Server 2003 domain website content filtering

Hello,

We have an office with server 2003 and xp workstations on our domain.

I would like to limit the web traffic to three websites:

* our corporate website
* gmail
* and pandora

Are there any inexpensive ways of doing this with Group Policy without additional hardware or software?

We have used Sonicwall content filtering in other offices but this is a small office and they are on a budget.

Any ideas?

You may be able to achieve this through IE security settings which can be applied through GPO however I don't believe it will affect other browsers. You would have to restrict users to not be able to install alternate browsers to completely achieve what you are looking for.
