    This thread kind of outlines what I'd like to do:

    Is there any way to do it as an Access Restriction? And a step further... also redirect it to an address instead of an IP?

    For instance...
    My access restriction is already blocking a list of porn sites. Instead of the site simply not coming up (which is great btw), I'd like to redirect ALL those sites to a "safe" page on my local network, such as "http://servername:8012"

    No complaints, the service is doing exactly what I want it to. I'd just like to make a way for my kids to realize I've just banned a naughty site and they shouldn't be there rather than the site just simply not show up. :innocent:

    If this feature can't already be done, it'd certainly be a great feature to add (and probably not all that difficult to add without bloating).

    And while I'm on the idea of suggestions, it'd also be a great idea to have the ability to import/export individual access restrictions so I could share my porn list with other families.

    I've always been afraid to use an alternative firmware, but I've never been satisfied with the way I had to block porn with Linksys firmware as I felt the router should be the one doing this chore. And thanks to the recommendation in this month's MaximumPC, this is the first time I've used different firmware on my router (glad I have an older version lol). I'm exceptionally pleased with Tomato and will be making a donation. Thanks!

    I too would like to know how to do this, if it can be done.
