I have just had a pc in a classroom (just like the rest in the classroom and from the same image), Start allowing anyone anywhere on the internet!
Doesnt matter who logs on youtube etc is available.
If the same person logs onto another machine you tube is blocked(talking about pupils here).
So its somehting to do with the machine. But what?
Virus? comes up clean.
We copy the pupil profile on the machines as the default profile so that if it doesnt pull it down from the server, they still get the pupil profile. I have re done that.
no other proxies are entered in IE.
So any ideas?

How do you filter the internet? Maybe someone has accidently set a different permission for that specific machine?

Odd, as the whole point of Smoothwall (or any similar system) is that it sits between client machines and the Internet, nothing can get to the Internet without going through Smoothwall. If checking the filter-by-IP-address settings on Smoothwall doesn't help, maybe someone has installed some kind of as-yet-unknown proxy utility on the client - time to reimage the machine?
