Blocking porn sites



  • I have been experimenting with pfsense and squidGuard regarding blocking porn sites.
    Everything working including blocking https porn sites when I use a proxy and SSL MITM as described in many posts.

    My questions now is what method would be best for me if my conditions are as followed:
    pfSense will act as a router and firewall for a public network in a sports arena. Journalist will be using it the way they would normaly but ofcourse on a separated VLAN, guest should be able too use it freely on a separated VLAN as well but with limited speed per user etc etc.
    I want to filter the network doe so porn should be blocked. Using a proxy will not work since i cant install the certificate on all the clients. And using squidGuard without it will not block https sites.
    I will need to use some kind of list for the sites to be blocked since i cant maintain one my self.

    Should i use openDNS and its filtering abilities or how should you have solved this?



  • opendns is probably the most accessible way to block porn sites, but not all porn sites are blocked, only the popular ones.

    pfblocker can also do the same thing, but in my experience, blocking domains with pfblocker is hit or miss, its really funny that blocking mysitehere.com doesnt block the www.mysitehere.com, back then I ended up adding two lines in each domain just to make it effective.

    jahasfilter is probably the easiest way to block porn and other category, just a tick of the box, its blocked. and the domain repository is well updated from time to time.

    It's not funny, it's normal. mysitehere.com is not the same as www.mysitehere.com. You get different things from ftp.mysitehere.com than www.mysitehere.com.
