Server 2003 how to limit internet use for domain users

Server 2003 how to limit internet use for domain users
1 Solution
You would need software or an appliance or a managed firewall to do internet restrictions. Unless, you wanted to play around with the host file.

You can either do it on a domain level using a firewall or you can do it locally on each computer. One of the webfiltering softwares I like is called K9

Define "limit"?

Here are some technologies you might consider.  We can discuss them further if you like:
1-Proxy server (Microsoft or other), Barracuda/websense/surfcontrol, etc.
2-Group Policy - you can remote access to Internet Explorer entirely
3-Group Policy - you can put out lists of trusted sites, restricted sites, etc.  We have such a Group Policy in place here.
4-Group Policy - you can adjust all security settings in general for downloads, Active-X, etc.
4-Group Policy - I've read about IT departments using the Content Filtering feature to limite access to only approved sites.  But I have not tested this personally.  "Internet Options>Content>Content Advisor>Enable"
