    Anyone use a good one? I tried CYBERsitter and it was nice other than the fact that it blocked almost all network traffic that isn't email or internet traffic. I need something that JUST blocks internet traffic and doesn't make me build a database of porn sites to block.

    I use DansGuardian on top of the IPCop firewall.

    I have been playing with an ipcop box at the house, it is pretty easy to setup with the content filter?

    The Network that I am responsible for uses the CF that is built into our hardware firewall.


    It is accurate, inexpensive (for a commercial application) $179.00 a year/subscription. Best of all it auto updates its own definitions, is configurable to allow or disallow sites, and has a reporting feature to let me know what computers are attempting to access denied sites.

    It might be a bit costly for a home.

    Very easy. You install IPCop, then install the Add-Ons server, then install Cop+ on top of that.

    It even has a nice configuarion utility in the web GUI.
