Does anybody know how to lock down proxy and home page settings in firefox through K12LTSP EL5? I need to be able to selectively
lock down some workstations that will be in a "student" group so they can only access certain educational sites. Access to these
sites will be controlled through a SquidGuard whitelist.
I can do this fine using the login script function of Samba and Firefox running on windows based workstations, and can also lock
Locking down Firefox on windows workstation requires that I rewrite (through vbs scripts pushed over at login and executed) some
config files under C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox and C:\Programs Files\Mozilla Firefox\greprefs. Anybody know how to do get the
same results through K12LTSP EL5?
I can force all thin client traffic through port 3128 with Squid running as a transparent proxy and eliminate the need to configure
client proxy settings in Firefox, but I would also like to have clients authenticate so I can manipulate SquidGuard based on username.
