    Teachers laptops on wireless network

    Hope this is the right are to put this post

    Just set-up a mobile classroom in the school and now the teachers has discovered that they can also connect to the network and surf the net.

    If i allow them too

    The problem I have is if they logon on to the local laptop account they will be able to bypass the proxy. Yes I could set the proxy settings but if they need to use the Internet at home they will not be able to access the net.

    Is the a way i can stop them from bypassing the proxy while at school and have freedom to use the net with out the proxy setting intervening.

    Cheers

    Kev

    hope that made sense

    Do you use DHCP? If so set the Gateway to your proxy sever.

    Also set your border firewall to disallow traffic out on port 80. (You might need exceptions for some software updates to function, eg, Windows update).

    No, block it on your firewall at your networks border (or better yet use a transparent proxy).

    Do you use DHCP?

    What is your Internet connection, Proxy server and firewall? (You're Stockton LEA so I could guess...)

    Re: Teachers laptops on wireless network

    yep we use DHCP. Just installed the new easy net cache pilot proxy server a month ago.

    we dont have control on what ports we can block and uinblock on the firewall.....can i block the port 80 on the dhcp side of things....

    Re: Teachers laptops on wireless network

    There is an option on the DHCP server to set the gateway address (under Windows its called something like "003 Router"). I'm guessing at the minute its set to the IP address of your LES. If you change it to the address of your CachePilot it will force ALL computers using DHCP thru your CachePilot.

    If you want to firewall them give Easynet a ring and they will do it for you (they should have left you a firewall ruleset change form at some point in the distant past).

    Yep. Static IP for you, DHCP for everyone else.

    PM me if you need help.

    Re: Teachers laptops on wireless network

    How is the Cachepilot configured (does it use LDAP, does it allow anon access, etc.) ?
