Parental Control software (net nanny etc)

Hi

Now tht my daughter is of an age where she wants to "surf" by herself, I want to ensure that appropriate controls and filtering software is in place.

I just wondered what people use here and if anyone can offer any recommendations. I have been lookling at Net Nanny, any comments on that?

Thanks
Vinny

K9 with OpenDNS on her machine. Also worth having a look to see if your router offers any services - no biggie if not as K9/OpenDNS is good.

Good guide to using openDNS for this here:

Worthwhile even if just as a fallback. They're better than most ISP DNS servers in the first place too.
