I didn't explain it clearly, I'm really sorry.
For these machines that are outside the netblock group Iceweasel
still works if squid is switched off...
For the machines in the netblock group the internet connection is

My main problem is to avoid a complete switch off of
the whole network (as for example the administrative PC's) during exams.
