Dowse eases the configuration of network routing for a local area network, starting from the setup of ARP-level static entries of known peers, IP-level firewall, DHCP configuration, and local DNS cache, up to an application layer transparent proxy and optional gateways to anonymous networks such as Tor and I2P. It consists of a minimalistic script which can run on any GNU/Linux box and which, from a central configuration point, controls Ebtables, Iptables, and all the daemons needed for such operations: DnsMasq, Squid2, and Privoxy. It comes with a module system for contributed add-ons like DNSCrypt-proxy and HTTPS-everywhere.
ufdbGuard is a URL filter. The URL filter blocks access to sets of Web sites and cooperates with the Squid proxy. It integrates with LDAP, Kerberos, Active Directory, MySQL, and others to define different ploicies for different groups of users. ufdbGuard also enforces SafeSearch for many search engines, blocks Skype, UltraSurf, Tor, unsafe HTTPS sites, and dynamically detects proxy tunnels. The multi-threaded daemon uses a fast algorithm that does 50,000 URL verifications per second on an Intel Core 2 Duo (Conroe) at 2.4 GHz.
SquidTL allows proxy administrators to manage proxy users: define how much time users can spend on a specific Web site, block sites, limit total time users can spend on the Web daily, and watch users' activity. For example, you can limit the use of Facebook or other social networks with per-user rules or IP. It has a small memory footprint and very fast execution. Management can be done with a smart Web-based administration GUI.
