unblock youtube for staff
Hi all ... anybody got any ideas on how we could unblock youtube for staff members only? our filtering is via swgfl and we can unilaterlly unblock sites but thats for everybody .... kids included
Networks vanilla 2003 locked down with the usual gpo settings
Cheers for now

You could implement a internal proxy we use dansguardian and squid here which the kids go though first. blocking all the sites that the teachers use that we don't want the kids on

The ideal scenario, is, of course to run your own filter - but this has a time/money cost.
Can SWGFL give you a different proxy address with changed settings, then you can GPO that to staff machines?

Do they need youtube or could they use TeacherTube.com

If you're with SWGfL you can setup the 'staff proxy' and allow staff access through a username and password

With embc we got them to setup a different filtering group for staff - so when they login to the embc portal they get different filtering levels - don't know whether swgfl can do same.
If you force all students through your own proxy you can slow down internet access if you are not careful as machines connect to multiple proxy servers at internet providers,

Have you still got the Dragon Flyer?

another +1 for smoothwall. Put staff in the "staff" group and allow access to that group.

We are also through SWGFL and were offered a smart cache by the LEA - did you not have such an offer?

SWGfL? Staff Proxy...
21st May 2009, 10:36 AM #14
I am reluctant to use the staff proxy due to the teachers leaving their computers on and unsupervised so that the children can access YouTube etc.
I have suggested keepvid.com so that they can download the clip they want
