    Default Content Filtering

    I administer a small workgroup (10 users or so), and I need a WWW content filtering solution. The network is running Win2K Server in workgroup mode, and I have ISA Server. I need to know the easiest (most affordable) solution. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    The easiest, I believe, would be the built in features of IE itself. Of course, this isn't the most reliable and there is a way to easily remove the filter through the registry. Just check out the Internet Options in the Control panel and see how well it meets your needs. Hope this helps.

    SurfControl may be one option, from the guys that make CyberPatrol ( I used to use SurfWatch for this (since then, Cyberpatrol and SurfWatch have merged) and it didn't work too badly (although MS Proxy Server, which it piggybacked on, was a pain in the posterior).

    All content filtering programs are garbage, proxy is a major weakness of all of them, and Symantec's could be disabled by a monkey on's really easy...

    xobe is on a distinguished road

    If you are looking for a network content filter for your entire network, check out our service Xobe WebFilter. There is a free trial available so you can see if it meets your needs before buying. This service is DNS based, so it is easy to setup, very fast, and no extra hardware to buy. Unlimited users, so pricing is simple and affordable. More details on our website:

    This works great in a windows domain environment such as the one you describe, by using dns forwarding built into the windows dns server. This way your domain servers continue to handle local requests as required.
