How to limit domain users web access without group policy

Hi All

I need to limit a user accounts access to only be allowed get to to the Intranet page on one of our PC's here.
We can't do this through group policy at the moment because of internal wrangling, we are a satellit office and are on the bottom of the list.

Basically its a domain user account which will only be logging onto one PC and which will only need access to the intranet.

I tried things like Windows Steadystate but this doesnt work on a domain account, I could put in a weird non existent proxy and just disable it to local access but then they are able to go into the internet settings and disable it...

Basically I need to lockit down as much as possible on this one machine but need to do it locally...

All help apreciated..

Ive done this successfully by mucking with the ROUTE command.

Create a .CMD file to :

1. Modify the default gateway to point to some useless place like the loopback address..

2. Create a second route for internal routing to go to the correct default gateway.


This should correctly route to any address beginning with 10.x.x.x. but fail to get outside the local broadcast domain for any other address.

You can then launch the CMD from the login script, registry autorun, scheduled task, or your favorite injection point.

Good luck.
