Projects / DansGuardian


DansGuardian is a Web content filtering proxy that uses Squid to do all the fetching. It filters using multiple methods including, but not limited to, phrase matching, file extension matching, MIME type matching, PICS filtering, and URL/domain blocking. It has the ability to switch off filtering by certain criteria including username, domain name, source IP, etc. The configurable logging produces a log in an easy to read format. It has the option to only log text-based pages, thus significantly reducing redundant information (such as every image on a page).

            The best I've seen
            Please do purchase it. It is a pity to notice that it has been
            downloaded lots of times, it is such a good product and it has
            been paid so little.

            It is ASTOUNDING!

            Forget about the rest.

            The best
            Dansguardian's whole-filter approach is much better than just using blacklists of URLs. It installed great at work on Mandrake.

            Great Product!!!!
            I've been looking for a while to find something that could provide internet filtering for my kids. I've finally found it. This product works right out of the box. Only one line to update in the config file. Alot more managable than squidGuard banlist files. Novell's Border Manager will cost a fortune and still require you to puchase a data base for content filtering, but no need here. All dynamic.

            Great Project
