I have a WinXP pc on a Windows network that needs to be accessed by one of our servers but cannot have access to the Internet. What is the best way to accomplish this? (Details please.)

Thanks!

Set that PC to have a static IP address and block that IP on your server or firewall from accessing the Internet.

Or, setup a firewall on the PC to accept/allow communications from ONLY the server's IP address (which I assume is static).
