I have another topic to address to you.
I have set up a proxy with url filter in both apartments so that we can at least protect our children a little. I know there are ways and means to get around this, but not all of our children are on their toes
I made the proxy and url filter according to the instructions, also the DHCP with the wpad option. (Instructions Anleitung).
I also have a green network - internally, mine is also used for work, and a blue network for the children’s cell phones and tablets.
Blue is separated from green by a firewall and is not allowed to access it.
As mentioned, I made Web Proxy Auto-Discovery Protocol (WPAD) / Proxy Auto-Config (PAC) according to the instructions.
If I log in with my mobile phone in blue for testing, nothing works at first, only when I manually enter the proxy in the WiFi connection, I have access to the Internet and this is also filtered as it should be.
But, via mobile phone (netz blau 192.168.253.0/24) I cannot download via DHCP or manually (http://192.168.253.254/wpad.dat or 192.168.253.254/proxy.pac). Nothing happens there.
Amazingly, I can download the wpad.dat and proxy.pac from the green network (192.168.254.0/24).
Is the web server only listening for green = 192.168.254.0/24 ??
I also have to say that I only tried it in the green network with a Windows 10 … and amazingly (because green can access blue, but blue cannot access green) also wpad and proxy.pack from blue download via 192.168.253.254/xxx.
If I log in to blue with my cell phone, an Andriod cell phone, it doesn’t work.
How can that be? Perhaps you’ve dealt with it before? I would be very grateful for information, somehow you have to protect your children a bit …
Many thanks in advance, greetings M.
