    please help! im trying to keep my kids from using the Myspace instant messenger.

    is there any way to block the myspace instant messenger with tomato? i looked under the layer7 filters and is not listed, i tried adding im.myspace.com to the http requests but it doesnt block it, i also tried blocking some ports, but the instant messenger keeps trying different ports.

    any help will be apreciated

    check out www.opendns.com and then use it as your DNS. I use it along with DNS-O-Matic to replace my current ISP's DNS and it's filtering out content perfectly. Best of all it's free too. There are plenty of helpful resources on how to configure opendns and dns-o-matic using tomato on this forum or at the the opendns site. Good luck.
