Sorry, this is not a firewall-problem, but Billy had the same idea,
that we are actually going to discuss. One of the networks, where
I'm involved in management, is the network of a students residence.
The ISP contract says, that no one is permitted to use the network for
other than educational and technical reasons. Games, xxx-websites,
etc. is forbidden.
Each student signs a contract too, with the same words, but, they
play games and get xxx-websites. The ISP says nothing at the
moment, but he might tomorrow. We don't want to bann websites,
to change the behaviour of the students, cause we don't want any
kind of censorship. But there was the idea of releasing the
personal surf stats.
We don't know, if this would violate the personal rights of the
Ok, it depends from the country (germany). Anybody out there
who has experience with that or can point to some laws? Are
there mailingslists with such topics?
PS.: I would suggest to answer me with pm, cause this is
really not a firewall related problem.
