student laptop proxy
setting up a debian proxy for students personal laptops on a vlan. 2 nic job 1 > vlan, the other > router
was figuring i'd do
some kind of firewall thing
maybe automatic config script for browser settings.
just setting up dhcp and thinking if i dont allocate addresses I can just have reservations as an additional layer of security but maybe there's better ways? mac filter on firewall software perhaps
what do you think?

Perhaps. But if your access points and switches support it, you would be better with RADIUS in MAC-login mode. Then only approved machines can even connect to the APs.

In that case, it's extra administrative overhead that you don't need.
