Does anyone know if there is a way to stop someone using one of my PC's / Laptops accessing any other network or by tethering, than the network I want the machine connected to.


For instance, making the machine only connect to my one chosen network and cannot be disconnected to connect to a mobile phone by tethering to bypass the parental and security controls of the network I want it to use.  :scratchhead:


Many Thanks.

Allow only limited user accounts to use the machine and set a static IP address on your network.  If the user account is an administrative account there is nothing you can do.

That seems to be more of an OS setting/security
