    Smoothwall Student Block List

    Hi all. My smoothwall student block list is not large enough. Ive done a search around and cant find any lists. Anyone willing to share theirs?

    Anyhone have a Wiki? If not could create and add to it. I am looking for a URL list to block for students.

    Also does anyone know how to block a country e.g. like .ru

    Cheers

    How are you implementing your blocklists? Are you making use of the Smoothwall default filtering categories at all as these are very comprehensive? In order to block .ru domains, please ensure that your block list contains the category 'Malware and Hacking' and that 'top phishing countries' is checked as this will protect you from a lot of suspicious domains. To block .ru specifically please add .ru to 'Domains and URL's' in a user defined category.

    Spoke to someone on the phone, there is a bug in the code making it pink - hence I thought syntax error. So I can block .rus etc.

    Now just seeing where to add the category to block lists.

    Another reason for my post though is I wanted to get a custom list from other schools of various foreign game sites etc which are sometimes not blocked by game sites.
