    We're finding the kids are typing the ip addresses of websites into IE as Websense only has the website name as an entry. PITA.

    Hi skell,

    It sounds like you aren't using HTTPS interception? If that isn't turned on then Guardian can't do its "clever stuff" to dynamically block this little critter.

    Anyhow, it's now in the blocklists for those who aren't inspecting secure traffic.

    Hello nile!

    I was advised to turn this off due to possible interference with Skype connections. It's not a problem, I blocked it manually anyway.

    Thanks, and apologies!

    Haha, no worries. Skype is a bit of a pig in that respect, I'll have a good think what we can do about it!

    Hmm.. Any Firewall that can block this site? Kids find it easy to use it, and it suffers our bandwidth.

    We can block that one and most like it - though you need to be prepared to make some changes to how you handle HTTPS traffic perhaps to get full benefit.
