  • Blocking Web Sites

    Hey Guys, Need Help!

    I need to block sites such as, Myspace, Facebook, etc.

    The server is SBS 2003 with SP2, its not a ISA server? and the router is pretty simple.

    Is there a way to be able to block these sites through AD or DNS

    Attached is a screen shot of the router ip filtering. Ive reverted myspace address' to ip's and entered them into the destination area with port range 80-80 but it only blocks the website if i put the ip address in the browser. I need this to work when the address is entered.

    Thanks, Dave.

    ISA is included with SBS2003. All you need to do is install and activate that component.

          No probs.

          Ganador:
          You can block by DNS but it isn't that reliable. Just create new zones for facebook.com for example this means they won't resolve. It is fairly easy to get around though.

          Websense is an option but you will have to pay. ISA also if you have it like Stonelaughter says.

            there are free proxy servers available also.

            but the simplest way is to either create zones for the blocked domains in the DNS of the domain, or use the local hosts files

              Add your WAN netwok IP to www.opendns.com -- free!

              add their DNS IPs to your DNS forwarders and setup categories and pages you want to block .. give it to it around 20 minutes to update .. and you are good to go .. Free Content filter

                Sorry no help to the OP... But DAMN! that looks almost too good to be true. I'll have to try it out.

                  It still has the flaw of the local DNS records though. Servers are still accessible by their IP address.
                  Something like websense or a free proxy like DYasny recommended is going to be the better route.
