Re: FW: block internet at two workstations

That was a good suggestion, IMO.

If the security is set up properly on the workstations, the users should not have permissions to modify the default gateway or set static routes.

However if, for some reason, you have a proxy server that is on the local network, the user would still be able to point the browser at it and be home free. To solve this, you would set permanant static routes that nullify that kind of access. Again, user privliges will not allow modification of your changes.

Heck, if you don't have local resources that the machines need to access, you could just disable the NIC! Or even remove it!
