I use DansGuardian (content filtering)and squid(proxy server, squid can be
difficult to configure so Tiny Proxy is an easier alternative). DansGuardian
is very robust as it can be configured in many different ways. As always,
these are FOSS. Both items can reside on Edubuntu server.

Subject: Recommendations for filtering?

I just received a call from the school principal because a student ended up
on a graphic porn site after a poorly formed google search.
I need to provide some sort of internet filtering as soon as possible, or
the children will be barred from the computer room permanently.

I have seen several recommendations in the past.  I am looking for something
easily implemented, and low maintenance.  I am not concerned about "false
positives", so the solution does not have to be finely tuned.

Thanks in advance,
