I have been made aware recently that many software filters will not block
HTTPS Proxy sites. Does Vista have the ability to block such sites?

RE: Will Vista Parental Conrols block HTTPS Proxy sites?
Vista will block sites based upon rating or content - but cannot
automatically block some sites that aren't categorized. In this case it's a
simple matter to add the site to the "Blocked Sites" list in Parental
Controls.

Having 2 ****agers myself, I constantly screen my router traffic for
questionable sites that the kids may be visiting - then I either block them
in Vista or in the router. Vigilance is the watchword here - luckily Vista's
Parental Controls have a reminder to check the accounts periodically.

RE: Will Vista Parental Conrols block HTTPS Proxy sites?
I understand that there is a block list. That is similar to most other
internet filters but my question is whether it will block an HTTPS website
like https://proxy.org? The inability of most filters to block such sites
makes them useless.

Will Vista block https://proxy.org if it is added to the Parental Controls
block list?

Thanks.
