    Webman, thanks for that clarification!

    SmoothWall are well and truly still alive - and we too block anonymous proxies on the fly, we were the first true dynamic filter, something we are justly proud of.

    I do not hide the fact that I work for SmoothWall - it's plain in my sig', yes, i'm biased, but i'd invite the sceptical to talk to our users, a number of whom frequent edugeek!

    Rory - hope you guys are at infosec, was good to chat with Bloxx folk last time!

    ...Well they don't do themselves any favours when their salespeople do stuff like that...

    I'm amazed after the 'Sophos incident' that companies treat Edugeek with such contempt...it's not going to get them more sales!

    apologies if I upset anyone and I was not slating Smoothwall, just don't come across them so I wrongly assumed they were not in existence anymore. I stand corrected, sorry

    My 2p would be SchoolGuardian, not the cheapest, not the most expensive but works well for us. Moved away from Censornet when they went to v4 as they removed the firewall side which is slightly important.
