I just need some help to get going here (until I ask again). I want to pass all my traffic from a switch through my server to a) control it and b) monitor it.

Why? A ten year old that I either have to ban from the net or help because she is her own worst enemy

I dont want DHCP but I do want (NEED!) to be able to monitor visited addresses and ban her MAC from sites and such.

I did have a plan for this day coming, but that was like 10 years ago and its well out of date.
