I provide a paid WiFi service in my local area, and I was looking into running an advert sponsored free access portal, preferrably via a PHProxy setup or similar, though Squid would be even better.
However I require the system to operate on an allow-list bases, for example:
To allow only specific websites. I'd also want most of the features in glype (http://www.glype.com/downloads/
) such as:
- conserve bandwidth by stripping out flash objects, video files, and other high cost, low value items
- work correctly with login sites (e.g. gmail, facebook)
While I'm sure this is all possible, I do not know if there is already a solution available.
My biggest challenge is now finding an advert provider that I can:
- use a single NAT IP for all earnings (not sure how this would work!)
- Ideally work in conjunction with the proxy to automatically allow all advert URLs
Do people feel that I need to possibly sell advertising space (mostly local space) rather than something similar to Google AdSense?
Thanks in advance for all your input.
