Assalmu Alaikum

Dear friend a user in my network uses internet illegally.


First I block his IP by using squid acl but he changes his ip address .

Now I apply MAC based restriction but now he change his mac address.


Please guide me how to get rid of this problem.

what kind of mac-based restrictions do you have? what are your squid.conf rules?

how is the user getting on your network in the first place?

Asslamu Alaikum


the is user part of our network his machine IP address is 172.16.0.18
i apply the following acl to block him

acl time-office src 172.16.0.18
acl time-office1 arp 00:1C:70:40:B9:A4


http_access deny time-office
http_access deny time-office1

i also carefully put these on right place. he also knows that users from ips 10 to 15 are allowed to use internet. he reads there mac from arp table and uses internet illegally when someone is on rest.


thanks

this isn't a technical problem, it's a social problem. this really needs a policy solution. are users allowed to change their ips/mac addresses by your management? if not, install arpwatch, wait until he changes his address, and then take the evidence in your logs to management. tell them, in writing if necessary, that you have a user who isn't permitted access to the internet, and is trying to circumvent your security checks. if the users use windows, you can try setting up a group policy on the pdc to prevent users from changing their network properties.

if your network switches allow it, force his port to his real mac address. that way if he changes it, it won't let his traffic through. your technical options on the server are to set up authentication in squid, and give your users usernames/passwords (different ones for each user). or, (it's wasteful) you can set up pppoe on the server and on valid client hosts and only allow access to squid from authenticated hosts.

when it's running, it'll log changes to mac addresses on the local network: if 00.aa.bb.cc.dd.ee used the ip 192.168.1.10 to send packets to/through your server, and then ff.dd.ee.aa.bb.cc starts using the same ip address, it'll log it somewhere in /var/log.

i haven't used it in years. try reading its documentation for the specifics.

If you are in office network then better solution is to use domain controller to restrict the user for being changing ip and mac or else use a manageable switch if you can go with active directory.

Dear smk08,

There are two types of policy.

1. Allow every one and deny few
2. Deny every one and allow few.

You have to use deny every one and allow few.

For Example:

# iptables -A INPUT -s 192.168.100.101 -m mac --mac-source 00:0F:EA:91:04:07 -j ACCEPT
# iptables -A INPUT -j REJECT


Where 192.168.100.101 is client IP Address and 00:0F:EA:91:04:07 is his MAC Address.

Best Regards.

PPPOE

Postby guddibaaz » Tue Jan 26, 2010 6:26 pm

Hi smoke,
There is no way to restrict if a user can change his mac address. For this you can configure RP-PPOE server http://www.roaringpenguin.com/products/pppoe which will only allow internet connection to authenticated users. You can integrate it with FREE RADIUS for accounting also but you will have to spend some time to achieve that

Dude ,


you can also do this in squid by recompiling with MAC support and allow only MAC's which are trusted rest of all should be denied some thing similar that furakh have suggested for Iptables which is also good solution on it
Cheers :)

yes, until the user changes his mac address as well as his ip -- something the user is already doing. again, another useless post.
