Default Blocking Websites

I have a windows 2000 Advanced server and I have turned it into an internet access server. Is there any way to block certain websites from users on my network?

If this server is also acting as a DNS Server, you could have the websites hostnames resolve to 127.0.0.1, for example.

You can do it in the hosts file

C:\windows\system32\dns\etc\hosts

map them to 1.1.1.1 or something

Dont use Cashe Pilot !! Dansguarden is a good program to use for webfiltering though.
