I am thinking that a group policy which changes the default gateway to the localhost might do it, assuming a flat network with a single gateway to the Internet
or how about just setting a fictitious proxy server address in Internet explorer ....
You could still access files on the local network, but access is denied to the wide network..
Am I missing something here ??

Subject: ways to block the WWW without blocking the network
I have a teacher who is requesting help with an issue.
He wants students to be able to access network files, but not the web
My filter might do this, if I added authentication for everyone, not something I want to do.
I seem to recall that some of the products like synchroneyes would do this.
Just wondering if anyone is currently using such a solution or has a workable suggestion
I understand that some of you might be thinking 'this is a classroom management issue, not a technology issue' but defining the issue isnt what I am trying to do.
Is it possible to get software that will block internet access for a certain time period without blocking access to the school network?... I will be able to see their screens from my desk but it gets exhausting calling them on it all the time.
