Netgear ADSL Wireless router, NAT and proxy?
Posted on 2004-09-10
I have been doing some research on various proxies, and I have finally found one that is very simple to use and seems to be reliable.
Now I'm stock on the next step. I feel that having a proxy is pretty much useless you can ensure that users will not simply change their connections settings in IE from using a proxy to the IP of the ADSL Router.
I contacted one of the companies that sell a proxy and they told me to disable the NAT on my ADSL Router, but when I do this it gives me a message saying that my ADSL router will only act as a router? Also, it no longer allows me to access anything on the internet.
Is there a way to ensure that users can not use the IP of the ADSL router and are force to go the the proxy address only, not via IE settings and policies, but through networking?
There has to be a way to do what I'm explaining here as I just think this would be too open if users knew the IP of the ADSL Router.
