I have a new IT admin job at a school. My management wants me setup a proxy server so that we can filter the unwanted internet traffic (i.e. porn, torrent etc) and also they want to block social networking sites. Now i have configured a squid on ubuntu server and is able to block porn sites and doing a cache server for internet data traffic. I am still struggling to do the following:-
Server is a virtual machine
Server have a local ip adress
Server is restricted so that it can't reach the internet (not sure how)
Client machine have access to both server via SSH
Client have unrestricted access to the internet
I have root on both server and client (running Arch Linux on client and Gentoo on server)
Server can't access the client
I have a Dell PowerEdge Server and I want to make it into a whole site (location) proxy server so if anyone in the building uses our internet connection, they will have to go through this proxy to get out. I want to be able to block certain internet sites as well as monitor unproductive internet usage.
I have installed Ubuntu 14.04 Server as my Internet Gateway, with DHCP and Squid Proxy. I have wired and wireless connections now going through this server, and hence now fully monitored and controlled.
Now I want to restrict or block Internet access to Mobiles and Tablets, while allowing Computers and Laptops to access Internet wired or wireless.
All the internet access from my company needs to be pass through a proxy server from the Global server which needs a LDAP user name/password in order to access the internet resource. Recently, I purchase 2 set of Windows 8 professional 64B OEM machine, the IE is ok as I embed the proxy IP/LDAP user name/password etc..
