Here's how you can build a solution using only Microsoft's tools, no Citrix
is needed:

1) Implement Windows Terminal Services
2) Deploy Microsoft Softgrid application virtualization platform
3) Deploy IE/Opera/Firefox through Softgrid to your terminal services
clients (each application instance works in it's own virtual environment,
like a sandbox)
4) Filter internet users via ISA server based on AD Policies for better

Subject: Sharing internet through Citrix (or better solution) in isolated

Hi list ,

I`m preparing solution for providing internet-access to internal
users . What I`m looking for is a solution that completely isolate
internet usage and internal systems.

I`m thinking about publishing internet through Citrix based solution,
and keep everything restricted on citrix server/sessions.
But I though there must be better solutions ,as using Citrix p.server
for such case have it`s own security risks , some of them hard to
skip ! 

The good point about terminal based solution IMO is keeping user
workstation clean and (almost) isolated, as it will act like a sandbox
for running browser . 
Any comments?

As always , open-source solutions (if any) are more welcome :)

I`l like to hear your personal experiences both as user & administrator
of such service.
