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.

You could download and install Untangle.
It is a free appliance that does do content filtering.
