Home Server Tools?
So I'm setting up a home server, and there are some very spesific things that my "customer" wants to do. I was wondering what are the best server tools/tips/tricks/etc to do the following:
- Deny some computers access to the internet, but allowing them to access the internet when the "customer" wants to.
- allow for game playing between computers, with no internet access
- Nameing scheme for them all the computers (about 8ish? some laptops some desktops, laptops connect VIA wireless access)
- Internet filter (Dansgaurdian?)
Now this customer wants to be able to modify these settings himself, but doesn't have the best of computer knowledge, IE: GUI interfaces will be nice, but he is adaptable.
This server will be running SLES, or Suse Linux Enterprise Server.

yes, squid will probably be your best bet for internet filtering. for web management I always used webmin as it has a module for squid (and squidguard if you use that).

Here is a very good squid guide for SUSE ---> SDB:Basic Configuration of a Proxy Server - openSUSE
And this one small guide for squidguard ---> Linux.com :: Using squidGuard for content filtering
