Question Configuring content filtering at network level....


Hi to one and all,

I am very new to linux and I want to use content filtering at network level.

Example: I want to filter or atleast block a facebook page which have adult content without blocking the whole facebook site. I can block these sites at my wifi router but he will know that I have blocked these sites.

2. I want to filter youtube searches which show adult content even when you have safemode ON.

So ... I have a home network of 1 permanent windows notebook and 1 android phone.

I am using Opendns but I have a person who is watching adult content using facebook,google plus and youtube using a android phone. I cannot install content filter apps on his phone because he keeps his phone locked up with a password.

So I want to do content filter especially for the android phone before the internet traffic reaches his android phone.

Please can anyone tell me how to do it...

What's your Linux distribution? If Ubuntu, you can use dansguardian and tinyproxy as content filtering.

Unless facebook offers some tag then it may be difficult to block content only from a web site.

Just block it completely.

Might look at things too like running a virtual machine of a security appliance like untangle.

I have not yet installed linux OS but I am considering Mint OS. I was thinking whether dansguardian and tinyproxy will work on Mint OS correctly. IF there is a good os for dansguardian and tinyproxy/squid and the OS should be user friendly, Please let me know.

The other Idea I was thinking that whether I can install content filtering software like dansguardian in my router ? If yes, then how to install it.

I know about the access control and parental control of my router but that way i will completely block the whole websites.

Mint OS support dansguardian and tinyproxy. Using apt-get can install them.
