During the course we show how to meet the strict requirements of an educational computer lab (including content filtering) using free and open source solutions (Linux, Squid, DansGuardian). We explain how to choose optimal network topology, what routing choices to make for both traditional and wireless Internet access. Most importantly we show how a person that’s not a Linux wizard can achieve all this by deploying a tested solution.
The course discusses the following topics, which are tested in practice by the participants:
- installing a content filter for web access on select computers on a network
- configuring firewall and routing so that advanced security policies can be enforced
- seamless Windows-Linux integration on the created network
