RE: RE:restricting outbound access?

That has been done already the only problem is people compile there own executables. I run a server for kids at a local school and you know how some kids can be. I have already had to ban several users for compiling scripts to launch attacks on other machines. I strictly enforce there acceptable use agreement through the school but sometimes that just isn't enough.

How about group access privileges on the offending executables?

Seems to me to be the natural method of restricting access to stuff.
