Surftool - New Package to turn squidguard groups(/acls) on or off
Manage your squidguard groups/acls. This tool was made for schools. You can set every group very easily to one of five modes. The modes on/off/only/on plus and adminfree are available. This works also with other “target categories” from shalla or own “target categories”.
We made for every classroom a acl. And set for every classroom specific acls (block porn and so on). With this tool you can modify very easily the "Default access [all]" entry. Go to the surftool and click on the bottom of the classroom. This tool is simple and teacher proof ;-).
The surf tool consists of two modules.
- The Web GUI reads the squidguard.conf file an writes the user commands to a separate file
- The “surftooldeamon” looks every x seconds for new command files and activates the changes
I built this tool for our school. Because others solutions are too expensive for us. I think others school have this problem to. So I decide to build a pfsense packages and hope that this will added to the pfsense packages.
