So's ours - you can use CensorNet in a number of topologies. We run it
as a classic "side" proxy. The client browsers are configured to use it
as a proxy.
I have installed squid & squidguard which might
work, but it looks like
I have to re-start squid to reload the settings.
CensorNet does it's access control at the MAC level. So basically it
firewalls certain MACs at certain times. No restarting of processes needed.
I think our it staff are after something that they can
turn access on
and off again every 10 mins during lessons without affecting other rooms.
You can do this - we have a profile for each room. You could set each
room up with a simple check box - on or off. The changes take up to five
minutes to take effect. (They are reloaded every five minutes via cron -
you could adjust this though.)
Sorry, I don't want to sound like I'm flogging this thing - it's just
that there are a lot of ways CensorNet can be used.
