    pcwrt can’t block proxy sites, but if i block Proxy in the access control, the internal proxy connection into these sites is blocked?

    In other words, the proxy site is accessible, but can pcwrt block the internal connection?

    For example, can pcwrt block “kproxy.com” connection?

    If not, other than OpenDNS, can you say me other Anti-Porn DNS that block proxy sites too?

    The router relies on DNS services like OpenDNS to block proxy sites. When you check “Block Proxy” in access control, the router blocks HTTP requests sent through a proxy (i.e., when the user has set up to use a proxy server in their browser Connection option), which is a technique DNS services do not block.

    As far as we know, the best protection against proxy sites is OpenDNS.

    Is possible to block the internal connection of the proxy sites?

    @casino Proxy sites fetch pages on the requestor’s behalf from their servers, then send the pages as if they come from the proxy sites themselves. To the router, there’s no difference between a proxy site that fetches content from other sites and a real site that serves content on its own.

    Is there a reason OpenDNS does’t work for you?
