Redirect all surf traffic to local webserver

Msg#: 4497247 posted 8:41 am on Sep 19, 2012 (gmt 0)


On a seperate vlan, I will install dns/dhcp/web server. What I want to do after this is when a user connects to this network, when they try to surf, all requests will be ending up at my webserver that I will setup.

User connects to network, opens IE or whatever, and writes www.google.com
When the user hits enter, mywebpage.com will me shown. This solution is in use at airports etc. but I can't find a way to set it up.

What your attempting to do is no simple task.

Try a google on "intranet" and "extranet" in order to understand.
There are software's designed specifically for this intention.

After some more researching I finally found what I was looking for. It was a captive portal that I was looking for.

But to setup a DNS server to only reply with the same page no matter what shouldn't be a big problem thou?
