    Whitelisting/restricted access for certain users

    A common problem, here and I'm sure everywhere else, is the constant "can you take x of the internet", quickly followed by "can you put x back on".....

    We don't have ISA/websense/smoothwall etc in school, staff go through a squid box which puts in the proxy user/password for our LA ISA and forwards it on. With the forthcoming (hopefully) reduced costs for MS licensing I'm wondering if I got an ISA box installed could I use it to restrict access to certain sites for these troublesome pupils(they are put into a separate OU).

    The only other thing we use is ABTutor, which I don't think can do this.

    you can temporarily stop them running IE with abtutor

    there's multiple possibilities with ISA server.

    You can have a security group in AD attached to a rule that restricts access. then you only need to add or remove pupils from that group.

    We have a group connected to a flash-banned rule for kids who keep trying to play games and another group for no-access at all. In order to make managing this easier, I made a webpage that purely allows adding or removing kids from flash-banned ad group.

    Also in webpages we have that allow teachers themselves! to turn the internet on or off in their room there is a page that enables the teachers to manage access on an individual computer basis.

    here is an old post of mine related to this:
