Question Block URLS/websites or Allow only Specific Sites in a Slack


Hi Tux-Friends...
I am try to block usage of Porn and social n/w sites during work. I am the jr. system admin. I need help and advice regarding this.

Firewall
==> How to block a specific set of URLS/websites
==> how to allow only a set of 5-10 websites

Eg:
I need to block the usage of porn________________.com.
but allow worksite.com.


Is there any software available for this purpose?
If yes can i control and customize a page to display instead of the blocked site?



Can this be implemented in Windows?

Any suggestions welcome..

I wrote an article once that might apply to your situation: http://alien.slackbook.org/dokuwiki/...lackware:proxy .
The filtering software used there is Dansguardian. You implement the content filter/proxy on a Linux server and it will block unwanted URLs for any client, which can be Linux, Windows or other OSes.

+1 for DansGuardian

I installed it (originally based on AlienBob's article) a few times.
You can configure groups in it, like "Children", "Young Adults", "Adults" or other levels of access, each with its own filter.

You can do a mixture of blacklists (all that is forbidden), whitelists (all that is allowed), and it can "read the page" before passing it, checking for unwanted / prohibited phrases.
It is especially popular in school networks etc.
