What I tried... was to block all www traffic (port 80) using ipchains or
some firwalling
then ... the only way to surf was with your proxy server....
However... be careful if your web server is on the same as your proxy....
I tried that once......because I blocked port 80... the local workstations
couldn't hit
the local web server....
the ipchains how-to is pretty good....
The other option is to use transparency proxy.....
