    Default Untangle Tip of the Day! (Web Content Control, client pass list)

    If you have some users that need full access to the web and not be subjected to the block categories/lists, this tip will be an easy solution. As you know, the web content control module offers both pass and block URLs. On the Pass List tab, you have the option to click the "Clients". You can add the client's IP address and this client will be able to go anywhere on the web, while everyone else be be subjected to the block and pass categories/lists.

    How does this help if you use DHCP for all computers?

    Default You can bind a MAC address to get the same IP address

    Configure DHCP server to bind a MAC address to get the same IP address on the address pool.

    Default PC Swapping and DHCP

    The binding to the mac address does not work as we image all PC's and whenever a PC is faulty, we swap it out with a newly imaged PC and thus we create a cycle of computers. This cycling of PC's will change the MAC address and since we have 36 different sites with different IP schemes from 192.168.0.x to 192.168.38.x. What about the Active Directory Users? Anyway to do it with that as well to allow the user login name "TSMITH" to allows be allowed without filtering?

    Thanks,
    Joey

    Brainz, very good point. We are working on the 4.2 to support AD integration for the reporting. After that, we are working on the policy management with AD. Please stay tuned, we are very close to making this possible with the upcoming releases of the Untangle.

    Wouldn't it be easier to also add hostname resolution if you have Untangle pointing to you internal DNS server?

    Default Else...

    The best solution would be getting the AD module (al-a-carte) from Untangle.

    If you are doing professional networking (ie:file sharing, printers etc.) you shouldn't be running DHCP, in the first place. So many advantages to using manual assigned ip addresses as oppossed to using DHCP. DHCP is really only good for one thing. BROADBAND SHARING IN A DIY HOME INSTALLATION.
    And, it doesn't always work doing that.

    For printers, routers, switches and other pieces of network infrastructure, you're very right. For users, using static addressing (particularly in a Windows shop) makes user administration a full time job, and you still have to get the network part of the job done too. That doesn't even consider the Help Desk who has to deal with the people who take their laptops home or on the road.

    You must only have a few computers to administer and no laptops. Try your solution on a network with 1,000s of computers and many laptops going between sites. What a nightmare!

    Your thinking is very shortsighted and I think the opposite of what you are suggesting would be true. Static for home installation and DHCP for larger installs.
