I wouldn't bother - I'd just set up an ACL on the router to the Internet and not let any port 80 traffic out except from the Squid server. That way people HAVE to go thru Squid to gte to the Internet.

How do you reach the Internet if you don't have a router?

Granular recovery for Microsoft Exchange

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

Your DSL connection is a router. Just because it doesn't say "router" on the case doesn't mean its not a router.

Unfortunately, its not a router you probably have control over. And that's what you're trying to get here, isn't it? Control over the connection and how its used.

If your DSL provider cannot give the level of control you want to you, then you needs to:

a) Find a new DSL provider who CAN give you the level of control you want

OR

b) Add the necessary network infrastructure needed to give you the control you want.

Possible way of doing PsiCop's b is to add a second NIC to the linux box and only connecter the router to the Linux box, so that everybody has to use the Linux box as a proxy server.

Then you will probably want to also investigate something like squidGuard which allows you to implement blacklisting of millions of sites: http://www.squidguard.org/

It's not so important to authenticate if you can simply stop people going to the sites you don't want them at.

PS, what type of DSL router do you have?

Sometimes you can achieve some level of configuration by pointing your web browser at the default gateway address.  You'll almost certainly have to use the command line interface to do anything sophisticated though.
