Block all http & https traffic from a windows XP OS PC

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??

Make a rule in the firewall blocking port no 80 and 8443 in it and make users member of a group unable to change rules in firewall simple.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
