    Just FYI, I'm using IPCop with the AdvProxy and URLFilter addons, with integrated Windows authentication and users don't get the popup logon box, yet all usernames are still logged :-)

    Paul: I can't get to the censornet forum at the moment but I'm sure I read on there this morning about the dhcp daemon still running even when you have it set to disabled in the config.

    There was a post about either a fix or a workaround.

    Re: Censornet help.

    I posted about this a few posts up. If you dont know how to disable it in the startup files just log on as root and
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/dhcp stop

    To kill it permanently as posted by censornet support:

    Log into the command line as root and perform the following commands :-

    cd /etc/rc2.d
    rm S20dhcp

    Re: Censornet help.

    I had a small glitch, which I think was Censornet related, my machines instead of showing 192.168.0.1 for the DNS server on my clients, they had my ISPs DNS listed, and the only external connection was into the Censornet box, rather strange, if you repair the connection it goes back to normal and works fine, worked right until Censornet appeared, but seems to have stopped now, so I will monitor it.

    I take it that Censornet V4 is going to have integrated Windows / AD Authentication? Also, any timescale for it? I know the local primary has mentioned they are not too keen on logging on again (they wanted the XP machines to auto log on like they do on XP home now - YUCK!) but they have given over with that moan, but the Censornet is just pushing it a bit I think, but they are happy, they have saved over £250 on there previous solution (which stopped Sophos updating - yes, I have the joys of getting that to go through Censornet - any advice or is it simple??)

    Re: Censornet help.

    If you want transparent auth then you will have to go with a modded smoothie/IPCOP and find something to do the reporting options as well.
    I wouldnt hold your breath for V4 as I suspect it will be the end of the year when they release it properly.
    You can also turn of the authentication as well which maybe something that would be an option for a primary school maybe?
    To build a squid/DG box which will use AD groups for access etc isnt too hard either. My Linux skills arent too hot but I managed it in about 2 days of learning from scratch. But ofc you then need to sort something out for blocking computers and reporting.
    A smoothwall/IPCOP box with the advanced proxy and classroom extensions will give you all the stuff you desire currently apart from the reporting options.
    Im sure someone can suggest something you can put on for that though.
    If you do go with Censornet make sure you kill the DHCP server.

    Re: Censornet help.

    Looking at all these options in Censornet, am i right in thinking that you can have it so internet is off by default in a group of PC's , but still allow certain sites in at all times (such as office clip art, bytesize if i wanted)

    You can apply a whitelist but you can only do it by user. So generally the best my groups get organized is by year so I have to whitelist the whole year. It's a feature they are going to introduce in V4 hopefully.

    Re: Censornet help.

    Found a major flaw - Censornet doesn't permit a 2 character hostname for the Domain Controller - which mine has!

    4AM? Gosh! You must have been working on this all night on this one.

    Won't a CNAME do? Is there a BDC ...sorry peer DC with a longer name?

    2 character hostnames are a breech of RFCs. Minimum is 3.

    Re: Censornet help.

    Censornet forum says the opposite Geoff:

    "A two character server name in AD is perfectly valid so CN is at fault here."

    Is there no way to hack this change?

    Re: Censornet help.

    It might be valid in AD but that's not my point. It's not valid in DNS.
