Hi I'd liike to create a group policy to only allow access to two websites for a handful of terminals/computers.  These users can not have internet acces on these machines except for two sites.  This would have to be a separate gp as to not affect other users.  Any suggestions on how to configure?

Thanks

You can do it using ipsec, a proxy server would be a good solution too

You create an IPSec policy and have two rules. One for blocking and one for permitting. Below you can see that and then below that pic you can see where you define the allowed URLs\IPs.

****By the way that solution came from Darren Mar Elia's gptalk list --- I don't want to take credit but can't find a link to his archives for that question.

Thanks

I just did a test with IPsec and worked perfectly.  Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
