    Timed Deny Lists

    This is my first post here :-)

    Basically we're having a room that kids can use for going on what they want, games, facebook, etc... but we only have one proxy server.

    We're getting an unfiltered internet connection hopefully from the LA and were hoping to install a second proxy server, but, we only want the internet to be unrestricted at certain times. Has anyone got any information that could be of help? We haven't got a clue when it comes to timing two lists to effectively swap over at certain times of the day...

    Do you have any kind of local proxy at the moment? If so what are you using?

    I take it you'll have two seperate upstream ports when everything is done, one filtered and one unfiltered?

    Obvious point as well, but is this link going to be completely unfiltered? Ofsted and safeguarding might have a lot to say about that, as might parents when children are downloading pornography.....

    You are going to allow children uncensored access to the Internet at certain points of the day?

    Are you mad?

    Yes, we're going to allow kids a reasonably unrestricted Internet access at certain points in the day, Facebook, Myspace, games, etc.

    It's for one room in school only and will be controlled to a certain degree but the majority of the internet will be unrestricted.

    We currently have one proxy server and one filter from the LA, our proxy server is running RedHat, Linux. We're intending to install a second proxy server that will use a seperate, unrestricted filter from the LA that will allow Facebook, Myspace, Youtube, and pretty much anything else other than the obvious block lists. But the room will be used for lessons at certain times of the day so we need the allow/deny lists to change at certain periods of time.
