how to force users of a network browsing on internet to an intranet first

Hi,
im using Window 2003 server, a wireless LAN, and 75 users, all of them need internet, so troughout a proxy i give the internet access to all of them but i need to all my users go to the intranet first to see the new and posts.
is there any way to do this?, the user opens the browser, they got into the intranet first and after that they push a button or a comand embeded into the intranet grants them access to the web, whitout returning to the intranet, unless they close the browser and open it again.
can anyone help me?? any ideas?? thank you in advance for all your ideas.

Usually this is done in a soft way setting the default address during a build, usually a SOE. If they are not admins of their machines you may be able to lock this address through preventing them changing it.

Another interesting way is to run all users as thin clients through virtualization, but that would require a total rebuild.

The other way is to email a regular newletter with top stories and more details through a link. Have all internal applications linked only through the intranet. Make it a useful application, take feedback etc.

You may be able to have your default browser load on starting up when the system loads.

Beware - people hate hostage marketing, where they have no choice, and this may further encourage non compliance.

Thnak you, i already thought on those solutions, i even makin a toolbar who gives info and redirect to the intranet, actually i develop a WiFi-Vsat system who can give internet to small cities on my country who doesnt have connectivity, and the Satellital connection can support only 20 users, but i made it work for more than 120, using cache, firewalls, and a special software who made all tis possible, and the idea of routing all my users to the intranet is to show them the status of the service, remember to them when they have to pay, useful downloads to make their navigation better, updates of antivirus and all kind of stuff for them; but actually im needing a solution to route my users to the intranet without have to install any toolbar or modify the users default web site on their browser.

Can be done with group policy object. Do a little research on GPO.
