    Re: Web Filtering

    uum, Censornet is free, but its giving me annoyances today so I have fallen out with it, but even when you look a a BLUD sub for it and even paying a few support charges with Adelix it still is cheaper by a long way than Websense or SurfControl! Its not as quick to do things as Websense is though so I prefer doing some things in that over CN, so the moral of the story is, uuuum, errrrr, just get someone else to do it

    When you say not as fast do you mean the configuration is long winded or do you mean the performance under normal daytime loads is not as good?

    I mean when modifying site blockings such as catagories. Websense is very very flexible where as CN is rather limited in what you can do with its filtering. Performance Websense needs a powerful machine to run it, remember as I say to all people, minimum specs are a MINIMUM not what you can get away with.

    Nope, not where I have been, it doesn't scare them at all, even when they are presented with a log of there personal browsing.
