network access control

Specs: Windows XP
I'm trying to block some computers on my network from accessing the internet. I'd still like those to access emails via outlook. I just don't want those to access HTTP port 80. At the same time i'd like to give complete access (both internet and email) to some computers on my network.

I've tried the settings on my router. You can block a PC totally from accessing both internet and email (MAC FILTERING), and you can block ports... but NOT combinations of both (allow port 80 just for IP addresses 192.168.1.xx1, 192.168.1.xx2 and block the rest of the IP Addresses from using port 80).

Is there anyway, without using a firewall program, to control access the way I want?

You can go to each computer and put a line in their Hosts file that will keep them from getting on. Also, you can do it in Internet Explorer. Here's one way:

You can also go to your proxy server settings (in IE) and put in the loop back numbers ( But if the users are somewhat computer savvy, you'll probably have to reset all this once in awhile.

If you have a server set up you can control access through Group Policy Editor.
