  7. Hi Paul,
    Thank you for this amazing tutorial. It was very helpful. Now, what if I want restrict internet access to any user log on to a specific computer? should I use the steps under the Computer Configuration?

    Thank you in advance.

    • You can use this “Proxy method” to restrict internet access to any OU that you choose to apply and allow listed sites as shown in this tutorial. It works only by workstations, there’s no GPO to restrict internet access to a specific logged user.
      If you want to allow internet access and just deny some websites, I advise modifying the Windows hosts file and pushing it through a GPO.
