Help to set up Linux Box As a network gateway
I want to set up Linux Box as a network gateway on my drilling RIg just after the Satellite Modem.Our ISP has assigned a fixed IP address for us.I would like the box to do the following,
1.act as a transparent proxy - without users having to configure access through proxy
2.Virus-scan all web traffic
3.QoS- Allow real time traffic like VOIP to have precedence and not go through virus scan.Introduce no latency in traffic
4.Squid proxy does not allow POP and SMTP.I would like users to be able to use POP/SMTP
5.Content blocking - like ads and adult stuff blocked
6.Measure real bandwidth usage
I am not a trained IT professional.But an Electrician doubling up.(I like IT though)
Partly,I want to do it to learn.Partly,I want to do it as a proof of Linux capability in my all MS Windows company.I have scattered knowledge of the stuff mentioned.If somebody lists the steps I need to take,I can implement them figuring out details after studying.I want to use Opensuse,for I know it better than other distros and availability of Yast.But I am open to suggestions.
Thanks in Advance.
