Restrict application and internet access to a single workstation
Posted on 2010-11-21
I was hoping for some advice for setting up a single public computer (in a children's orthodontic clinic) with access to one proprietary full-screen application (that requires internet access to one site). The computer is basically dedicated to this application.
The computer is a HP 6000 Pro all-in-one running Windows 7 Pro (on a server 2008 domain).
In the past, I have tried a similar setup on a Dell touchscreen all-in-one PC running Arlington Kiosk Browser but the children were always able to 'sidestep' the in-built security measures. We don't want them exiting the app and opening IE (for example).
There has been a suggestion of additionally restricting access by limiting things by DNS, but this is only a partial solution.
I know that I could script the application to open on login etc and create a restricted user on the domain, but I was hoping for some experienced folks to point me in the right direction.
