    School Guardian - YouTube

    Hi - We are running Smoothwall School Guardian at our school. I would like staff to be allowed to access YouTube, but I would like to block students from accessing it. Is there a way that I can do this in School Guardian?

    cheers

    Eddie

    Eddie,

    Yes - that should not pose a problem. Assuming you have staff and students in different groups, block video in the default AUP, and then create a small whitelist with youtube domains in it that you can apply to the staff group.

    Let me know if you need any more detail.

    Cheers for the reply Tom

    We deleted the default AUP when we installed the system as we found it a bit to restrictive. The filters that we have got set up are as follows:

    Reduce overblocking
    windows updates
    custom allowed content
    all staff
    all students
    custom blocked content
    recomended security rules
    file security
    everything

    Is there still a way of doing this within these filters?
