Customer needs software to keep an eye on what his kids are doing on their PC's..to control what they can and can't look at on the web, access etc on his home network as the pc's are located around the house.

OK OK..well that was helpfull of you guys but not from him. Just got back having burnt him a CD with a selection of free downloads and trials only to discover that isn't what he wanted....so I set up user groups on his network so that his little darlings (aged from 4 to 22) cannot keep loading full games progs and promised to look for what he wants...which is.. to be able to see what his children can see on their pc's from his..at the click of a mouse. Just like that.

SO...as this is not something I have used before..any idea's people?

Cheers Gaz, I shall pass that on. He was (un?)reliably informed that PCanywhere can do this..for around £30. I said it was unlikely but would find out. I thought PC anywhere was a it like it says on the tin..access one's PC from any other station???

He is looking for a cheap (read : free) bit of software I think.

I have one pc with 3 users with separate user names.
All I am seeking is to filter/restrict Internet access to my kids so that illicit, offensive material can not be accessed.

Can any one recommend any software - free or otherwise?
