  • how to control DNS entries on remote laptops

    Every remote laptop user is an admin on their local machine and are using Windows XP. We want to control their access by hard coding their DNS entries to point to our corporate DNS (for monitoring purposes), but since they are admins, they can change DNS entries.

    How can i ensure that remote users continue to use my DNS settings no matter how they login to their laptop? Also, vpn is out of the question because some sites that these guys go to may not allow vpn connections.

    thank you

        A local admin will always be able to make changes.

        The most you can do is possibly make it difficult for these users by applying group policy or local policy (so it applies to every user that logs into the computer) and hide and/or restrict access to these property pages. There is really not much else you can do unless you have the admin access removed.
