Setup a proxy Windows Network
Posted on 2008-10-20
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)
