I have 65 remote locations on broadband with no local IT engineers.

I need a script which can be sent to users to execute on thier local system - the script should
1. automatically enable IE Content Advisor
2. Set admin password for IE Content Advisor
3. Disallow all sites by default
4. Allow list of predefined sites (provided by me)

Would anyone on this network happen to have a solution ?

Thanks in advance for your time and support

You have 65 sites for children?
Some of us are those IT engineers you did not think were necessary to employ any longer. :thumbsup:

If you have real Cisco or other routers on the far end, use that to restrict all and allow your list via ACL. If you have full scale linux routers or those that can run DDWRT, you can use iptables, restrict time of web access, ect...

If you only have the cheezy CPE provided by the DSL/Cable provider, it is still possible to enable an ACL in the upstream if they are all aggregated into the same corporate router port or card.

If you are relying on DSL/Cable CPE, and a standard residential type circuit, break down and get the suits to buy an actual content filter with remote admin.

Treating employees like children may not be the best way to get them to work from home. Any non ie browser bypasses content advisor completely.

If you don't know what an ACL is ask your CEO to hire one of those network engineers back as a consultant.

It is still possible someone here can point you towards a script or a reg hack but unless your restricting all the free proxies, usb keys and admin bypass methods, anyone other than small children or sales droids will crack it in no time.
