Advice for network 500 users?



  • Hi people.

    I would like to have a advice about how to handle a network with 500+600 users, is a school and they want to block content, I will use squid, but my doubt how I can handle each student access?

    create student = username
    1 user for all?

    The point is that I need to get reports and see what is doing each one.

    Squid is my tool.

    Someone here with experience in this field maybe could share some knowledge about how to handle a school network 500 users administration.
    Any input will be appreciated.

    Thanks!!!



  • Have you looked at the captive portal feature of pfSense?

    The captive portal feature can work with a Radius server to do authentication, for example against an LDAP directory containing all the student accounts such as Microsoft Active Directory or whatever system the school uses.



  • squid on pfsense can work with AD authentication. How well it integrates with squidguard/dansguardian i don't know.
