    WTH, they don't like free software..... Most schools utilize Open Source in one way or another. It wouldn't make sense to pay for something you can get for free elsewhere.

    Also you have to get it approved?!? by who? Thats insane...

    If the heads are asking for it then let them get it fast tracked.

    People on here won't recommend rubbish software, if that's your worry.

    Can't you set the content advisor/security zone settings via group policy? At least it'd stop you having to visit all the computers.

    Is there currently any web filtering set up on your systems? If there is, and you have access to it, you could just block everything you don't want, or just allow a certain few pages to be viewed. If not, it's looking more and more impossible.

    That's okay until you need to send/receive email.

    If its just for certain users cant you put those users into a specific OU and get that OU to apply no proxy settings so that direct connections should work and if you go out to the internet it wont work because it should be blocked by proxy server ?

    Would have to test that ( if its for those computers in question then just drag those computer objects into that OU instead of the users )

    Just a thought - saw below about pac file ( may be the way to go ) but again this will be proxy settings again so not sure if thats what you wanted

    You could use Wmi script to blackhole the proxy server ip on the targeted stations:

    Use IPSec

    Block Web Browsing but Allow Intranet Traffic with IPSec

    Block Web Browsing with IPSec

    Down at the bottom of the first article there's a link to configuring IPSec using GPO so you can get it on all machines.

    What about a custom pac file on a shared area for each room/group of pc`s done through an appropriate OU for each group, sending any non intranet traffic to a dummy proxy if net access is not needed
