    New Netsweeperer Filtering in Wirral

    So, is anyone else using the new netsweeper filtering that Wirral have made available recently ?

    Cause, if not the RM one gets switched off on Friday. So far, we have found it slow, which isn't good considering the RM one was pants too.

    It does have some decent reporing though, I can get daily/weekly/monthly reports emailed to me... oh, look the top 10 websites are:
    update.microsoft.com
    microsoftupdates.com
    <our home page>
    Google
    cps.qcaaps.co.uk

    ... really, well that's useful...

    Heh.

    Still, it gets better, yesterdays daily usage allowed (formatting whacked a bit):
    URI Host Total Pages
    tbn0.google.com 5393
    www.google.co.uk 1289
    mt2.google.com 1207
    mt0.google.com 1205
    mt3.google.com 1195
    mt1.google.com 1194
    update.microsoft.com 934
    en.wikipedia.org 741
    10.36.56.9 722
    images.google.co.uk 564
    Other 14410
    Total 28854

    Yeah, still great.. (the IP address is our internal proxy server).

    And the denied list:

    URI Host Total Pages
    goal.adbureau.net 226
    iacas.adbureau.net 55
    media.adrevolver.com 38
    pagead2.googlesyndication.com 34
    ads.adviva.net 27
    ad.uk.doubleclick.net 20
    lc2.bay0.hotmail.passport.com 19
    ad.yieldmanager.com 17
    www.google.co.uk 15
    ads.guardian.co.uk 14
    Other 203
    Total 668


    Which begs the question, why is www.google.co.uk allowed, yet www.google.co.uk is blocked....
