    Question Different IP Groups for different networks


    I want to create different IP based groups so that I may assign different settings according to that group.
    For example

    Group1
    172.16.1.x For Officers

    Group2
    172.16.5.x For officials

    Group3
    172.16.8.x For Hostels

    and so one
    So according to this group settings i will allow the bandwidth, accessing of audio/video site.

    So i just need help how I may configure these groups

    Regards
    Asad

    Let me add few more data

    Group1
    172.16.1.x For Officers

    In this group i want to limit and add some restrictions along with bandwidth limitations. So that other group may not be effected with these settings

    So I want to repeat this for each group with different policies/restrictions. Keeping these all factors, I need help that how to create or define these IP groups and how restrictions be added in each group

    You'll need:

    1] dhcp server(s) that assign(s) correct ip's to the hosts within the subnets
    2] a firewall that marks packets based on subnets
    3] a traffic shaping tool that decides some fancy packet priority based on the marks done at step 2]; basically just QoS that can be configured with tc; tc knows about qdisc with some algorithms and the one you want is htb

    squid is a proxy and afaik it doesn't fulfill all your requirements:

    1] squid is no dhcp server
    2] squid is no firewall
    3] squid is no traffic shaping tool
