    Fulvio suspects this would be hard to implement via Zeroshell and suggested I post here to see if anyone knows of any way/device that isn’t expensive in order to help with this problem. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    I have an old device that relies on originating mac/ip to function. I need to route around this old device transparently based on layer7 inspection. So, some traffic will be routed to another path out of the network based on a regex of the URL and the rest will continue out to the old device. Using a layer2 transparent proxy seems like it might work.

    I also need to log all layer7 traffic (by mac address) that passes through that transparent proxy so I can get byte usage in/out by mac address and URL.

    Two network paths:

    Client(browser device)->zeroshell (no match on URL regex)->old network device with same client originating mac address and ip->internet

    client(browser device)->zeroshell (match on URL regex)->different network device with same client originating mac address and ip->internet

    Thank you in advance to all respondents.
