Internet content Filtering for Red Linux

NetNanny is not free. Yes, there's a trial version that you can use for 30 days, but it's not free.

I don't know of any program available for linux though. You might want to try browsing the linux utility sites:

http://www.linuxlinks.com/Web/Utilities/

The problem you may find is that many of linux utilities will be "free."

What you really need to do is find out if Net Nanny (or any other third party programs that provide filtering orsite blocking functionality) works with your version of linux.
