ISA Server 2006 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    In our network, we have given username and passwords to limited users to access internet from their user PCs. But the other workers are stealing those passwords they are aslo accessing the internet. I wanted to block those guys by restricting their IP address, I tried different tricks but not working. Do you have any idea how to restict users by IP address even though if they have password?
    Thank You,

    Baseer.

  • I think the best way to do this (if you don't have ISA already in play) is to shut them down at the router level.  This isn't a Microsoft-centric solution (sorry) but it is pretty easy to do with anything that routes traffic to the outside world.

    But, if you do have ISA in play, you can drop the firewall client on the PCs in question:

  • Baseer,

    If "the other workers are stealing those passwords" then it sounds to me like you've got a bigger problem.  How much authority do you have to go to those other workers' bosses and report this?  If you have stated, official policy defining employee rights with computing resources, then you're within your authority to enforce it in ways that go beyond just using technology to block them.
