    Web Filtering App


    I have a mate that runs a cyper cafe, at the moment he gives full unrestricted access to all but has found some people going on Porn sites and of course as it's a shop people/kids might see them do it.

    So he wants to lock it down. As he has an old shuttle pc i thought maybe a linux box between the router and network would be a simple solution.

    So i'm after a linux box that will allow gaming, and filter the web. But also report what people have been looking at (and in real time if poss) and also report on all protocols like p2p and stuff.

    Is there a program that will do that? like smoothwall? or ipcop? (names i remeber in the past)

    Cheers

    Neil

    Welcome to the forums!

    Take a look at the possibility of using OpenDNS for your nameservers. There's no software to install, but you can use it to block sites:

    OpenDNS > Features > Features Overview
