Hi Experts,

Is there a way to restrict web site browsing from Citrix? There are a few websites that (internally and externally) users need to get to but anything else should be blocked (facebook, google, etc).  IE is published as an application and there is no Remote Desktop access to the servers.  

Environment is Xenapp 6.5, Server 2008 R2, IE 10.

Thanks,

The best would be to use a proxy server to block unwanted websites.

You can also use the GPO user configuration->windows settings->internet explorer maintenece->security,

However with the above GPO it will be difficult to block occurrences of the website in different domains. For example: you blocked www.google.com. The users will still be able to access www.google.au!!!
