As kind of an example of how to do things in Linux/Ubuntu, goto and search for dansguardian. The first result
takes you to and there is a Support area
about half way down the page on the left, with Docs, FAQs, HowTos,
(those will answer your questions,) and Mailing lists. Since you are
using a security product, it would be wise to join the Announcements
List, (just in case there are new versions, or bug fixes,) and the
Support List. Anything that is not in the Docs/FAQs/HowTos can be
directed to the list-it has helpful people, that will respond
