If users are accessing it via DNS name (like for HTTP/s or FTP) then simply make a bogus A record and blackhole it...    Easier than messing with routers..

on external router interface create a deny ip access list and on the internal router creat a loopback adapter and point all internal traffic to this address.

this will break communication in both directions.
