Hi ,


Does anybody know on which technology the vista parental control web filtering is working on? on ICRA?
has it the same quality like symantec internet security ?

Also i want to setup a Server for my family which runs vista with enabled webfiltering. Then i share the server's internet connection so that other computers in the network can use the internet through that server.
If the vista webfiltering on the server is enabled, do the dependent clients have also filtered access by default?

Thks

All this depends on how you set Vista on the server. For example, if you have parental controls running on the server that apply to all systems - then there's no need for them on the individual systems (it'll just increase the overhead).

On the other hand, if you'd like to let each machine have individual settings - you can do that in parental controls on each system - or by using the tools on the server.

I have no experience with using Vista on a server so I can't be of any help there. I'd suspect that it has something to do with the settings in Group Policy - but beyond that I'm lost.

For domain configuration:

From http://209.34.241.68/david_bennett/default.aspx

To edit the group policy settings you go into the control panel and into the Administrative Tools section to the 'Edit Group Policy' control panel. This will require elevation and you need to be elevated to do this. Inside the Group Policy Object Editor, you go to Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Windows Components/Parental Controls. Inside this section there is a group policy option called 'Make Parental Controls control panel visible on a Domain'. Enable this option and you will be able to get the Windows Parental Controls control panel and turn on parental controls for users on the machine.
