Title: Redirecting certain network traffic based on URL
Post by: Techstyle on July 05, 2012, 06:38:08 am
I have a std LMCE setup (external - core/hybrid - internal) network.  what I want to do is redirect certain traffic from the internal and core/hybrid that is bound for the internet through a VPN and the rest of the traffic via the normal route.  What is the best way to do this?

If really URL, I would use a proxy. If it is IP address, I would use route.

It would be URL.  Are the software components already there to do this or do I need to add something?  Can you direct me to the relevant config files or tools?

and software proxy should be able to do that. Look at Squid, if you want the most known one.

for anyone following this there is a wiki page for Squid:

not sure if I need a VPN client or how I direct certain traffic over a VPN while the rest goes directly to the Internet, anyone have any ideas?
