  • setting up the simpliest proxy :)

    Hi Guys,

    i need to setup a simple proxy server,
    what i only need is allow access to 1 specific web site with the easiest way, with central management, so a few workstations can browse 1 or 2 internet sites only.
    this proxy server will forward requests to another proxy server which we must use to go to the real world.
    is it possible to block web pages this way and allow what i want?
    if needed i will install proxy freeware util on each of the workstations,
    but i prefer a proxy server if possible, and the main issue this proxy must use the other proxy to get to the internet.

    Thanks,

    there are maybe better solutions but you can try IPCOP with proxy addons.

    i have used that proxy addon its based on squid and they have nice GUI for it.

    btw its opensource... most of it.

      Hi Yaniv, i don't know linux at all, heard of squid and got a friend which is an expert and might help me.
      Any idea where to start?
      Thanks & Regards

        sorry for the late answer.

        if you install ipcop you don't need any Linux knowledge.
        every thing is in the http Gui.

        if you plan to install a Linux Box i would use Centos5...
        very easy installation and nice Gui.
        packe installation later is also easy with a command called yum

        example

        Code:
        yum search httpd
        that would give you some available packe list and then you choose you packe and type

        Code:
        yum install packe-name-here
        sure you have to configure that packe later... but its not so hard
