    Blocking an individuals internet...

    What is your method for doing it?

    Until recently we were just moving the user in to a "no internet" folder in AD with a GP applied to it, but i've recently created an ISA rule applied to a group so i can just add a user into the group to block there internet rather than moving people about in AD

    Whats your method?

    I use your prior method. A 'No Internet' OU in the AD which removes the proxy settings and removes shortcuts to the web browser.

    Same here, except instead of removing IE shortcuts we keep them and have the home page set to one asking the indivisual to see the appropriate member of SLT.

    We don't have any long term internet bans, access is given back once the matter has been discussed with the assistant head, or on a second occasion the deputy head.

    We use the group method.

    In fact we have two groups, one for AUP breaches which is strictly controlled, and one that the teachers can add students to (with a bespoke utility) that gets cleared 5 minutes before the end of each lesson.

    "Denied Internet" user group here with Group policy changing the proxy, also set there homepage to an internal "You have been banned from the internet for blah blah" and a link to a copy of the "Student AUP"

    Works well

    I used to do the ou with a duff proxy.
    But I have since got Impero3, and now just add the student to a group that allows just allows google images, wikipedia and the cida dida sites. A result.

    Temporary Bans feature in SmoothWall is what we do, before that we did something similar to you with ISA.

    We don't block it anymore. We used to by creating a GPO with a false proxy and applying it to a specific security group but we gave up banning people from the internet and the network and just brought all "IT Offences" in line with our code of conduct so if they do something wrong it's punished like any other offence.

    A cheap way of providing resticted access - buy a 50 user licence for school guardian - force internet banned students through the proxy for that with only an approved list of sites and a custom block page
