I would like to be able to set up an Internet connection for one of our
offices using a Linux system as a firewall. Okay, this is easy enough
using ipfwadm which supports packet logging as well.
Problem: Management are saying: "Great, but we need to keep track of how
much each user accesses the Internet, you can only give us data on what
each /machine/ is doing - not good enough."
Their solution is to install MS Proxy Server on one of the NT servers.
I really, really don't want to have MS Poxy Server on any of my
PS, Ideally I want to be able to track access by NT user account, but I
can probably kludge that up with Samba, if I can get accounting
happening on a Linux user account basis.
