Network and Intranet services

Univention Corporate Server (UCS) includes all the important functions for the operation and simple administration of computer networks.

DNS

The integrated DNS server in UCS allows quick, uncomplicated administration of the company network. The internal IP addresses of different servers and other network components can be easily transformed into easy-to-use names.

DHCP

The IP management of UCS is flexibly configurable and administrates even large networks reliably. New computers can be assigned an IP and a host name automatically. During the configuration you have the possibility of setting whether the IP addresses should be assigned dynamically or fixed. By specifying the media access control address (MAC) address, systems can be assigned to a fixed IP address, allowing you to exclude third-party systems.

Webproxy (Squid)

The web proxy solution available in the Univention App Center allows the use of a web cache for increasing the performance and controlling data traffic. This can be used to reduce the answering times for the users and the transfer volume via the Internet access.

In addition, it also makes the checking and administration of the access to Internet contents possible. For example, it can be specified which users or user groups can access which websites and which can’t. This is done using so-called blacklists and whitelists, on which the individual addresses are saved.
