    Help and advice on setting up cachepilot V4

    Hi gang,

    I'm in need of some help We took delivery of cachepilot V4 about 5 month ago and Its not been installed since the old NM left. I've been busy getting to know the network before I make any changes. The cachepilot been one of them and I've not installed one before I have put a couple of days aside to get it up and running.

    Now I had some problems this morning getting the stupid thing to work with the limited useless instruction manual, but now I've hit a snag. I need to setup white and black lists for staff and student groups. I'm not sure how to go about doing this and would appreciate some help. Does anyone have an easy guide?

    I am also wanting to implement active directory authentication, and a kind chap from the council emailed me the attached instruction manual on how to do this, but I'm already stuck with that. Can anyone make heads of tails on it and help me with that to.

    cheers

    cheers for that.

    right here is what I've done for students so far

    I've created 2 sitelists for students
    School blacklist 1
    School blacklist 2

    then I ticked a few boxes in the Block Global forbidden sites

    adult
    alcohol
    auction
    nudity
    chat
    discrim
    personals
    drugs
    porn
    schoolcheat
    gambling
    games
    sex
    gross
    illega
    swimsuit
    tobacco
    violence
    lingerie
    weapons

    Ive added a few band sites to school black list 1 and 2

    that done I then created a Group called 'Students' and set the following permissions

    Users belonging to this group have access to the following services -
    - email: Tick
    - web: Tick


    Web access rules
    These rules apply in order, so the first rule to match the time-band and site list will cause the specified action.

    Allow global permited sites - Always
    Block school black list 1 - Always
    Block school black list 1 - Always
    Block Global forbidden sites - always
    Allow all other sites

    I then created a user called liam and added him to the 'Students' Group.

    so I now do a test to see if facebook.com is banned and I get through to the site. So I decide to run a test on that url under 'Test Url Filtering and I get the following result.

    Filter results
    Starting filter check for user 'liam'

    URL: 'http://www.facebook.com'
    HOST: 'www.facebook.com'
    PATH: ''

    Check Special Circumstances: PASSED.
    Check User Limit: PASSED

    Apply global rules:
    - Apply rules for group 'Global rules'
    - Apply filter: global permitted sites (WHITE)
    - - Timeband: At all times.
    - - REGEXP-List: No Match. PASS
    - Apply filter: global forbidden sites (BLACK)
    - - Timeband: At all times.
    - - N2H2 query: N2H2 Query Fail.

    Final Decision was: ERROR
    Message: Could not interpret the host name.

    any ideas?
