    Im not sure what you mean, but if you want to restrict/allow certain websites just open internet explorer and type a random adress and press enter. A window should popup where windows informs you that of security reasons the website has been blocked. In the same window you can access a "black" and "white" list for websites.

    To get normal web browsing on Server 2008 machines I just type "http://www.mozilla-europe.org/pl/firefox/" in the trusted page list and download Firefox.

  3. You want to limit access to the web. You do that in your Modem/Router/switch, not in Server 2008. Most modems/routers/switches have built in fuction to blacklist different users/sites/ips whatever.

    Although not all have it, so in my latest project i just made my own cheap router. Just take a junk computer, put two network cards in it for like 15$ each and install ClearOS which is an excellent Linux based router software which has LOADS of options and is free.
