PfSense + 2 ISP connection sharing + making a whitelist + hw questions
This post is related to the first one that I wrote a couple of months ago. http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,39444.msg203119.html#msg203119
I want to prevent everyone to access any website unless it is including in a predefined whitelist, is this possible with pfSense? Maybe with using Squid and/or any other packages.
Also if I want to make specific PCs to use specific connections, for example PCs from 1 to 20 can use ISP1 and PCs from 21 to 60 can use ISP2 throughout pfSense.
Is the performance of both pfSense and Internet connections would get better if I used internal ADSL modems directly inside pfSense box? And which kind of such modems are most compatible with it?
Finally I want to use an internal wireless access point so I can control everything directly from pfSense? Which one do you suggest?
I am using pfSense 2.0 with Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E6550 @ 2.33GHz with 8GB of RAM and motherboard bulletin Atheros Communications AR8151 v1.0 Gigabit Ethernet.

Yes, using Squid (and if the list isn't very small, in conjunction with SquidGuard) - see the Packages sub-forum where you'll find many threads on the subject.
Try searchingin the Routing and Multi WAN sub-forum, this thread looks relevant.
Using internal ADSL modems is unlikely to make any difference.
If you want to control it from pfSense then you want a wireless card in pfSense - see the Wireless sub-forum.
Thanks for replying! :)
Should I use the 32 or 64 bit of pfSense? I want to make use of all the hardware that I have. Also is the current version of pfSense based on FreeBSD 8.2?
