I suggest setting up squid as a transparent http and https proxy on your gateway and modifying the configuration to return a deny page for all addresses except the half dozen you want to allow. Make sure you block all other outgoing connections at the firewall.

If you don't have control over the gateway or it is running Winblows, you can use group policies and/or a modified hosts file on the local workstations. If you use Firefox the capability is built in. Just make sure to not give your employees admin rights or they can reverse any and all of this.

hosts file is located at %windir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

P.S. I suppose you could just break external DNS and create manual records on the DNS server for the half dozen sites you want to allow. Sorry, I'm not used to thinking about sabotaging internet access. This is fun! :tazz:
