    setup a proxy on one system, prevent direct access to the internet and configure the proxy to disallow other webistes. I guess squid is good for that.

    If you are sure of the sites that students visit then you may enter those sites in the restricted sites list here:
    Internet Explorer -> tools -> Internet Options -> security -> restricted -> sites

    Install 'FreeShield'.

    • parental control software that gives you complete control.
    • It can be as strict or open as you want.
    • popup blocker
    • completely erase your surfing tracks at the touch of a button.

    Freeware Download: FREE SHIELD

    freeshield!!?? I just setup freeshield. Put it on its strictest setting and allowed connection to www.google.com. Then tried to access yahoo.com. It blocked access, ok so far. Then just went to tools>manage addons and disabled freeshield. Restarted IE. End of story. And what can you do about firefox and a miriad other clients. I feel that client based access can easily be circumvented by the user (especially in a school)

    The story is not over yet! Just don't allow Users to enable or disable add-ons! I guess in Dharmpal's case the school kids are not allowed as administrators to log-in to the system.

    And regarding other internet browsers, just don't allow to install it.
