Exclusions
 
The Exclusions section is used to create and keep the black and white lists of websites.
 
The Exclusions section contains pre-set standard black and white website lists that are automatically updated by Entensys.
 
Black website lists are lists that contain websites that will always be blocked. White website lists are lists that contain websites access to which will always be allowed. If the same Internet resource (URL) exits in both a black and a white list, the black list will have priority, i.e. the Internet resource will be blocked.
 
 
You can use wildcards in the lists:
 
List formats are shown in the table:
Example of Record

Users can create their own black and white lists. In addition, in large corporations the Administrator has an option of creating lists and centrally distributing them on all computers where KinderGate is installed. Follow these instructions to create a list:
 
1. Create a text file list.txt with a list of URLs in the following format:
www.site1.com/url1
www.site2.com/url2
www.siteend.com/urlN
 
2. Create an archive of the file named list.zip;
 
3. Create a version.txt file and indicate the database version number within the file, 2, for example. You must increment this value with each update of the list contents;
 
4. Post the created zip file and version.txt file on your website, so that they are available for download; for example, at the following addresses:
http://companyweb.com/filtering/list1/list.zip;
http://companyweb.com/filtering/list1/version.txt.
 
5. On each KinderGate computer create an updatable list and enter the address for update downloads. KinderGate will check your website for a new version twice a day and update it as necessary.
 
You can see the information on the latest list update and version number by putting the mouse over the website icon in the list:
