    content filtering on linux/smoothwall

    im planning on installing smoothwall on an old box and making it a hardware firewall between my wireless router and my modem, no problems there.

    but i recently decided that id like to play around with content filtering (web sites) and what not. i guess im looking for a linux app and it's gotta be free. any suggestions?

    i just want something that would basically intercept www requests and if they are bad (whats bad can be set by administrator) it redirects to a not-found or a no-no page

    incoming content monitoring is secondary but that would be really cool. i would think it would be a lil harder though, so not a must and remember i have maybe 400 mhz and 128 mb ram tops, 5-10gb hard drive space. if required i could think about putting up another box and set smoothwall to forward to it? anyway, input would be great.
    if God was willing to live all out for us, why aren't we willing to live all out for Him? God bless,

    I believe "Dan's Guardian" will run on a Smoothwall.

    If your going to be messing about with smoothwall, then also look at ipcop.
    If I recall correctly... ipcop was a fork of smoothwall when smoothwall decided to have both corporate and express. the express verison is the home user version which excludes many features. ipcop has more features than smoothwall express and has a larger community developing addons for it.

    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    You may want to checkout IPCop. It does everything you are looking for and much more. I've been very pleased with it.
