    I currently have HyperWRT with Thibor 14 on my WRT54G and I use IPFILTERing to block certain sites from my 12-year old grandson and his aunt. Is there a way to use IPFILTER to block newsgroups by name the way I block TCP via URL keywords?

    A sample line from my firewall script:

    iptables -I FORWARD -o vlan1 -p tcp -m tcp -m webstr --url "mysite.com" -j REJECT --reject-with tcp-reset

    I've never had a problem with him, just preventative... they would never know the site is blocked (just looks like the site is down).

    I also have remote access enabled so I can free up certain lines remotely if he has homework to do or something and I use the internet access blocking by time/date ranges as well.
