Would like to set up a Kiosk workstation.

Hi,
I've been tasked with setting up a non-secure Kiosk workstation that would not go through our Firewall in order for users to access the internet without risk to our network/domain.  The problem is that all connections go through our network switch which then goes to our Firewall.  This system is not on our domain, only a workgroup, but it still gets blocked by our Web Blocker on the firewall.  Is there a way to make this work without having to obtain another  public IP address?  I don't have any available and our cable company said they would have to enter a whole new set to obtain the necessary number of Public IP's.  This would involve many changes on my network.  Any help, direction or suggestions would be much obliged.

Thank you!

Does the Kiosk need access to the internet? If so, perhabs you can set up a virtual network in the switch and create a new route for the kiosk on the router?

We have a few kiosk computers where I work. The computers are all part of our domain but only have Internet access. We use software called SiteKiosk which works great. http://www.sitekiosk.net/en-US/SiteKiosk/Default.aspx
You really can lock down the computer to make it very secure. It creates and uses a local account on the computer. You can download a trial version so it's worth a look at. Also the licenses are very reasonable.

Actually configuring a domain PC with this right now, as we speak. I decided to uninstall it, and use the ADM templates to create a GPO to manage the same settings.....

But as a standalone, the Disk Protection works great.....
