Dear Friend

Sorry for late reply as my sister was severly sick for last 20 days. However, just to specify my requirement, please note that I want to block web site visit i.e. when the user shall type www.yahoo.com in internet explorer, then "Page Cannot be displayed" would be displayed and this is how they will be restricted from web site visit.

N.B. I am using mail server on Red Hat Linux 4.0

Please come back urgently.


Regards

Nothing urgent about it

Try putting an entry for www.yahoo.com in /etc/hosts that point to 127.0.0.1

Hi,

You could also try installing squid and squidguard and then block the website using squidguard. This is a sensible solution and can be used to block other websites in the future. You could integrate sarg with it, to produce html logs of the websites being visited.

Another option is to get the IP address of the site and then reject it in your firewall configuration.

Regards,
