Good (free) internet filter.

3 Feb 2009

Currently have 6 computers either directly connected to a Buffalo router or via a swtich to the router. Previously had a BT hub thing which effectively filtered out porn, Facebook, Youtube and so on ,things I did not want the students to look at. When the BT Homehub died via a violent confrontation with an unknown assailant, we needed a router asap so got the Buffalo.

Now, from what I can see, there is no decent support for filtering via the router. There may well be something, but it is not obvious to me. What I need is a software filter to stop the guys and girls breaking terms in the place I am teaching.

I am not an IT whizz but I have a rough idea on what to do. Funding is a big issue as I need to get it resolved quickly and, well, going through the standard proceedures is a lengthy process and therefore out of the question.

Can anybody point me in the right direction?

Running WinXP by the way.
