I am trying to look into firewalls and load balancers that a small to medium sized business would use.
Users range from 25 users up to 500 users.
Scenario: A hotel that provides WIFI for its guests.
Server: Linux based, any suggestions on what o/s to use on it?
Primary purpose of the server is for users to connect to the wifi, authenticate on the hotels splash page, be given an IP address and surf the web. Support has access to the server and can reboot AP's and or kick users on/off and reboot the firewall, as well as the server if need be.
Firewall: suggestions please? basically to help blacklist sites and or monitor bad sites?
Load Balancer: any and all suggestions please as I don't know how or in what capacity it would be used here? Any suggestions on use and s/w or h/w would be appreciated!
let me know what you got!
