Implementing internet security for blocking the net!

At the moment there is a huge debate in Australian about blocking certain sites on the Internet.

While this seems like a good idea for the average computer user it will not have any effect on the element who access these sites. The reason is that it is only effective on those who do not know how to get around it.

I am all for getting rid of the outer fringe pornography such as bestiality, child porno etc but surley a better system would be to enable households and enterprise to control this themselves. Letting a governments have private unscrutinized lists will only lead to possible political infractions in the future.

What can you do?

One way you can do something is to go to a site called Open DNS and apply its filtering system to your router which will then block any content that you don’t want over your network.

This system will also speedup your Internet Surfing. I prefer to use the router set up as it covers the any computer using our Internet connection.  Click here for instructions

While it is not a perfect system it has been working well in our business and homes.

Go to Open DNS and set up.
