I use NetNanny on my sons' system.  Of course, if you want to install a
new server, you can't beat the free Linux-based Squid proxy server.
Management is a breeze with Webmin installed.

Subject: Family protection - proxy?

I am looking for advice on how I can best protect my family from the
'horrors' on the Internet.
We have a small ADSL/wireless network at home (with a firewall and AV on
all systems) on which my kids have their PCs/Macs. My wife and I use it
via our laptops.

What is the best way of stopping access to porn/violence/etc.?

I was looking at setting up a system with a proxy. Or maybe paying for
some sort of service?
I don't really want to have to install a package on every system
(expensive and unmanageable)
Any other suggestions gratefully considered

Paul
