Description from the publisher
GateWall proxy server is a fully-fledged Internet management tool for providing local network users with Internet access using only one Internet connection. It provides centralized administration of all connections, utilized bandwidth and time users spend online; it automates calculations of consumed traffic, billing and Internet usage reporting.
GateWall provides a flexible network control by automating connection, work schedule, billing, traffic calculation and other routines with the help of "rules" - predefined scenarios. For example, without any human intervention, the program can shift the user billing plan from regular to special one, based on the web addresses visited, date, or specified time; it can restrict Internet access based on the users time online, traffic limits for a day or month, IP-addresses, URL strings, or specified traffic speed limits.
The administrator can view a detailed status of active session for each user - including IP address, user name, bytes sent or received, and visited URLs. By setting URL filtering policies, the administrator can restrict the user access to irrelevant websites, set up ad-filters and expose company bandwidth abuse.
