    This is what I am doing (or trying to do)

    I have created a group in Active Directory Users and Computers simply called "No Internet" when teachers ask me to disable a pupils internet access, I make that pupil a member of the "No Internet" group.

    I then have a group policy setting which under User Settings and Internet Explorer Maintance sets the proxy server to a false proxy address so that the internet cannot work. I also have Internet Policy Refresh enabled and set to "even if no changes are made" This Group Policy is set to enforced and only to apply to the "No Internet" group

    If I log onto a workstation as a user who is a member of the No Internet group and do gpresult I can see that the Policy has been applied, but when I try the internet it still works and the proxy servers have not changed from the working ones to the false ones.

    I've never been able to get the Internet Settings to work in group policys, even to set things like the home page etc etc

    What am I doing wrong, or what else do I need to do to make it work (or not work as the case may be!!!)

    Regards,

    Matt
    We've just started using LanView to do this, allows you to add students or computers to the internet blocked group and prevents IE, FireFox etc loading.

    We've also got it set up so that teachers can change access for their room by clicking simple traffic light icons.
