Hi

Say,

We have a 3G router (Hauwei B683) connected to an XP operated PC. We wish to block all http & https traffic from the PC. In the other words to block users from browsing the web/internet. However the PC needs to passthrough a product called Teamviewer - we also cannot block windows update, Do you have any suggestions pls??

Why dont you just setup this PC with a false proxy(127.0.0.1) and then disable changing proxy.

This way everything else will work (i.e. windows updates) but users cannot browse the internet.

Same proxy, but if you want to block internet shouldnt you block installing other software as well(Firefox,Chrome) ??

If the Users are Admins of any sort, none of these settings will work, they will be able to undo them.
