Add Restricted users in Active-Directory (For Internet Use Only)

Hi Members,
I am very new to Networking and Windows 2008. Recently Our ISP connected internet through our server and we are using internet through our LAN Cable.

We have are few computers that are put for public use by visitors/guests.

I am trying to create a User profile in active directory so that these users do not use any of our network resources like printers shared drive etc..but only use internet.

Note that for any new user 2 network drives are automatically mapped H drive (for User Only) and P drive (shared drive).
For the visitors account, these mapped drives should not be shown and also they must be given very limited rights.

How can I achieve this using active directory or if not any other tool available in windows server 2008? pls help

Thanks all.

Hi,

1. To help you on the network we need to know how your network structure like do you have Firewall, DNS server, and so on..

Anyway my guess that your network will be like all client gateway are point to the server then the server to firewall then modem, something like that.
So your guess computer can set direct to the modem.

2. The automatic Map network drive can be set on the user profile using batch file
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. net use z: \\Server\folder

Hi thanks. It was just simple. I created a Guest account on local PC and logged in locally and just plugged in the cable and was able to access internet. Because I did not log in using LAN user profile the guest cannot use any of the LAN resources.
