I was just wondering if any of the experts here could advice me on this.
We have a small library in our municipality that wants to give its customers access to the Internet using thin clients. They want to be able to control the time a customer is allowed to use the Internet. Of course they have a limited budget. As the rest of our network is 100% Cisco I am wondering if there is a Cisco solution for this scenario too? I know about the NAC appliance, but it is a bit expensive. How about buying a smaller router with firewall feature and use authentication proxy?
I should mention that Cisco ACS and a AD/EDIR/LDAP directory is in place.
