Hi,

Installing a proxy will not allow you to stop a user from installing software!
If you want to do this you will need to install WinNT/2K/XP on your workstations and limit this in their accounts or use "System Policies" on Win98. Also note that if your workstations are older systems, you may end up decreasing their performance using WinNT/2K/XP. Take a look at the Win98 CD, under "\tools\reskit\netadmin\poledit" for the Policy Editor and restrict users rights on your existing Win98 systems if they are older systems. Only allow them to run certain apps if you like. If your workstations are newer and will run WinNT/2K/XP properly, then go that way since it is the simplest way to go.

I know in WinXP if you don't give users "admin" rights, they cannot install any software.

Hi,

A few questions:

Are you sharing your internet connection with the workstations?
If so, what are you using? (Windows Internet Connection Sharing ICS, a hardware solution...)
Are you using Dial-up or DSL/Cable?
Does your Internet Service Provider (ISP) have a proxy server you can use?
Are you looking for a software solution?

Hi,

Win98se and Windows 2000 Pro (not server) both support ICS which will allow you to share an internet connection. Since one system acts as a gateway, it is the only one connected directly to the internet. It should be protected using a firewall. As far as monitoring, I don't think that option is available. Check out http://www.practicallynetworked.com/sharing/ for more info.

As far as a third party solutions, I never really had to use one since ICS is free with your Windows environment!
