Using Steady State for Thin Client? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have some oldish PCs I'd like to reuse as thin clients.

    Do you think I could use Steady State? I want to lock them down so the users boot into IE and go straight to a home web page and nowhere else.

    Would that work or are there better alternatives?
    Thanks

  • Hi Dawks, thanks for the post. I consider you can use Windows SteadyState to restrict the user on the computer and use the following restriction to restrict Internet access:

    User settings - Feature restrictions - Internet Explorer restrictions - Prevent Internet Access

    You can add allowed site under "Web Addresses Allowed". Please also note that this function works under non-proxy environment.

    Hope this helps.
