I support a local organisation which works with school children. The organisation has 15 Vista and Windows 7 desktops, all joined to the same workgroup. All the computers simply connect to a wireless router.
Up until now all the computers ran a single limited account. We use Windows Family Safety to protect the users on the internet and we manually restrict particular social networking sites and various other sites.
We now have a need for users to be able to log into the computers with their own accounts. If we continued to use Windows Family Safety we would need to join each account up to the service, something we would like to avoid as this would be difficult to manage.
Are there any solutions that we can operate centrally that automatically block out known bad sites and also allow us to blacklist sites. Ideally the rules we set should be for each computer, regardless of the account.
Would love to hear your thoughts and ideas? Maybe I'm going about this all wrong and there is a better solution in the form of external hardware. Please advise.
