    Internet monitoring software question

    Do any of you use this type of software?

    I am looking for a package that can monitor and limit access to some types of sites and also has a function that would allow me to set a time limit of other sites. Like if I wanted to limit one of my kids to an hour or 2 hours per day on a certain social networking site.

    Any suggestions on software or sites to search for this type of software would be greatly appreciated.

    Only thing that comes to mind is "Watchdog", but I don't think that it sets time limits.

    Hope that helps.

    I don’t know about software but in XP you could set up accounts for other users then set their access and I believe time limits also. Some browsers will have parental controls that will block inappropriate sites. Hope that helps some.

    Here is a link for Vista but she includes a link for XP also, this ladies site has a welth of info on computer topics.

    Being somewhat of a computer novice, is there an on line tutorial on how to set up accounts for other users?

    There is a product called Safe Eyes that is endorsed by Dave Ramsey. I have not used this one, but the last one he endorsed was great (Be safe Online).

    A lot of wireless routers have the ability to be set up to limit time. I think some of them can monitor content too. There is Watchdog, NetNanny and others A router is your best bet to limit time too. I think Windows Vista has that ability and I will find out what Ubuntu offers and get back to you.
