Hey all,

So we're looking to protect a laptop from certain things, mainly pr0n / proxy / tasteless websites.

Question:
OpenDNS works great and blocks stuff automatically (Ive got the DHCP server telling the clients to use it), but it doesnt prevent the likes of Google Image search if you turn off SafeSearch.

NetNanny seems to prevent that, but it just prevents *all* of Google Images :(

Suggestions on blocking pr0n?

Make a gmail account under 18 and sign in?

Then you can't turn safe search off.....but its easy to sign out.....doh!

If you are using IE you can go into Internet Options / Content Tab / Content advisor, and set it to block a varying amount of subjects - it works most of the time, and can be password protected, that way if a site is blocked you can enter a password to over ride the settings.

Nah the kids using Firefox or Chrome ...

Safesquid looks interesting .. that + OpenDNS perhaps?

That said, whats to stop from using another search engine like Ask Jeeves or Live?

Block every other search engine other than google with openDNS then apply the safesquid thing?

Hi All,

I am a safesquid user, and thought I should tell you this -
Safesquid comes with keyword filtering rules for blocking p0rnographic websites. So when users search for p0rn content on a search engine, and the resulting page contains p0rn related material, the resulting page itself gets blocked. So it does not matter what search engine is used.

Hope this helps.

Cheers!

Hi slashsals, thanks for the input :)

Have looked into SteadyState, it'll block the browsers, but yeah ..

Will check parental controls in firefox, thanks :)
