Just like all others I need to post 2 time
And here is number 2
Ok, so I'm sooo late to this party but ..... managed to get youtube.com/edu working with the header mod (thanks to mrbios's post), but I'm now stuck with the https problem where all of youtube is open. https appears to be needed to logon to approve the videos/playlists, so I don't think I can block https traffic to youtube's ip address range as it looks like it compromises the workings of the site (and logging on to google) .... we are running ISA 2006 and are with SWGfL - any suggestions ? Should we be looking at ditching ISA and going with another vendor such as Smoothwall? Is Edu working for other schools ?
Thanks in advance for any help ....
just make a new rule in the ISA firewall unblock those SSL URL but apply the rule to only staff users.
I have just updated my fortinet this week to FortiOS Version 5 and each filtering rule has its own Youtube extension option, so it looks like I can set the youtube for schools on the students policy, and leave staff on the normal access for youtube. Not sure yet how i'll manage the adding of vidoes to the 4schools section, but Im looking forward to testing this new functionality.
For anyone running Squid:
Squid Proxy and Youtube for Schools - Blogs - EduGeek.net
This Youtube For school is great for stoping people in schools accessing youtube, However there are ways to bypass this, Such as by logging into Google and then clicking on the Youtube Link which then allows you to access youtube, This still works even if you block youtube for students as it just bypasses the system ...
another request on it's way..

This looks really cool, but I am not sure exactly about the squid.conf thing.
I am running Endian Community 2.5.1, so it is running squid, and I got to the right file, and I think the right place, but I am not quite sure how to format the text there or even if it is meant to be on two lines. I haven't edited this file before. The other changes were no problem for me.
If possible, would you let me know if this is the right place (to your knowledge) and then do I just copy the 3 lines (including the comment) right there with just one space in between?
Thanks so much.
I have seen lots of people asking how to fix the https problem, but no one solving it except you.
I think this interferes with https:--accounts.youtube.com/accounts/SetSID?...
This affects my "manage this domain" button in Google Apps.
Adding allow lines above the block with accounts.youtube.com fixed it.
So the four lines together are:
acl accounts dstdomain accounts.youtube.com
http_access allow accounts CONNECT
acl youtube dstdomain .youtube.com
http_access deny youtube CONNECT
