Content Filtering


I have used Dansguardian and SquidGuard as content filters. They are somewhat limited to what you can do. Are there any other content filtering software that is more robust and granular that has corporate like features that can allow you to filter groups or just individual IP address or things of the sort?

The how to's are pretty shabby. I want to be able to control groups (subnets) or individual ip address.

yeah, just checked the DG FAQ and it says that although it has support for groups, it can't do subnets or IP ranges... that said, a quick work-around would be to run multiple instances of DG with different configurations (having each listen on a different port), and then route your IPs/subnets/ranges to the appropriate port... i know it's not exactly what you are looking for, but i just thought i'd mention this in case it's something you are willing to do while you wait for an answer... if you have enough RAM, the end effect for your users might be the same as if DG supported this natively...

Do you know of any other alternative to DANSGUARDIAN or SQUIDGAURD?

i guess that means running multiple instances isn't an option for you... okay...
