      • Microsoft® Windows® 2000 operating systems include a variety of technologies that communicate with the Internet to provide increased ease of use. Browser and e-mail technologies are obvious examples, but there are also technologies such as Automatic Updates that help users obtain the latest software and product information, including bug fixes and security patches. These technologies provide many benefits, but they also involve communication with Internet sites, which administrators might want to control.

        Control of this communication can be achieved through a variety of options built into individual components, into the operating system as a whole, and into server components designed for managing configurations across your organization. For example, as an administrator you can use Group Policy to control the way some components communicate, or for some components, you can direct all communication to the organization’s own internal Web site instead of to an external site on the Internet.
