    Thanks in advance for giving my post your consideration,

    I am currently in search of web-content filtering solutions. I am very satisfied with openDNS and how it works on my LAN and Wireless Network. That being said, we live in an apartment building, and openDNS can be easily skirted by connecting to one of the numerous unsecured WiFi networks within range.

    I have researched ways to prohibit connection to unsecured Wireless Networks, but I realize that may post a problem or me if I am traveling or need to get online at a hotspot. What I am really looking for is a way to either apply openDNS to the individual laptop (MacBook) in addition to the network, in hopes of maintaining the filtering of openDNS no matter what network I'm on.

    Is this possible? Alternatively, is there a solution that offers what I'm looking for but doesn't use openDNS?

    Thanks,

    James

    There are plenty of web filter programs that can be installed.
    K9 web protection might be an option, it says it works for a Macintosh.
    Or a bit of googling would turn up plenty of alternatives, such as this page.
    I can't recommend any individual solution, mostly because I don't have a mac.
