Looking for a good web content filter

Mon May 27, 2019 5:50 pm

Hello to the Mikrotik forum!
My name is Cosimo and I actually work as system administrator in a public school.
I love my work, but I've got some trouble with students that are always trying to access forbidden content (like facebook and xxx sites) from
the computers of the school's labs.
I'd like to know if you can suggest to me some effective web content filtering system.
Since I have to manage over 100 hosts, installing something like a blacklist client that works at layer 7 is not ideal.
Something that filter via dns, maybe?
Do you know something similar, or a system that have you tried?
Thank you for your help!

Hello Cosimo,
you can go through this MUM presentation & try out any of the options in there. I am sure you will see the option that will serve your intended purpose.

Regards,
I enjoy building broadband network with @Mikrotik

I use at home a raspberry pi device running pi-hole.
You have the option to whitelist or blacklist sites, etc.
