    are you using the built-in real client? or have you got real installed on the machines already. if you are using the bbc's real client direct through their web pages we've found there is a problem with authenticated proxy access. what you have to do is to get people to open the bbc webpage in the real client, then when you get to the correct radio stream, then it will give you the authenticated access prompts so you can get out
    Using the built in real client as well as the real thing. Both make no difference and seems to ignore the authentication bits. The only way we have got it to work is using the firewall client, but that is ruled out completely for us. I have put it on the machines at a local primary to solve the problem and they are very happy with that solution, but they are not that big at some of the things teenagers want to do which dont seem to work without the client.

    I will give it another whurl tomorrow and see what happens as I have not tried it out for a few weeks though and you never know ISA 2004 SP2 may fix it, or the latest update to Websense

    Re: ISA 2004

    White lists are great aint they Disease, but keeping them up to date is annoying, for example the MSFT office site was on ours so all users can get clipart 24X7, the MSFT moved the image thumbnails to a different subsite that was a complete different address, so I had to read the source code to get the address, same with Reuters, BBC..... the list goes on.

    Ric,

    Can you provide some instruction on how to go about doing this. We got ISA Server 2004 and would like to enforce the safesearch but not completely ban google images.

    TIA,

    Ashok.

    Re: ISA 2004

    Off the top of my head, you simply need to set up a rule for Google (as you would for banned sites). Any time a Google site is requested, you need to append &safe=active onto the end or the URL.

    Cannot remember how to do this but I believe this is possible.

    Re: ISA 2004

    Right, "&strict=active" is certainly what we want as I've added it myself manually to the URL and it works. However I've no idea how to append some text to a URL request in ISA. I did a quick search in the microsoft.public.isa newsgroup and someone else asked the same question and got this reply:

    Code:
    "Ty R. Mote" <TyRMote@discussions.microsoft.com> wrote in message
    news:73B3EE3F-7E08-4876-90C4-EFB55C35ABBF@microsoft.com...
    > We want to append the string "&safe=strict" to all requests sent to
    > "images.google.com".
    > Is there a method for doing this in ISA?
    
    No.
    
    Do we need to script against the SDK?
    
    No.
    
    The "&safe=strict" has to:
        1. Be put there Client-side
            A. via entering it manually in the address bar
            B. the Link or "post Form" on the client-side has to include it.
        2. It has to actually mean something to the google.com servers since
    they are
        the only ones processing it. It doesn't mean anything nor is processed
    by
        anything else.

    But, I'm sure I saw a full explaination about how to do this recently. Very puzzled :?

    Re: ISA 2004

    Can you not simply redirect Google images, you can deny access to Google images, redirect requests to Google images safe? Does your local authority not block Google Images and just give you google safe searches?

    Re: ISA 2004

    Local authority uses Synetrix (formerly Equinox) and all the schools around here agree that it's filtering is rubbish.

    I'm not sure how I could redirect an image query to the safe site? Both queries are done through images.google.com (or .co.uk) they just have different strings appended to the end of them. If you can tell me how to do this then that would be great.
    Cheers.

    Re: ISA 2004

    After the elapse of a full year (and then some) did anyone work this out? I would also be interested if anyone knows how to block specific Google search strings too...
