How to create a wifi hotspot which forwards all web request to online content filtering proxy.

Last Modified: 2015-08-24
We use a hosted content filtering proxy on our company network to block inappropriate web content. The client PCs are configured in IE using a .pac file to point to the proxy filter.

I would like to set up a wifi access point which out clients can use to access the Internet, which will force their web requests to also be directed to the proxy filter. However I do not have access to their devices and so can't configure IE or other browser.

Is this possible?
