Parental control
« on: October 26, 2006, 07:08:21 am »
(I'm not sure if the firewall section is ok for my question ...?)

Hi there,

Having 2 children with a PC being connected to Internet, I would like to limit their access to only HTTP, and ONLY on specified website, having any other website automatically blocked.

I have 4 computers behind my pfSense, and only one needs to be limited for children.

Does anybody have advices for that purpose ? I guess I may use Squid, but I dont know how to do that. Maybe another solution would be to limit the computer's IP adress from the firewall, blocking everything but what I specify but I guess this is a complicated solution.

Our acl's are of a first match type.  Put a rule at the beginning that allows the restricted PC access to the website(s) needed (and to DNS possibly) and follow that up with a deny rule from that restricted PC to any.  The remaining policy will apply to the rest of your machines.
