    Hello,

    I am a newbie over here. I am planning to subscribe Safesquid-Content Filtering Internet Proxy Server for my enterprise. Have any one of you use this software before? Any feedback will be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    David

    I don't know Safesquid, but I do use Squidguard, a Squid add-on, on my linux system. Safesquid, as I can see, can be used either as a squid add-on or as a squid replacement. I can't see the implications of safeaquid as a squid replacement, you'll have to judge that for yourself.

    In my opinion one of the most important aspects of these tools is the blacklist they are based on. safesquid uses urlblacklist.com. Squidguard uses it's own blacklist and can be configured to use urlblacklist.
    This urlblacklist is a commercial service. Squidguard is a community driven effort (so, free).

    I don't know what server you plan to use it on. There are a few dedicated linux distribution that offer this function. Censornet (.com) seems to fullfill most of the requirements for schools. There are (commercial) add-ons for image recognition and blacklists.

    hi,
    What's the matter, you've posted the same question all over the web?
    Your boss asked you to install this software, or what?
    If you can't do it yourself, get those guys to help you at http://www.safesquid.com/forum
    The software's great, but PAM authentication's not well documented on http://www.safesquid.com their home-site.
