How to Block Internet Access with GPO in Server 2003

Last Modified: 2012-06-11
I have a windows 2003 domain with AD integrated DNS.

I need to block access to internet to some domain users regardless of the PC that they log onto.
I need to allow them access to at least three specific websites however.
I do not want to deploy a proxy server or make use of a firewall in this solution.

I am open to GPO and or a any other 3rd party tool.

1, How can I configure GPO to effectively implement my requirement, step by step?
2, Is it possible to use GPO to schedule when Internet access may be available to blocked users, like after work hours?
3, Is there any tool that can achieve this requirement?
