    in Guardian/filtering/user defined
    make a new category of type "content security"
    probably need to add
    "http://(.+)\.bing\.(.+)"->"http://www.google.co.uk"

    that might overmatch a spot, but shouldn't be too bad. Not had chance to run it out, so let me know if you run into bother.

    Oh, you'll have to add it into a filter, and then apply that filter (if it isn't already applied).

    That it is, Dan, That it is.

    UTM does not have much in the way of software differences from any of the other Smoothie products.

    Err.. I read that to mean if they go to EduGeek - they get redirected TO the internal helpdesk.. not send the staff here

    Or do you mean sending the EduGeek Staff to your internal Helpdesk

    Correct if they go www.edugeek.net (.com etc) it goes to http://ICTHELPDESK instead. If were too good on here they won't need me

    I hate to revive such an old thread, but it sparked an idea I had a while back...

    Is is possible to redirect, but also include the original link

    for example.. user tries to visit http://www.sometaggedsite.com/somepage.php however it is intercepted and redirected to http://www.mysite.com/?link=http://w...m/somepage.php

    Possibly. I'd have to try it, youd need to use a \1 style reference - I doubt it TBH.
