  • To block facebook using sec. policies?

    I have to block access to certain websites such as www.facebook.com. I have windows sever 2003 and XP in my network. One domain, active directory etc....
    I am wondering whether someone could direct me how to do that by using security policies?

    Hi,

    By far not the most elegant solution and I would suggest using an ISA server or equivalent but one option, if you manage your own DNS , would be to create a record with the IP loopback address.
    or add this entry on your hosts file in each computer (Can be scripted): 127.0.0.1 facebook.com

      Best way to do this would be to implement an Internet Gateway device that can do content filtering.

      There are numerous devices out there that can do and your current firewall may have the capabiities to do this.

        if you have no money to spend i suggest www.opendns.com.. you can block them on DNS level.
        However on the long term i also suggest to look at a content filtering system.
