We have a sbs 2008 network.  There are two desktops on the network that we would like to disable access to the internet but keep access to the local network.  How can this be done?  

TIA

Off hand, I would create reservations for those two workstations then set their gateways to blank.  They shouldn't be able to get to the internet if they don't have a route to the internet (which would be provided by the gateway).

The other option would be to set a fake proxy in IE...you could do that via group policy
