Hello all.

I have a challenge which requires someone's expert knowledge and I am hoping someone on here can help me out.

I work for a large arts space organisation in the UK, and we have our grand re-opening coming up at the start of May.

One of the Artists who is exhibiting, has created an interactive piece which involves a Website he's created - accessed via a touchscreen interface and visual projector that's all hooked up to a Mac-mini that's running on OSX 10.6.

What I what to do is set up the internet connection to this artists site via firefox, so access to all other sites is locked out (so when the public get to interact with this piece, they wont be able to go surfing onto other websites).

I've been looking at the system preferences and set-upand I'm guessing that the answer lies in there somewhere, but I could sure use someone's expertise in such matters to point me in the right direction!

Thanks in Advance

The Shale

There's an add-on for Firefox called "BlockSite". You could use that, set its preferences to "whitelist" (as opposed to blacklist), then add just the one artist's site. Of course… be sure users can't access/modify Firefox's preferences or run Safari.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
