I have a Windows SBS / Windows Standard server network (only connected through broad band and routers). The networks are growing in size of client computers and the requirements of the apartments access of Internet is growing far away from the "127.0.0.1" with exclusions, in an gpo policy. Also I'm in much more need of tracking Internet usage. Sad but true.

What is my best task here? Easiest and most economic way? I speculate in taking an old client computer, install a proxy software, give it a static ip and point all proxy setting through gpo to that proxy. Is that correct way to go? What software do I need? Is there something nice for a regular Windows XP client computer, or any easy to use linux dist and software for remote management?

Am I going to far, do I already have everything in my windows servers - or good enough to install the software?
(Except IAS for SBS2003, whish I can't use, how much i ever would)

Seems to be what I'm looking for.. I just have to learn about how to create client groups and difference policies (seems to be available only through a purchable add on). Also my remote networks logon totally phreaked out. It tooked over 30 minutes just to load the login prompt. I removed the untangle computer and the remote computers logged on just as usual.

I will check that with untangle team, though. Thank's for help
