  • how to block certain websites on ISA Client in XP

    Hello.

    Is there a way to block certain websites on my computer while i am Behind ISA Proxy Server?

    I am not willing to use a third party software to block those websites.

    Do you want to block entire domains or just certain sections/pages within a given domain?

        Actually, no you didn't mention that in your first post.

        If you're in a workgroup then presumably you don't have a DNS server setup?

          So, do YOU have access to log on to the ISA server, or does your cable provider not give you that?

          Because if you can log on to your ISA server, then yes, you can just block websites using ISA - in fact that's a pretty commonly used functionality.

          If you don't have access, you should be able to ask the cable provider to do it.

            Who manages the ISA server -- you or your ISP?

              What if I am in a domain environment ?

              Suppose, I am a domain Client (Server 2003 DC) + ISA 2006 Client. But I am not a Server Adminsitrator.

              Now What can i do to remove certain websites only on client side without informing the Network Administrator.

                  So you want to do this without the permission of your system administrator?

                  First step, speak to your IT staff and get permission to do this.

                  Once you have permission, while you can achieve this at the client level, this takes a huge amount of work (manually adding each subdomain to block to the hosts file of each computer) to implement and maintain. Instead, it could be done using DNS which would be a far more elegant solution.

                  The best way however would be to use ISA to block the sites if you're able to do so.

                    I can't not access the ISA Server and Don't want to tell anything about blocking the websites to the ISA Administrator.

                      Hosts file method does not work with on ISA Client.
                      C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

                      How to do this via DNS ?

                        Via DNS - Google it?

                        Again, I must recommend that you speak to your IT department and get permission before proceeding.

                              I do not like the way this thread has progressed from Post #3. It seems obvious that the OP is wanting help in bypassing a setup by the ISA Administrators. As always, we will NOT assist Members to bypass any security measures setup in their workplace unless they have direct Administrative access to the Server and need guidance with a security implementation.

                              This above quote concerns me greatly. Unless the OP can provide a credible reason why further assistance should be provided, I would be very careful in providing further directions to achieve his goal in collecting his "handsome amount of money".

                              This also goes for members who attempt to get us to provide answers to school projects that they have been given.
