Restrict IE8 website access for specific AD Accounts

Posted on 2011-05-13

We're running a Windows 2003 SBS AD environment with XP Pro SP3 workstations and IE8.  We are utilizing the Proxy Server feature in our MicroTIK firewall/router.  I have one user workstation that is configured on the firewall to bypass the Proxy Server, so that workstation has unrestricted Internet access.

I have been asked to investigate whether we can create a new AD account and restrict only that account to access specific websites from this same machine that bypasses the Proxy Server.  

Any ideas?

    Accepted Solution

    could create a user policy GPO that applies a fake proxy IP and add your approved sites to the bypass list, then filter the GPO to only apply to that one user
