Windows 7: Internet/Proxy Server

29 Jul 2011   #1

Windows XP Professional
Internet/Proxy Server

There is a marketing firm who has 40 employees. All the employees have internet access either from the office LAN or Wireless access on their laptops. I need a proxy server which takes care of following points:
1. Control the internet usage by allowing required websites.
2. Internet access must be monitored and reported.
3. Report internet activity of employees using laptops when they are traveling.

Can somebody suggest cost effective solution for our small organization?

Hi VS, welcome to sevenforums. An ideal solution would be from Untangle .com Multi-functional Firewall Software - Open Source Content Filter & Spam Filter | Go for the "Lite" version initially as it is free (can't beat free!!) then if you need further facilities, you can expand as required.
