I work for a K - 12 school.
In my opinion, we have some very fair rules and regulations regaurding
internet and computer use.
We use a Sonicwall firewall, 3060, I subscribe to content fltering,
which I love. It keeps out all the horrible junk that kids may
accidently come across (Or purposely) and it covers our rear.
Due to recent events, and some within the school, I have been ordered
to block myspace.com.
I have several other sites faculty and staff have asked me to block
within the content filtering section of my sonicwall admin page.
However, some students got smart, and searched google for proxy and
anonymous. Thousands of results come up, allowing them to type in any
website they like (including myspace) and surf around on it, bypassing
There is an option in sonicwall that says "Restrict Web Features::"
and I checked "Access to HTTP Proxy Servers" But I am still able to
get to sites via these proxy sites that shoulf be blocked...
Thanks in advance!
Interestingly, my problem is the opposite of you.
I have been trying for last three days and couldn't get any proxy
server to work on my box.
I have xpsp2, Firefox1.5.
There is your problem right there. If I have XPSP2
on my gateway box, I cannot connect to any of
the proxies, becuase of the Windows firewall. If
I use SP1, there is no problem. You might want
to see if you can get a hold of a version with
SP1, and see if that will do the trick. You will
just need a third-party firewall solution to protect
