I currently control some internet access via a cheat of sorts for specific users on our network. Using group policies in active directory, I have setup a policy that forces users to hit a false proxy for non "Intranet" pages. Basically, I send them to 0.0.0.0 to prevent internet access to computers in a manufacturing environment who use shared workstations.
My current dilemma is that we are starting to utilize some Google services and i need to open up internet access, specifically to translate.google.com
In my current situation, would it make sense to setup an actual proxy server to allow this?
Does anyone have a recommendation?
In the near future, we will be upgrading our environment so that our web filter will be able to handle these requests without the need for the work around. I intend for this to be a short term solution.
Any help appreciated.
