Company Proxy and Airport Proxies

Posted on 2012-08-20

Company uses a proxy to monitor its employees. When the employee is remote (at an airport) they have to turn off the company proxy to use the airports proxy for internet. Is there a way to force them to use our company proxy and also tunnel to the airports proxy. This will allow us to monitor all internet activity of our employees.
Please respond soon and I will reward points.

    The only possibility to do so is to use vpn. Your outside employees have an not controllable internetconnection and you have to build a routing way back to your branch. SO you have to use a secure way for communication. If you have in the branch a cisco then anyconnect is the best choice. also openvpn is better then nothing.

    After VPN you can enforce the browsers to use the proxy in any case of browsing.

    Second option is more or less the same. You can use instead of a vpn an outside proxy service provider like symantec labs. then you can install a software proxy on these machines then they will always connect to the service and filtering of that service. the software proxy is for example a squid proxy

    can you be more specific in how you would enforce the browser to use the company proxy after they connect via the vpn?   In a nutshell what i'm trying to do is allow our administrators the ability to monitor all internet activity on our computers.  thanks

    Im wanting to force the user to use our proxy for all Internet activity. So if Joe the worker goes out in the field, I don't want him to be able to disable the proxy or use a direct connection without running through our proxy. So if he is on road an connects to say a hotel he uses their proxy an has to disable ours.  How can we forward all traffic so for the Internet to work he must also use our proxy.  Hope that makes sense

    Computer -- network connection -- company proxy -- allow Internet use.
