Restricting Terminal Server Users

I have a TS where i want to restrict the internet for just the users. How ever i need them to be able to access this site still

this site  http://sql/enet1/netdfm


How do i do this?  Would Group Policy be the easiest. Server is Windows Server 2003 and its not a DC either.

Thanks in advance

you could force the users to use a false Proxy 127.0.0.1 and then add  http://sql/enet1/netdfm
 as an exception.

I don't believe that this is possible using group policy.  You can deny all Internet access via group policy by providing a fake proxy but then you will not be able to reach the site listed above. You need to purchase a 3rd Party software app that allows you to block all web access and then add the address for the site above in a whitelist to allow access to it.

Example : http://www.spectorsoft.com/ 
Spector Pro  (this app may be a bit overboard but you get the idea)

Now if i do that would it restrict all users in the domain or will it just restrict the to the Terminal Server.

if you apply the gpo to the same container that terminal server is in, than it will apply to only computers that are in this container.

Yeah it doesn't seem to be working,  I think my group policy isn't being applied.  I cant seem to get it to work correctly.

he following GPOs were not applied because they were filtered out
