OS X Server - Restricting Outgoing Website Access
I have an OS X server 10.4, and I would like to restrict / disable outgoing http access to certain websites. I have been searching but no luck. Does anyone have an idea on what or how to do it?

Checkout Workgroup Manager under Preferences > Parental Controls. Just set as "Always" and add the sites you want to deny access to. You can base these preferences under User, Group, Computer, or even Computer Groups.

Parental Controls were added to the Workgroup Manager in 10.5.0. If you have the Leopard Workgroup manager it seems you can apply those settings to a Tiger OpenDirectory.
Personally my solution would be installing a Proxy Server.

But if you only want to block a few web sites then you can do it with some fire wall rules
If you users are at all sophisticated you are going to have to go the proxy/firewall method.
