My apologies if this has already been asked. I hope that I have made it to the correct forum.
I am a long time Barracuda user. I have downloaded Untangle and installed it on a spare HP server. So far I am impressed.
The new firmware for some of the higher -end Barracuda Web Filters allows for a "policy lookup only" mode. What this means is that a remote client (say a laptop on the other side of the world) can query the Web Filter for policy and or blocking information. This is done by way of an agent software that runs on the computer which is configured with the IP of the appliance.
There is no VPN here, and the local Internet connection is always used, the policies are checked against the Webfilter but no traffic is passed through it. Very little bandwidth is needed.
Can this be accomplished in any way with Untangle? Sorry if this is a silly question. I am just getting started here with you guys and anxious to learn more.
