Internet Access

My boss would like to disable outside access to the web on a few computers but still be able to have access to Sharepoint. I tried using the content manager but to have each computer configured would require me to enter each site of sharepoint on each computer. Is there a simpler way of doing this? We are using Windows XP, our DNS server is Standard 2008, and our share point is on Standard 2003 R2. I have a Cisco ASA 5505 if this is useful. Thanks Experts!

    Websense is a pretty good program for blocking out internet access.

    Hi Rod,

    From experience the best way to do this would be to assign each computer a static ip address.

    Once you have done this, you can create an access list on your ASA that denies the specific computers access to the internet.

    I assume that your sharepoint is internal, if so you won't have any access issues.

    I hope this helps.

    Remove the default gateway from the computers without external access.
