Pfsense same subnet proxy… to monitor traffic



  • I need to monitor a few PC using using squid and lightsquid to see if a kid is going to inappropriate sites

    I want to keep the monitored PC in the same subnet… (ie i use printers, and NAS in the same network)

    I need help to create this transparent proxy? or filter bridge?  on the same network

    I CANT put the kid's PC in a different network

    is there a way to do this? i just want to use pfSense as a monitoring device



  • If you're looking for something quick and dirty, then yes… you can leverage, Squid, Lightsquid and SquidGuard for simple monitoring needs.  Here are some wiki's to get you started:

    For anything more advanced or more detailed, you'll need to implement a UTM.
