It's been over 3 months, and I Still have not been able to recreate the solution. Sunday morning, ~10am CST, an old friend is Stopping by to pick his CD and laptop. <sigh> (& it's still not done!) - Id Really appreciate a Quick hand with this please.
I'd be happy to make a small donation to this website in your name, for a Working ISO if you'd please.
I just found this website! Thank You!

My friend has an older laptop (Toshiba Portege M400-S5032) that runs on Windows XP, (can I say that in here?- hehe) But, for a number or reasons ...

1.) I do Not run it off the XP OS, or the Hard Drive. Instead I want/need it to off of a Bootable Puppy Linux CD.

1a)The CD does not need to have anything else on it really. No video, sound, etc ... just the BARE Basics (built in mouse-pad, etc ...)

2. Our security doorman will be using it ONLY in our building, It will Never Leave the building, and will ONLY use our network WIFI.

3. We need it to go to ONE Website ONLY.
3a. Where our Security Doorman will enters the person's name, and will then get a report back with information about the customer. If he has access, or not, or if he is to break his legs (lol ok ok, I was just kidding about the legs thing! hehe)

Sadly, Ive been trying to get this done for nearly 3 months now! I KNOW this is NOT that hard to do, someone did it for me in our store years ago, when I had people log in to our site to to create an account, and enter their user info!
I just dont know how the Tech did it now! <sigh>

4. The only other concern is that the Puppy Linux does not allow "bad guys", Viruses, etc into the rest of the network either!

All I do know is that it was done with PUPPY LINUX! - and Nothing else!!

Please, Please, PLEASE Advise - Time is of the Essence.
Thank You[/code]

Is this website on the Internet or on a LAN (Local Area Network)?

You could set a rule to in the firewall to allow http access to a specific IP address (your website) and disallow everything else.

I never use the Puppy firewall because there is an integrated firewall in my router so I cannot advise on that. Presumably it is possible in the Puppy firewall?

Its on the INTERNET .. sorry, I didnt see your reply till just now... Oh I need to get this fixed for him ASAP ... Thanks. But .. Be advised, there is other activity on this network. For example there is a CCTV Security Cam System that we all log into from time to time, which can be from various locations. There is also one of those LEGAL music sites you pay xxx a month for music, among other things they do from their office. All of that has nothing to do with the laptop that I spoke of originally, but that laptop would be tied into that network via wireless wifi .

So to clarify, a patron comes up to the security booth upon entry. Hands the security guy his drivers license. Drivers License gets scanned, then the laptop uses the information to go to a specific website, to get information about the proposed patron. If acceptable, they can enter, if not, they get their legs broken... oops, there we go with the broken legs again! sorry! <smile>

I thought about that part of it .. but since there are several other computers, and CCTV equipment PLUS the music that comes from a Music Pay Site - I dont want to interfere with bandwidth, or anything that could SLOW down the network. The only way I think that could be done - PLEASE CORRECT ME IF IM WRONG - is if Id have the router identify the wireless laptop via Its MAC address - and have only THAT unit get restricted to the one website .. is that what your saying?

That sounds feasible if your router allows you to set a rule in that way.
