Web Content Filter Server

Asked by Chris L on 2011-05-20

I have installed Web Content Control on a few workstations. The problem is that I would like to integrate the Ubuntu computers in the company to read from the Ubuntu server. If I need to add a different website to the white-list, I don't want to have to configure every host individually. Instead I would like to configure it on the server, and then have the server update all computers with the new unfiltered website. Does anyone know how I can accomplish this and/or if there is a different program that I can use to accomplish this task.

You can use squid to proxy the content

I attempted to configure squid before. Can you point me to an understandable forum that utilizes squid? I know that I can use it as a proxy but would I not also have to use something like dans-guardian for web-content filtering?

This does look helpful. Will this allow me to lock-out access to all websites except for the few that I need the users to access? It would also need to be configurable for a per user level. Obviously some administrators need access to a few more sites than other non-admin users.

Yes define desired acl in squid.conf file

main refence the squid site: http://www.squid-cache.org/Support/

then google is your friend here...
