    Internet Blocking Service

    I notice on my LNM server that there is an 'Internet Blocking Service'. I'm guessing this is to do with the facility whereby an entire 'lab' can be prevented from accessing the Internet. Anyone know anything about this? It might be a useful component if it could be isolated.

    Re: Internet Blocking Service

    I've tested the Internet blocking on LNM and it seems to work. It's possible to block and entire room (lab) or individual computers. It takes effect immediately. The only problem that I can see is that it is based on modifying the Default Gateway IP address on the PCs. That's fine, unless you have an on-site proxy server!

    They likely assume you have ISA (which makes most sense to me when it is your gateway).
