    Internet Content Filtering


    Hello Guys,

    Do any of you guys know of a software that can be configured not to let things such as porn, game sites etc... so that it filters the content before it shows it on the client browser? thats easy to configure and isnt going to be like add one site and then add another website etc etc..

    Thanks

    Maybe it can be configured through iptables, but I'm not quite sure, especially not automatic... Maybe using firefox with adaware + some wildcards would do the trick?

    Privoxy is a web proxy with advanced filtering capabilities for protecting privacy, modifying web page content, managing cookies, controlling access, and removing ads, banners, pop-ups and other obnoxious Internet junk.
    Yeah, it looks like it can definetely do that.

    you can try http://dansguardian.org/

    There is a nice how-to on the smoothwall site about setting up Smoothwall/DG for content filtering and the like.

    for reference: http://community.smoothwall.org/foru...t=dansguardian
