How to apply Policy on Workstation (There is no Active Directory)

Jump to solution

Greetings!

Dear Friends,

We have MWG virtual appliance on VMWare. The console is connected via host (physical) machine. Simply we want 100+ workstation to be managed their internet access via MWG.

1- How can we apply policy/rules for content filtering, URLs blocking etc. on 100+ workstations?

2- Is it necessary to have AD for implementing MWG?

Thank You!

Best Regards,

Hi Mikrotik,

Without AD or some sort of directory resource to know who someone is, then we cannot differentiate who they are unless you do it based on IP address.

Otherwise, you dont need AD or LDAP unless you want to authenticate peoples.

Hi Jon,

1- Please clarify, where do i have to define the IP Address in order to authenticate users?

2- Do you mean that if we do not have AD or LDAP then users Cannot authenticate when they surf internet?

I am understanding authenticate means when a user open Internet Explorer and Open any site e.g. www.mcafee.com then the user will be prompt for giving specific credentials?

Thank You!

Hi Mikrotik,

I think there is a bit of confusion here. I dont understand your questions.

What are you trying to do? What is the user experience you want?

Given there is no AD, I can only see filtering being done based on IP address.

Best Regards,

Jon

Hi,

In addition to above question; How to deploy Web Gateway in Network? I have configured end user gateway / DNS.

McAfee Gateway IP Address: 192.168.116.131

Client IP Address: 192.168.116.130

The Client Gateway and DNS configured as McAfee Gateway IP Address.


Is this Correct configuration?

Thank You!
