People have asked a bunch of times about how to deal with the Google SSL issue. I've read through Google's response for school administrators:
To utilize the no SSL option for your network, configure the DNS entry for www.google.com to be a CNAME for nosslsearch.google.com.
The challenge is that they found Windows 2008 R2 servers won't let you do this. I've been through various forums of people for over a year trying to solve this.
My question is this: can OpenDNS have an option where if we select it, they'll have the CNAME www.google.com point to nosslsearch.google.com for us? I have my internal DNS server's forwarders pointing to OpenDNS's servers. Wouldn't this work? It'd also be something that would work for the home users, too. But in a large network, enforcing safe search is a challenge. The proxy server solution isn't exactly pretty, especially if Bing and Yahoo soon follow suit.
I'm sorry to beat...well, a live horse because this doesn't appear solved yet.
