RE: How to block Kazaa; NIS authentication



Yeah, personally I think it's a cool way of doing web content filtering,
better than rule based url matching and all that.

This reminds me of a site that tells people to modify their hosts and 
HOSTS files on linux/windows boxes for all the different 
cookie/advertising sites as well.  Blocking access to all the tracking 
and downloads for advertising.  Saves on bandwidth as well as speeds 
up browsing.

I haven't tried it yet.
