NxFilter – DNS filtering server

I was looking for somethng to install on a friends system who was concerned on how to moderate access to URLs for their children. This tools is very simple to use and configure. I love to see the improvements to the product over time. It is a JAVA based product so make sure that you have the latest version installed. The web interface in intuitive for people to manage a stand-alone system or for sys-admins running it on a Server. Review details

I work at a school and the previous IT guy bought a very expensive filter that was not user friendly at all and had to be rebooted often because filtering would randomly stop working. I got tired of it and started researching and testing alternatives. After looking at various paid filters I came across NxFilter and decided to give it a go. It is very easy to set up and get running. Within 30 minutes or so I had it running on two machines in clustered mode. After testing it for a week with no issues, I deployed it on our network. Ever since then it’s been running great and handling hundreds of thousands of requests without a sweat. Review details

Works great to control and monitor internet access. We use it at a school, the staff have content filtered access and the students have restricted access. You can restrict by the machine or by the IP address range. Very versatile. Very easy to setup. Fast support. It is enterprise level technology available for free! We use IP filtering and no one needs to log-in to get internet access. Makes it simple and invisible to the end users. Review details
