Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can configure Microsoft ISA. It will act as a Fire Wall and /or Proxy. Their you can choose the users that can brows or not.

Also you can by GPO disable IE but any wise user will have a portable FireFox on their USB key. So the best way is with a proxy. Their is a proxy simple of use non Microsoft.

Barracuda is on also net nay with is ContentWatch™ is a good solution. sonic wall have a solution in their router also. those solution are for Small business. big enterprise use Nortel, Cisco, HP and other guys like that

    If I understand your question, first you want to block internet sites If so, check out this website http://www.petri.co.il/block_web_browsing_with_ipsec.htm and this one http://www.petri.co.il/block_internet_but_allow_intranet_with_ipsec.htm It appears that then you are asking about downloading from Microsoft server 2003, which has nothing to do with browsing internet sites. If this is correct, then I recommend using NTFS Permissions to limit what users can do on yuur network server. Please clarify your question and maybe we can give you more detailed instructions. dmw
