Does anyone know if there is a way to limit a user to use only VPN access for internet using group policies. We dont want remote users using there internet to get out. We have ours restricted which is what we want. We have a mixed Windows 2003\2008 enviroment. The users are on XP. Thanks

    This wouldn't be done thru IE but rather their TCP/IP Properties on the VPN interface.

    Default Gateway on Remote Network
    Properties of TCP/IP -> Advanced button

    Will this limit them to only get internet access through VPN? I dont want them able to get out to the internet at all if they are not logged into VPN. Also would you know if there is a setting in GPO to apply this to multiple machines?

    You can restrict internet access via TCP/IP settings or Windows Firewall. With the Windows Firewall, you should be able to configure the settings via Group Policy. Not so sure about for TCP/IP though.
