New Iranian Pupil + Proxies
I have had reports that a new pupil is lookign at proxies to bypass our filtering (Smoothwall). I checked the log yesterday and he was on it alot looking at proxy sites which it looks like they have been blocked.
The scary thing is that he has visited lots of sites about Iranian proxies... ones that bypass the governments filtering which obviously are a little bit more advanced than usual.
How is our Smoothwall at looking at Persian text? Anyone had this before?
I noticed he was on alot of HTTPS sites after the proxies which may be that proxies he has been on so I have enabled the HTTPS filtering now.. pretty scary stuff.

Don't forget that a lot of sites are blocked in Iran. He's probably just doing here what they do at home to get to the Persian languauge versions of sites like the BBC, etc. You may find that the sites he is visiting are pretty innocuous.

Yeah, I thought that too... the ones I looked at were some singing so I hope its just harmless... will let pastoral have a word.

We aren't particularly string on persian filtering in terms of content rules due to an understanfable dearth of:
a) porn & gambling sites in persian
b) demand for filtering in that area
c) persian speaking blocklist analysts
However, if you'd like to send us a log export, we'd be happy to check over it and make sure nothing important is being missed.

Any we find even attempting to go on proxy bypass sites get their account blocked until they've seen the SLT responsible for ICT, seems to stop em :-)
