Stand alone linux/unix box just for web browsing
Posted on 2004-10-13
Hi Can anyone suggest where I can find good info on how to set up a stand alone computer that only has the ability to view web pages?
It would be on our LAN and would be for people to access our library database (which is web accessable) although if its successful we may use it as an open web browsing machine. We want it to be as secure as possible so I assume having it on a box with nothing else on it than a cut down OS and web browser is best option, as opposed to a windows installation which requires a license and is likely to be more open to hacking etc.
As a side note is there any way to restrict which pages such a machine can visit ie only the library site pages? I resonably new to linux/unix but am looking forward to learning, and would appreciate any help .
