    SCENARIO: I set-up Internet Connection Sharing to users using a Wireless Internet USB Adapter HUAWEII in a windows xp sp3 machine to distribute internet connection to users connected to an ordinary switch port as thier common link.  I want to block all proxy servers, all proxy applications and unwanted sites (ie. hotspot shield, openvn, etc. etc.) from all the users. What is the best way for me to block and restrict all those from users? I have a huge file lists of unwanted websites and put in that xp machine's host file and it works and restrict those users accessing those specific websites lists that I have included in the host file. But how i can combat and block those users from using proxy servers and applications?

    Note: the set-up is outside a secured network and it's using an open internet connection with dynamic IP.
