    Thumbs down RM Safetynet blocking Google

    As of this morning, we cannot get into google!

    We can access images.google.co.uk and maps.google.co.uk but www .google .co.uk is blocked by the pornography filter. Nice work RM - NOT

    We don't have the facility to manualy whitelist it.... grrr!

    Yes, I know other products are better, but I didn't choose it and it's what I have to work with.

    Don't you have a username and password for safetynet? You should have one.

    we go to https://admin.safetynet.rmplc.co.uk to create permit rules.

    Are you sure?
    It may be different depending on LA's, but it's definately not a chargable option here in Cornwall / SWGfL (maybe Cornwall LA absorb the cost for us).
    Might be worth double checking with your GfL though?

    EDIT - That was badly worded. I believe that it is one of the features incorporated in to the lease/rental we we pay the LA each year for Broadband provision etc, not an additional chargable feature.

    I spoke to RM this morning about it. It's bundled as a part of our broadband and without paying more, we can't have it.

    Also we are an independent school so KCC deals don't help.
