Onspeed overrides Norton Parental Control

  Dallow 11:29 20 May 2004

Have been using Onspeed for some weeks and generally it speeds things up quite well.
However my 11 year old daughter was on the web with her friend and they accidentally came across some porn pop up windows.
I run Norton Internet Security 2002 (updated frequently) and have all the necessary parental control options activated which should have prevented access to inappropriate web sites.
It was only after some experimentation that I discovered Onspeed to be involved.
Onspeed apparently uses its own server to filter and speed up pages but also has the ability to override the NIS Parental Control.
Having contacted Onspeed they have yet to find a solution to this, so all I can do is disable Onspeed when my daughter is online.
Not exactly ideal.
Any ideas as a workaround?

Get Broadband if in your area. Ask onspeed for your 24 quid back.

Unfortunately I opted for NTL cable TV & phone and they have mickey mouse equipment which means I can't get broadband in my area.

What a flaw that is in a norton product.

Norton should be alerted to this as soon as possible to fix it up.

I can think of many free public proxies that your childeren could use to bypass Norton without onspeed.

It needs patching not by onspeed but by Norton. Nortons software should filter ALL connections.
