    cannot get appstore through our proxy with lightspeed even tho it worked before. seems apple is telling our ipads to download apps from other devices in other schools inside the lancashire network even tho those ips are inaccessible.
    Going to make the guest network proxyless so people can get apps that way.

    It actually is a proxy. One of our students didn't get a filtering policy the other day and was using it to search "suck my $:%#" in Spanish.

    Anyone managed to get it setup so that a user can override the blocking ?
    I tried doing this Creating Overrides - Lightspeed Systems Rocket -Lightspeed's Support Wiki
    which got me to here

    Sorry, the requested site is not accessible.


    Please login to the web filter form more options. Login
    but when I tried to login just got this
    Please Login...


    There are no end user authentication sources defined.
    So much stuff is blocked so I need a method for teachers to easily unblock as its severely impacting teaching at the moment
    Nightmare having to do this across 6 schools!

    At a guess you would have to go to administration and add an authentication source of local database but I bet this would either break everything completely or mean everyone will have to log on with the username and password. Either way I probably wouldn't attempt it at this stage.

    Personally, I find the reporting a bit of a pain. Before you select the criteria for the report you want it has already started a default report, this means you can end up waiting hours for a report.

    Our reports are pretty fast at the moment, only taking a few seconds to compile.

    Another issue surfaced today
    At one school, the sec checks national lottery (something to do with PTFA or something) and its blocked under gambling and there doesn't seem to be any way of unblocking it that I can find Home | The National Lottery - home of Lotto, EuroMillions and Instant Wins

    Is this true?

    It doen't make a lot of sense since other lottery sites are not classed as gambling but my point is that surely in this day and age, a school should be able to unblock something like this on an admin only network.

    Has anyone else managed to get the 'Blocked Search Keywords' option working?

    There are currently 3 'lists' created, a staff one - assigned to the Admin network, a student one - assigned to the Curric network and a global one - assigned to Admin and Curric.

    I set the word 'carrot' (thought it was a more neutral word than 'porn' when testing) to be blocked in all 3 lists, but everyone can still search for carrot...

    Don't know if it's just something that I've missed...

    Just tried it on our student list and it works
    I created a new list with word carrot in it and then in rule sets-students - search engines - just below the main box - you have to tick to select the list you've created

    Hmm, I'm not sure why it's not working as I have all that set up?

    It's weird, it seems to work for students but not staff. I guess it's not so bad, but it would be handy for it to work across the board.
