    URL Filter

    Wonder if anyone can help me with this.. I've been using URL filter for quite some time to block students access to social networking sites- However, I've never been able to get it to link to a 'stop page' that's hosted on the network.
    Currently it goes to a page on our website; Which isn't too much of a problem.

    However, I want to start using ActiveX command to print the username and workstation that the student is at- Just to kind of show that we know who and where they are sort of thing. As it seems some of the teachers seem to not be too bothered about the pupils not doing their work and visiting potential harmful websites.

    Anyone here now why IPCop won't point to an internal stop page? Or does anyone know how I can make my ActiveX Objects work?

    Below is the code i'm using
    Code:
    <script language="JScript">
    	var WshNetwork = new ActiveXObject( "WScript.Network" );
    	document.write( "Current User: " + WshNetwork.username + "
     Current workstation: " + WshNetwork.ComputerName  + "");
    </script>

    Re: URL Filter

    I'd try the local block page on IPCop, it works for us OK. What are your settings for this? Also make sure clients have access to the "Access Denied" page, eg. http://10.0.0.1:81/redirect.cgi.

    This file is located in /home/httpd/html/.

    Ah yes! I forgot about the preset URLFilter page! I suppose i could hunt that down and edit it!

    The only reason i want to edit it is to make it fit in with everything else- Could be good if the students didn't know which proxy they were going through aswell... Some of the more clever ones might start looking on the web for ways around it
    Thank you webman

    No problem - just make a backup copy of it and edit away...
