DansGuardian Vs commercial products
A primary school that I look after is looking to move away from their current ISP, so in order to give them more options and potentially save money I was considering doing the web filtering on site.
I've just set up a Ubuntu server running squid/DansGuardian as a test, and had a look at URLBlacklist.com, which seems to offer a very cheap way of keeping your blacklist up to date. So far, the set up is worrking fine, so I was wondering what advantages there would be in using a commercial product? Obviously support would be one feature, but as I'm happy to do this myself, I'm not sure what advantage there would be in paying £1000s per annum apart from having someone else to blame if something bad gets through!
Any thoughts gratefully received...
