Weird Group Policy Question

I have a client who has a user that uses two different machines. What they want is for that user to have internet access on one machine but not the other. I don't think it is possible, but I may be wrong. Does anyone know of a way to set a policy for this? They use Windows Server 2003.

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

Create a machine policy to force the non-internet PC to use itself as a PROXY.
For example, set the policy to force IE to use 127.0.0.1 as the proxy server address, and it will not be able to get to the internet.

Good luck,
Tom

    That's good if you want noone to use the internet on that machine, but I don't know how to accomplish this for just one user and yet allow that user to access internet on a different machine.

    If there are no applications that need to cross the internet, and you are talking about preventing a machine and not just one user, you could set up the tcp ip properties for a static ip, subnet, and just leave the default gateway blank. Then when it went to look for the internet it will not find a gateway out. This will of course stop all users and applications from hitting the internet on this machine.
