Greetings,

We have a Windows 2008R2 domain controller and are able to block specific sites within DNS, however that blocks sites for all domain users. Is there a way that we can block sites for a specific domain user or group and still allow full access to others?

Thanks

You could edit the host file for that machine.  It wouldn't be idea for a large network though.

Another option would be looked at some proxy software.

Thank you! The host file changes did the trick.
