    Hello,

    I've used SpywareBlaster for a long time, and I've always been very happy with it. It does a great job of stopping "blacklisted" sites, which contain harmful spyware or other content from being accessed inadvertently or otherwise.

    I'm currently setting up a network for a small business, and I'd like to know if there is anyway that this kind of protection can be implemented on the internet gateway server of the network. Rather that just a standard tcp-ip firewall, I'd like to be able to stop connections to bad sites, as Spyware Blaster does.

    Blocking banner ads, popups and malicious or unsecure html code, embeded in websites would be great too... But that's getting onto another topic...

    Hello drbuzz0....Welcome to Wilders,

    Since this is not a Spywareblaster issue....I have moved your thread here where it should receive better attention.

    Look at Unified Thread Management solutions: pfSense, Astaro, Endian, IPCop + Copfilter, Smoothwall, etc.
    They offer: antispam, IDS (Snort), antivirus (ClamAV +others), firewall, content filtering (Privoxy, Dansguardian), cache proxy (Squid), etc.
