i am hired as a personal programmer of a company and basically know a little bit about networking just like connecting computers, mapping drives, setting up usernames and passwords, basic router configurations, and minor hardware/software/operating system troubleshooting.
what i wanna happen in our office is to have a dedicated server for all computer terminals. i want to make a proposal that :
1) everyone must login to the server before using the computer.
2) limit internet access - depending on the position of the employee (e.g. staff, supervisor, managers, executives) and / or we can control them that during office hours no one must access non-work related sites.
3) suppress downloading / installing programs to computers.
4) allowing / disallowing modifying system's default configuration (windows apeaance, backgrounds, start menu items, folder options, right clicks, enabling /disabling menu items)
btw, we're using windows2003 as our server. some clients use windowsXP and some use windows98. my problem with the network setup here is that our server is just considered as a server because all programs reside there and are just mapped in each computer terminal. but in reality, it does not have any control to its subordinates.
thanks in advance
