    The only way to get a firewall to do this without a proxy would be to create rules to block access to certain sites. The difficulty is that you'll have to do it by address - and many sites have multiple addresses. In addition, addresses can change.

    The best way to do it - in my opinion - is with a proxy and/or dansguardian. You can make it a "transparent proxy" or setup a proxy auto-config "PAC" file so that you don't have to change clients. OpenDNS is also great. I actually use all of the above - OpenDNS, Squid, Dansguardian and do it all transparent to the client…



  • Well said! Good explaination.
