Re: Restricting Internet Access

Squid Proxy sounds like a good fit. I played around with it for one of our sites and it was somewhat easy to setup. There are a couple of good youtube videos on how to get a simple installation up and running. I installed it using a Webmin configuration on a debian wheezy system.

I'm looking for suggestions on how to restrict access to the Internet at one of our work facilities.

It would be simple enough to not allow access at all during certain times of the day but I would prefer if there were a way to require a user to correctly enter a password to be able to access anything outside the local LAN. It's not practical to restrict access to the computers themselves. The shift workers need to use them to access maintenance records, etc.

The on site router is a Sonicwall TZ-100. It is physically secure from tampering and it would be possible to put something else in the same room to sit between it and the rest of the LAN.

Thanks for your input.
