I am looking for a best alternative of wfilter for windos, which i used to block and filter internet access of the users in company.
Now i want to switch to nethserver (Community version) for testing purpose, all the systems and server are windows based, and i configured port-mirroring with the pc that was monitoring and filtering the other’s internet access. With port mirroring enabled, all the internet traffic passed from router to my pc first, then my pc monitored and filtered it and passed the filtered internet to the users. Can i deploy this linux based os same way through port mirroring? As the internet will only reach the linux pc first and then it pass on? Or do i need to adopt different method? If i am not wrong pc with nethserver installed needs to sit at top of network in order to monitor and filter whole network…is it right?
Also tell me if i can install it on a pc with 4 GB RAM and intel core2duo processor?
