Filtering Ports

AAISP don't block any ports on the Internet services we provide, we do suggest that customers use FireWalls to protect their networks.

Network Cache

AAISP don't run any http proxies or caches.

Filtering Web Pages

We support the IWFs efforts to take down websites at source.

There is lots of software and hardware solutions available for people to filter their web browsing from their side of the network - eg hardware firewalls or proxies with content filters, or software installed on individual computers, or even using third-party services. Below are some suggestions. (These are only linked for your information, we cannot endorse these products/services, and cannot vouch for their quality or effectiveness)

Here are some suggestions for filtering web pages on your own network:

  • A good starting point is the Wikipedia Internet Safety page
  • OpenDNS have a parental control service
  • Dans Guardian is a content filter server
  • Fox Filter is a plugin for the Firefox web browser and for Chrome.
  • K9 Webprotection is software for various devices to filter internet activity
  • There are other commercial solutions, eg from Symantec, Barracuda, Microsoft and many more etc, your browser or operating system may already have some level of filtering available.
