I am in need of configuring squid proxy server just to block Internet for
specified machines in my network, content filtering and site blocking for
our institution in working hours. (Don't want to use the above facilities
from my router) In other times all machines can connect to Internet without
any restrictions. I am trying squid with Ubuntu 10.04 with two NICs in my
server. My Idea for network setup is
Internet line ----> My Proxy server -----> My internal router ----> My
Is the setup is correct.
If I keep my proxy server as one of the machine in my LAN like this
Internet line ----> My router ----> LAN with proxy server.
Then I may need to configure proxy in all user's IE and firefox. and the
user's may change it when they need. so I think first method is correct. is
My proxy server has two NICs in that I am trying to configure WAN in eth0
and the connection to router is through eth1. so that nobody can connect to
Internet without proxy.
How to do this? any idea. please help me.
