    Privoxy


    Hi Guys has anyone here managed to get privoxy working?

    All I want is to be able to add URL?s that are inaccessible to the local system. Basically I want to stop my SON from accessing certain website or offensive material. Is there something like a simple firewall that allows me to add URLs to its config file?
