I have different remote users (from all around the world) who connect to a VPN and obtain certain IP which I have configure to have the Internet Guide with blocked sites. Everything works fine but I need to unblock some computers, ir other words, I need some computers that connect to that VPN not to be under the Internet Guide, so they have free access to the web.
I have been able to achieve that with the DynDNS Updater by Disabling Internet Guide on this PC, but I tried to do the same on another computer and it stills blocks it.
What can I do to solve this issue?
Thanks for your help!

Well, the major problem is that Internet Guide is rather for networks, not for particular devices. Configuring a different DNS service (or external DNS server addresses in general) on certain devices may have side effects like losing local name resolution.
That said, if devices connect via VPN to a network, it mostly doesn't matter what DNS service is configured on the devices, but they almost use the DNS service configured on the remote (VPN) network. Nevertheless, you may try to deactivate Internet Guide on certain computers using this description.
If you operate a more sophisticated network, you will configure your DHCP server to propagate different (internal or external) DNS server addresses to different devices, so that you control what DNS service each device is using. The DynDNS Update Client is of absolutely no relevance here, rather to the contrary, it would break your configuration with its Internet Guide option.
