WinGate's log files contain all of the information needed to monitor Internet traffic on the network. WinGate creates a log file that displays all Internet traffic, as well as logs specific to certain protocols (WWW - browsing, FTP - file transfer, etc.). This gives administrators the ability to view specific Internet activities. Administrators are also able to view Internet traffic in "real time" within the WinGate interface (GateKeeper), letting you see user activity live.
To prevent unauthorized Internet traffic, WinGate allows the creation of policies/black or white lists. These lists can be enforced network wide, or specific to users and groups. This means that you can deny one or a select group of employees' access to unapproved web sites. Users and groups can be imported from an NT user database, and authentication for users can be accomplished through a user name and password, IP address, or computer name.
WinGate offers a wide variety of criterion to scale Internet access rights, including:
Website - what websites can or cannot be accessed
Time - define specific timeframe users are allowed to access the Internet
Application - what applications (e.g. IE, Outlook) are permitted to access the Internet
The Transparent Redirection (TR) feature in WinGate ensures that Internet requests made through the WinGate Internet Client (WGIC) or Network Address Translation (NAT) are routed through the proxy level of communication with no special configurations required. TR allows administrators to create policies in a centralized location, and benefit from applications that require proxies, such as the WinGate plug-ins: GateFilter and VisNetic AntiVirus.
Estou usando o Windows 2000 server , mas o problema do uso do NAT do windows 2000 é que ele não tem cache, e o processo do armazenamento em cache otimiza muito a largura de banda disponivel , principalmente em rede com mais de 60 maquinas ( como é o caso )
Vc já usou esse plugin GateFilter ?
