    Proxy Filtering HTTP

    Hi All,

    I have a neighbor using my wireless internet connection, this is because he works away alot and cant really afford a landline so I said he could use my wireless connection for the Internet.

    I noticed today when I went in to setup something on his PC that a few naughty sites have appeared.

    Rather than say get off my Internet due to looking at porn I'd rather put a proxy server into VMWare and run it on my network but How do I get his machine to go through it without having to go next door and set it all up ?

    Would it be possible for me to set some static routes on the proxy using the IP I gave him so that his traffic goes through the proxy ? is there a simpler solution ?

    Thanks

    Chris

    You need a transparent proxy.

    ok I've never set up a transparent proxy.

    I see this can be achieved in Linux with Squid and DansGuardian Ill check it out later on

    Thanks

    You could install Smoothwall Express with this - URL filter add-on for IPCop and SmoothWall

    Smoothwall express is a transparent proxy right out of the box.
