    Just wondering as never done it myself nor used them but curious if it would be possible to have 2 pac files

    one pac file where if it is between certain times on the server or client then it wont allow access and would point them to an IIS Server with a blocked page or it would just give them duff proxy settings and then revert back to normal settings after that period of time

    The other pac file just giving them relevant proxy settings.

    Found this site which seems to have a number of different options - have not had time to read it but may be one or two useful things in there hopefully

    Similar to the mac_shinobi solution, you could script the proxy settings for startup, applying one registry patch most of the time and during the specified hours, duff settings. This of course relies upon the little darling logging on between those hours.

    That sounds like a great simple option... I'll look into it (though I'm no expert when it comes to scripting! lol)

    Thanks Ric (thanks to everyone for your suggestions too )

    As per the bottom of the linked page - you can do time ranges / dates ranges etc but not sure if you can force a log off some how so that the pac re applies when the log back in between the 2 time periods

    Is that just for Firefox? :-s We're only using IE here... Not looked fully, saw the title and skimmed the rest.

    That was a full page on how to do pac files with examples and I was just reffering to the end part which refers to the time range but pac files should work on firefox and internet explorer - not sure about safari or other browsers though.

    See How to configure client proxy server settings by using a registry file for how to change the proxy settings with a reg file. My mind has gone blank on the time checking bit you will need it as part of your logon script.

    Don't forget to remove your proxy settings from your GPOs

    I'll get there...

    Thanks all
    Hi,

    If you use a Ranger react task in LANRanger you can get it to block an applicaiotn in a "room" automatically for a period and then relase at a certain time.
