HOSTS file, Computer question...
 
Hey ya'll,

I'm trying to make a lab image that basically gives access to ONLY one site in Internet Explorer. I'm thinking of editing the HOSTS file and just pasting some likely suspects of sites that the physical plant people here would go to. Anyone have a better idea?

you could limit access on the router instead of hosts files (which are easy to replace)... if you give access to any proxy sites though, then the entire internet becomes available again (ie google cache, babelfish etc).

port blocking is just as important as ip blocking for restricting access too... though if you're talking about ONLY allowing 3-4 sites, then i doubt they'd be running a ton of p2p on them.

I actually just figured it out. And if anyone wants to know...

Go to proxy, then put in anything you want. Then go to advanced, and under the "Do not use proxy for these addresses." put something like "*.edu" in my case and that way they only have access to .edu sites. It works very well.

problem is anyone with a little computer knowledge can undo that very easily and at will.
