I have a young family and we have 4 windows10 laptops and an imac, as well as iphones on our home network. As you can imagine, the kids are fast becoming experts as negotiating their way around/through both my microsoft family parental controls and also, the firewall settings on our home isp gateway.
I was thinking of setting up an internet proxy using one of my computer systems here, and routing all internet access for other desktop, laptops, phones, as well as our television/home entertainment system through it.
My thoughts are to:
- use Linux as the basis
- be able to selectively add restrictions via device or even better user level controls (that way higher level users are not restricted on any device in the same way the kids are)
Is virtualmin suitable for doing this kind of thing or am i better off just using something like ubuntu with gnome desktop interface?
I was wondering about the idea of substituting WAN for LAN with everything and doing this all inside Virtualmin on a home network, and then proxying through virtualmin to the outside world. I am not even sure i can get my head around what i am attempting to do yet…so help me please with the structure and details of how this might be done.
