Internet Explorer Question

Postby Minor League Skilz » Thu Sep 15, 2005 10:03 am

I know, I know, I should be using Firefox.

But does anyone know which setting to adjust in IE in order to block all websites but one.

For some background I am setting up a Test PC for my company so anyone off the street can come in and browse the Internet to use our website. I don't need people checking their email or looking at the FBC on my time ( only I can do that! ;-) ) so I want to block the rest.

I think it must have soemthing to do with the trusted sites and restricted sites under the security tab but I am not sure.

Any help would be appreciated. ;-D

not employees ACS....customers....All employees have free reign on the internet. We don't even monitor internet activity or email. You could be looking at porn all day I would never know.

Thanks for the help ACS.

I am connecting to our wireless network which is outside of the firewall, so I can't block sites that way.

We plan to run demos for people who rarely use computers, so the suggestion to hide the address bar and lock the toolbars might work. It is so simple it is genius! ;-D

You need to run a firewall in order to "block all sites except one."

You can block specific sites and content specific sites, but you can just allow one site without a firewall installed or third party security software. Kind of goes against the free reign of internet for all philosophy, even for Microsoft.

I can understand why you want to set this up, and I agree you should be using Firefox (EVERYONE SHOULD BE USING FIREFOX) but there really isn't a quick and easy way to accomplish what you're going for, except if just locking the toolbars works along with hiding the address bar, you've got a totally easy way to do this.

Rock on.
