For public school project
« on: April 25, 2019, 08:34:23 pm »
Hi all,

can Zentyal handle 600-700 users for internet access filtering and firewall?
If yes, what should be the ideal spec?

Thanks to all

Hi!,

I installed Zentyal some years ago in a High School (~900 users) and it is still running.

The trick is to use Zentyal as default gateway and  to configure  DNS as transparent (So the little "hackers" can't change the  DNS). However, because the generalized use of HTTPS, most of the work relies on the "block by domain" Zentyal feature instead the old filter lists. It can be really boring as sysadmin.

However you could find useful the proxy feature that permits to limite the bandwith. I found it really flexible and useful.

Cheers!
