are locked down using the Microsoft Shared Computer Toolkit. In the "User Restrictions" options, I have the choice of preventing Internet Explorer from connecting to the network.
Unfortunately, when I set that option, it disables connectivity for our dispatch vehicle tracking software. I am assuming that is because our software requires internet explorer, and/or connects through port 80. (Tech support for our dispatch software told us that IE is required for the program to run).
What I need to do is prevent internet website browsing without completely restricting http connections. Prevention of Internet Explorer windows from opening would be ideal.
