Child Safe, Logging and Workarounds

Hi All

 

I have a teenager here and he is quite tech savvy. Child safe has proved a very minor barrier to his porn surfing efforts as he has found a youtube post on how to bypass it by changing your DHCP to static and DNS to google 8.8.8.8.

 

Is there anything on the SuperHub 3 that allows logging of internet usage like other netgear routers?.    Can i ban access to googles DNS from my firewall?. Maybe thats an option.

Anyhow i would rather the web app solution provide the fix. Any ideas anyone?

I am literally at the point of installing a web proxy and setting it as the DHCP gateway for the little git!

Cheers

Julian

Looks like i cannot block google dns 8.8.8.8 due to the superb 3 firewalls restriction on blocking port 53. Arrrgh!.

Re: Child Safe, Logging and Workarounds

Anyone got any ideas on this,

 

If not im going to buy a WNDR3800v3 and install DDWRT as a LAN facing router to fix the issues with security on the SH3.

 

Cheers

Unlikely even your extreme measures will work IMHO. Its trivial to circumvent 99.9% of blocking. You could try an on device solution , might take a bit longer to work round.

Sitting down and talking about the subject and what YOU regard as appropriate material in conjunction with monitoring may be a better option than trying to maintain a blockade.
