    Dansgaurdian Parental Controls Problem

    Last night,while researching on the net, I was denied access with a great big
    STOP
    I wondered what the problem was, but was too tired to figure it out. I ran into this again tonight. But,tonight , I could see the faint lettering on the stop sign said Dansguardian. I found "Configure ParentalControls", and I attempted to do so. I clicked on it and nothing happened....
    How can I turn off this annoying and bothersome Dansguardian?

    I am not sure why you would get the STOP sign. It is not default in Ubuntu CE or in the other dansguardian scripts that are part of the Ubuntu CE project. You can completely remove the dansguadian by doing the following.

    Code:
        apt-get --purge remove --assume-yes "dansguardian"
        apt-get --purge remove --assume-yes "tinyproxy"
        apt-get --purge remove --assume-yes "clamav"
        apt-get --purge remove --assume-yes "firehol"
        apt-get --purge remove --assume-yes "dansguardian-gui-ubuntu"
    I hope that will help.

    You will also need to unlock the firefox proxy settings using the script attached. Simply extract the file and then double click on the "unlock_proxy" file and choose run in terminal.

    Thanks, Jereme,

    My web browsing and research will be much more enjoyable without the STOP!

    Question Re: Dansgaurdian Parental Controls Problem

    I woulds also like to remove Dans guardian. I have followed the above instructions. I have also run iptables -L and iptables -F.

    I can ping google, download software using apt etc, i can use vnc.

    I have tried changing the proxy settings in firefox to 'direct connection to the internet' I just get a 'unable to connect - firefox can't establish a connection to the server' message.

    anyone out there help??

    thanks

    <edit> Ok i kind of fixed it by setting my browser to use an anonymous proxy from this list http://www.proxy4free.com/page1.html if anyone can help with a 'proper' fix it would still be appriciated..

    I have just released a script to disable/enable dansguardian in Ubuntu CE.
