Redirecting all users to internal webserver



  • Hi Folks.
    is it possible to redirect users to specific location (internal webserver) with pfsense.
    if they want to download certain file types (.zip, .rar, .exe) from internet.
    i had a look at the layer7 stuff but it only had an option to block, NO Redirection.
    Thanks in advance.

  • Maybe something squid can do in transparent mode?



  • I re-read this and its clear I made some assumptions in my head about what you are trying to do.  Are you trying to re-direct them so the download of these file types occurs locally or are you re-directing in order to scan them for viruses, etc?



  • Hi  loupalladino
    Yes i'm trying to redirect the users to a internal webserver where "thebear" front end tool for "aria2" is hosted so that users can download files using the "thebear". Yes,if i can only redirect users web address based on the download extension .zip, .mp3 .rar than my mission would be accomplished.
    Many Thanks
    Kalu



  • Namaste/konichiwa, pfsense gurus.
    could you please show me the way, it's total dark over here.
    what i want to do using pfsense is,
    If users browser's url is detected as http://www.download.com/pfsense.zip or .rar or.exe
    Pfsense should redirect the user to my internal webserver where the bear is running.
    and user can download it from thebear's page.
    for it i have made 2 softwares running in my network
    –--

    1. The RPC Listener
      http://aria2.sourceforge.net/

    1. The Front End Tool
      http://sourceforge.net/projects/thebear/

    in which direction to look for  ? I will walk the way myself :-)
    Is this possible with pfsense ?
    Thanks
