We have a small site with just one server on the site. I would like to be able to verify the subnet has access to the internet without unduly risking harm to the server.
We currently have internet disabled on this system ( I do not know just how ). I would like to be able to run a script on the sever to verify we can get to the internet and perhaps limit it to a very very small list of sites ( 1 or 2 will do )
Or would there be a very cheap device ( linux ) I could use as a remote workstation. I kinda hate to burn that much electric using an old noisy workstation that is free
