updates the database every hour.

We have experimented with OpenDNS (free) which does an OK job of content
blocking on one of the Muni Mesh systems, but not used it in production. Not
even sure if you can sell it and it is pretty easily defeated.  It is
probably something you could offer for free, though.

Set setup a linux box with squid and dansguardian on it. Customers can 
use it at no cost by changing their proxy settings. Very reliable, 
almost no support required compared to installable software. Just 
another reason for some customers to keep service with us.

I'd suggest you have a nice long talk about this with your lawyer before
doing anything like this. Sounds like a good way to open yourself up to
liability if your blocking isn't 100% effective (it won't be) and little
Timmy sees Janet Jackson's breast pop out or something.

(I know you're in Spain, or at least have a .es email address, and I don't
know what your country's laws are like, but at least in the US this looks
likes something you'd want to be very cautious about doing.)

Open DNS was what I was thinking as well.  You could just give a link to it on 
your website then it's not you problem but then again no profit either.

If you set something up make sure you have an policy that states its not your 
job to be 100% and that the dark side of the web is always working to get 
around whatever you put on there to stop it.

Untangle, Astaro (free 10 user - 10 IP address). Astaro is  
professional grade and really nice but it can be hard saying under the  
10 IP limit if you have lots of network enabled devices. Untangle is  
more consumer grade with a cartoon like interface but it's still  
pretty cool.

Yeah, I forgot to mention OpenDNS but you have to set up your router  
to block or redirect access to other DNS services. Otherwise they'll  
just go right around it.

Another thing about OpenDNS is you will have a record of what bad  
sites were attempted, but you can't tell which computer because it's  
on the other side of the NAT. Something like Untangle or Astaro will  
tell you who, what, where and when.

That works good for young kids to keep them from bumping into bad  
stuff, but if your kids are older and more determined to get to what  
you're trying to block then a solution they don't have physical access
