Re: [K12OSN] Filtering OT

This is kind of a lame way to do this but is highly effective. . .

Assuming that you are running LTSP and etc. . .

Edit /etc/hosts and add lines like:  www.proxify.com proxify.com

If your server is set up correctly, the first place the terminals will look is the /etc/hosts file.

Once it finds the site, it is satisfied.  Since it points to the localhost, you will see the main page of whatever site you have running on that host.
If you have a separate server that has a "denied access" page on it, you can give that IP address and the user will get that page instead. . .

Works for me. . . takes a bit of time adding the denied sites, but it is highly effective from terminals.
