Hello all, I'm a new user to DaniWeb as of today, and am looking for some help with a business related issue.
Let me be as concise as possible here; what I would like to accomplish is creating a Windows XP system that is completely locked out to the user, except for 2 specific items. 1 of those being a internally hosted SharePoint Site that is in our local network, so therefore, access to IE but only for a single site address. The other is a program to get access to one single program.
That is it. No start menu, no ability to get to a command line, no right click "properties" options, nothing. just 2 icons on the desktop, one being the IE shortcut to our SharePoint site, the other to a single terminal program.
The idea behind this is to put it out into our manufacturing plant so that the shipping & receiving department can check the shipping schedule as posted on the SharePoint Site, and have access to a telnet based program to do the receiving of product into our inventory.
Now i know that there are software kiosk programs available, but i have read through many online forums and articles that have mentioned the ability to do this to the system without relying on external software. I was wondering if there is a few good people here who may have a greater understanding of the local machine policies and how they operate within a stand-alone windows XP environment.
For those of you who are able to help me out on this one, don't fret over coming up with a simplistic way of explaining things, I am quite knowledgeable with regards to the windows OS, but this gets into the realm that escapes me.
Thank you all in advance for any assistance that you can offer.
