Internet Filtering. Web Sites
CyberSieve comes with a huge embedded (built-in) database of undesirable sites that are
classified into 15 categories.
Select the categories you consider unacceptable for use by members of your family by clicking on
the "Built-in database" button.
To disable the Built-in database, select corresponding groups you do not want to control and unmark the
"Enable Built-in database" checkbox. To enable the Built-in database again, use the same checkbox.
To prevent a Web Site in the built-in database from being blocked by CyberSieve, or one that is being blocked due to an inappropriate word, use the Trusted Web Sites List.
You can switch on the "Only these web sites are allowed" checkbox. In this case you are able to visit only web sites from the Trusted Web Sites List. All other web sites will be blocked.
Please add all concomitant web sites to the Trusted Web Sites List or switch on the "Do not block the concomitant links" checkbox.
If you discover some Web Site with unacceptable content that is not included in CyberSieve's built-in database,
and you would like to block access to this Web Site, use the Blocked Web Sites List.
If you want to set some particular rules for access to some web sites, which are different from the common rules, then you should go to the Special Web Sites List and define the rules there.
Websites from this list have their own Timetable (Special Internet Timetable) and Time Limits.
The settings that were made on the common Timetable (Common Internet Timetable) and Time Limits windows do not affect access to these sites.
CyberSieve also provides verification by template. You can enter some word that may be part of the web site's URL,
and CyberSieve will block access to this resource, as if it belongs to the "Blocked Web Sites List".
To fill in the template list use the "Web Sites Patterns".
All Web Sites in the Trusted, Blocked and Special Web Sites lists affect only the group that was selected for adding or editing. In other words, these lists are group-dependent. To add a Web Site affecting all users, select "All Users" while adding or editing.
When you open any of these lists, you can see Web Sites for the selected group of users only. Web Sites affecting all groups will be displayed at the end of the list. Mark the "Hide All Users" checkbox if you don't want to see Web Sites affecting all groups.
Use "Add", "Edit" and "Delete" buttons located on the bottom of the window
to edit the list.
To enter a web site's name you can use either the absolute name, like www.msn.com, or the template,
like *.msn.com , where the "*" symbol replaces any literal sequence.
Every time a web site is filtered the CyberSieve icon of the system tray near the clock changes its color to red.
You can see the whole list of blocked URLs in the "Log Files" chapter.
