Default Re: system management

A bit vague....
Is Server 2003 the client you want to block?
Domain or workgroup?
Proxy server in place?
What sort of internet connection?

To effectively block Internet traffic, you'll need a firewall with URL filtering or a firewall and proxy solution. A lot of options Please elaborate more about the role of this Windows Server.

Depending on your setup you could use DNS to do it.

Also if you only want to block it on this server then you can use the HOSTS file.

But as always you need to provide more info for us to help you effectively.
