Q

Can I restrict Internet access through an NT4 server or workstation?

I was wondering if there is a way to restrict Internet access through a Windows NT 4.0 server or workstation. I am running a DHCP network with no static IP addresses. The Internet connection is through an ISDN router, which is currently letting everyone get out. Can you help?
If you don't want to buy any additional software, you can use Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS). A few years back, I wrote a book called NT Network Plumbing that covers this topic pretty well. It's online now, and you can read the chapter about RRAS.

If you're willing to buy software, Microsoft Proxy Server works well with NT4. In the same book, there's information on proxy servers.
