Set up restricted users in additional PC's .
In administrator mode enter IP adress/ mask/...., but do not enter gateway address

There may be other solutions if you have router or proxy server on network.

There are a few ways this can be done but we will need a few more details.

Is you machine a server or is it just another XP Pro PC?

If so, do the users of all 20 PCs have to log on to your server?

Is there any scope for using a router?

Is there any scope for using software based proxy?

What sort of internet connection do you have?

Once you've given us a little more details, there are lots of simple ways your configuration can be acheived.

I hope this helps.

If you use a router it is simple to select only certain IP addresses to allow.

The others you can block.

But give further info on your set up as said previously.
