Parental Control GUI

Registered 2008-09-05 by KIAaze

GUI for web filtering based on Dansguardian and other tools (ex: tinyproxy+firehol).

Features:
-Automatic configuration of dansguardian+tinyproxy+firehol at installation
-GUI to start/stop the filtering and configure dansguardian+tinyproxy+firehol manually
-Doesn't just replace config files: It tries to just change what's necessary so it doesn't mess up user-modified config files.
-Config files are backed up during installation and restored during uninstallation.
-SSL filtering (works by locking the Firefox proxy settings)

Additionnally to the web content filtering, a few interesting scripts (not yet implemented in the GUI) also come with the program:
-program permission control: control what programs/games can be run
-scripts to add restrictions (quickly add sites to ban by command-line for example)
-...
