TCP/IP

By mamimorena1 ·
Im doing a project and im wondering if anyone can give some input on a part of the project.It has to do with management does not want to deal with issuing and keeping track of TCP/IP addresses. there is going to be about forty employees that are in the business, but only 10 are going to have outside access to the network. should i be using a single server for this purpose of should i part of the root server?

TCP/IP

The usual approach for giving internal employees external access is NAT or proxy. In both approaches,
* All people get the same 'external' IP address (also very useful against hacking, hackers have only one entry point which of course requires strong attention)
* They have their own individual 'internal' addresses, often in the 192.168 range.
Use DHCP for this, this reliefs you from the need to keep track...

Have fun,

Utilize DHCP on your network. You can then use proxy on the server and only allow the server access to the internet.

Not only will this allow or deny you can provide logs of internet access, and deny access to certain sites. Radio, game sites, porno. The logs will tell you what to kill.

Good Luck Lee
