Hello all,

I was wondering if there is a setting in GP that allows me to block IE
to only access a specific URL and nothing else. What I have is a
Windows 2000/XP user who is inputting orders via an HTML interface in IE
and we do not want him to be able to browse to any other websites other
than the order entry page.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Ugo
