Re: Content Filtering

Very nice for a one time low cost and a server. Any downsides??

Yes, you have to install it one every single Windows machine, works with windows only (no OS-X, Linux, Android, iPhone, etc.)

@Brano, you must not have read their site - it's a Windows service that installs on 1 Windows server in your environment - then any client (regardless of OS) can benefit from the filtering. You simply hand out that server's IP as the default DNS server.

@Anav, I've been using it for a few years, it does what I want and doesn't cost allot. Took me awhile to get a hang of white-listing a site, for example you want to allow youtube.com but you also need to whitelist ytimg.com and youtube-nocookie.com, some sites are like that where they need more than 1 domain to work, often a CDN/partner.
