    Cheers, will do for us in the department as they have a somewhat-automated chrome extension too.

    @SimpleSi Sounds good. I followed your instructions to the tee and I also got the same instructions off someone else who has got it working and all settings seems correct, but it just doesn't work!

    If you can PM me your number that would be dandy!

    Goto Dashboard - Administration and then Add Authentication Source
    stick email in all boxes (or anything you want) but put in outlook.lancsngfl.ac.uk for mail server and tick the encrypt and end user use.

    Goto Webfile - Override Users and create a new list called web, description web
    Edit it and Add User
    Search for web - click on it - change Name to web@school.lancs.sch.uk
    Enter web as description


    Goto WebFilter and Policy Management - Rule Sets - Students
    Scroll to Access page
    Select Require Username and select Restrict username as well and select web for username access


    Then make sure all the overrides boxes are ticked for every category you want staff to be able to override and that web is selected

    And I think that does it
    I've got it working so if it doesn't work for you then its probably my instructions

    Right, what I did was very similar to this... except you don't need to create a new e-mail address.

    Go to Dashboard, administration. Under Authentication click on local users, scroll down and check the box available to end users. Save.
    Scroll down to local users. Click Add Local User. I called mine web.

    Then go to Web Filter, override users, create a new list and call it Web. Then add user, select local users from the drop down, search for and add web to the list.

    Then to set which rule sets you allow override on, it's Web Filter, Policy Management, Rule Sets, Students. Click override on the categories you want to override on. FYI - youtube is classed as 'adult'.

    Et voila. When you get to the blocked page, just type in web and the password you set and away you go!

    I can't thank @SimpleSi enough, because without his instructions I wouldn't have figured it out!

    Hi Guys I am visiting a school today where they aren't happy with the Lightspeed facility as it is blocking most pages they use on a regular basis. They are wanting to go back to the old setup using their CLEO box as a proxy.1. This is new to me Lightspeed so I have just had a good read through this thread and found out quite a bit now already.2. How do we revert them knowing nothing on the server 2012 was changed and lightspeed has just kicked in.Any help appreciated.

    you need to log onto the rocket console which is https://filter.education.btlsl.co.uk/login using the itcoord e-mail address and password. Then go to web filter, URL patterns, Student IP range, then unblock all the websites they need. Lightspeed is way better than what they had before because of the ability to control your own filtering. Once they see this they will understand it's better and stick with it

    Shame people will often be unhappy with a product because of the way it's managed/configured rather than the product itslelf!
