I'm going to configure a machine (486, running Win95) for intenet access and was asked to include limit access for kids.
Does anyone of a farily secure software to to this?.
I've heard of some names like Cyber Patrol, but have not tried any of them.
Will appreciate any help on this.
Season's Greetings !.

What is the Browser you are using ?. 1) Internet Explorer 2) Netscape Navigator
1) If you are using Internet explorer 3.0 or above go to 'View' - 'Options', Select the 'Security' Tab. Click on 'Enable Ratings', Give a password, re-enter the password for confirmation. Select the 'Ratings'  Tab , Now Select the appropriate 'Cateogory' and set the 'Rating' level for each category. Now Goto 'General' Tab where you have options for enablig users to see sites which have no rating. Select the choice's which you prefer.
After everything is set properly, Press 'OK' .

2)For Netscape Navigator there are no such options to 'Enable Ratings', In this case you have to download special softwares which are available such as
   www.cyberpatrol.com
   bess.net
   www.netnanny.com
   www.dai.net
   www.cyber-snoop.com
   www.timesup.com

Sureshmovva: the "Enable ratings" button is under "Content" tab, not in "Security".

Besides that, the way you suggest to block children access is too poor, provided that a curious kid can access Web world thru Outlook, ICQ, mIRC, Pirch and a lot more. Specialized software can take care of all that, not only at browser-level operations.

Thanks to both vikiing and suresh*.
I guess the points will go to vikiing, and this is kind of unfair for suresh*.
Thanks to both again.
Feliz Navidad !.

Viking, According to IE 3.0, The 'Enable Ratings' button is under 'Security' Tab. It has changed in IE 4.0. I had already read Ur suggestion, U had asked to download software whcih restricts access, So I suggested a different way, (i.e) That is through Browser.
Thanks for Ur suggestion.
