I've had it up to here <puts hand way above head> with morons at work going to sites and downloading crap on the PC's.
We have PC's that are so bogged down with crap like Bonzibuddy, ezula and other spy/adware that people are bitching and moaning that everything is slow.
So, since my boss is out and I'm bored I'd like to set up a proxy server or something that will allow us to filter sites to certain people.
Some people will need unrestricted access (Like I.S.
), some will need to go to most places, but I would like to filter illegal/inappropriate sites and sites that contain spy/adware.
Then others will need access to 1-5 sites. The rest get Nothing (Nothing Lebowski!).
Since I'm still not a Linux Guru, I'd like something that's not going to be too terribly difficult.
ATM, I'm looking at Wingate/Winproxy but they're expensive and will be hard to get the cheapska... I mean the administration team, to approve that kind of money.
So, I'm wondering what some good cheap (possibly free?) 'alt-os' based Proxies there are.
We are running almost all Windows PC's and have approx. 300 users. It must be STABLE and must allow VPN access.
