Recommendation for this network



  • Sorry for my english, not very good at writing.  :(

    Here's the scenario: a WiFi network for a university and I need to block content such like social networks and porn. I have been researching and already know about the HTTPS problem with this sites, so I was thinking about a Squid proxy + SquidGuard or maybe a Squid proxy + Diladele.

    I need to use a transparent proxy because many of the devices that will connect to the wireless network will be mobile devices and in many androids the WPAD configuration doesn't work. Also in many sites says that transparent proxies can't filter HTTPS and in other says that they can, so i need help with this part.

    Any suggestion will be aprecciated.

    Thanks!  :) :)

    About how many WiFi devices we are talking in that case?

    and I need to block content such like social networks and porn.

    And violence will be ok? But this should be your trail, so you could try to work it out with a Proxy server
    as a caching proxy too.

    Could be a real chance to realize it right.
