Hey all, i have a question that might be relevant for more people around the world.
I am looking for a tool that can "categorize" my traffic and allows from some "drill down" stuff. I have young kids and I don't want to BLOCK their internet, however, i do want to "know what they are up to"... high level off course. Does anyone know a tool where it can show categories? Stuff like: Youtube for X hours, facebook/sociual media 50 times, and so on... filterable per device, time, ...?
Basically an IDS, but i don't care about content, blocking, blabla... it's just "knowing".
Ow, i have an x86_64 router, so i don't worry (yet) about performance
Well, yes, all that. I know it's all easy to bypass. I have adguard home running as DNS server (in a separate container on a different box). These are exactly the reason i don't want to block anything. I would just like to know... not give them a reason to outsmart dad
But maybe you're right, maybe it's not something i should strive for. I'm just a sucker for insights
You can set up squid as an explicit proxy, and block outgoing port 443 and port 80. Then analyze the squid proxy logs. You just get DNS names of sites being requested, but it's mostly enough for what you want. You'll get the DNS names even if the browser does DoH
