    Re: Web Filtering

    The balance of comments seem to point to SmoothWall+DansGaurdian as the preferred Web Filtering tools for inappropriate material for minors.

    Does it work as well for shockwave games but without disabling much of bbc.co.uk/learning which has seems to have to gone swf mad.

    You can get a blacklist which has loads of blocked website which does a good job of blocking 'timewasting' sites. You can also pay to get a update every week/month.
    The filtering from Dansgauardian is hugely configurable and theres always a way to get sites through the filtering.

    The weighted keywords usually pick this up. You can block flash by mimetype and put *.bbc.co.uk in your whitelist though if you want to be sure.

    Re: Web Filtering

    Hi All,

    For those of you, like us, that have the ability of blocking sites at the root tld level please find below all those available net wide.

    We have taken the stance of blocking all except .com, .net, and .co.uk for language subjects we get the teachers to do a bit of research and once they have found sites to use and are vetted by us we then add them to the safe list that we have, so in essence for students they almost have a total block.

    Re: Web Filtering

    we only have a mandatory block on the .ru dpmain due to viruses/cracks etc.

    is this a discriminatory pactice?

    Re: Web Filtering

    Not that I am aware of, as far as I am concerned we are adopting a "Safe Use" policy in order to protect users and the school itself from any "Harm"

    this has been in place for over four months now and have not had any bad feedback over it from anyone including the SMT.

    Re: Web Filtering

    Does anyone know if it's possible to force google safe search through Symantec Web Security. I'm currently looking into changing our filtering software but at the moment this is provided free of charge, (county wide).

    We do have quite a few problems with the pupils turning safe search off.

    Also, I don't know if any of you have come across www crashmypc com before. Some of our little cherubs have just discovered it. It appears to freeze the pc, but after about 30 seconds to a minute a message saying, "You're a jerk", pops up and everything returns to normal. Just another site to add to your block list.

    Thanks,

    Lee

    Re: Web Filtering

    If you cant rewrite the URL which is what you need to do I used to have it set in the user profile and then ban google preferences etc. Its not ideal but stops most. This would also depend on what profile solution you use.
