Collax Improves Web Content Filtering

March 7, 2007; 08:00 AM
Collax improves web content filtering security from version 3.0.24 onwards by preventing surfing via IP addresses on Collax Business Servers. Previously not possible, now if a user enters an IP address, it is automatically changed to the domain name so the web content filter can check it and, if necessary, block the request.

Web content filtering allows unwanted websites to be recognized and blocked by certain saved keywords. This is only possible when the user activates such a web server via a URL; when an IP address is used instead, the security mechanism is not activated. Collax Business Server 3.0.24 recognizes when a user tries to activate a server by using an IP address and the server is automatically deleted in the Domain Name System (DNS) via Reverse-Lookup. In this way, becomes This name is then checked against the entries in filter lists.
