Allowing access only to specific websites?


Hi i have 5 desktop computers running Mandriva 10.1 which are going to be used to access certain websites. There are only 3 websites so it is nothing too major. I was wondering what the best way to do this would be?

My thinking was to create a white list in shorewall or smothwall on each computer.

a squid proxy would be the easiest way, whether that's within smoothwall is up to you...

Isn't smoothwall a seperate distribution As acid_kewpie suggested just set one of them up as a squid proxy and make all the others go through it to reach the net.
