I am the sysadmin for a small organisation who want to block their employees from going to various websites, eg facebook, youtube etc. Their router is a Netgear DGND3700v2 on which i have enabled the Parental Controls feature and set the Filtering Level to High. This works for most sites (Facebook, porn, gambling etc) but for some reason, if in a web browser i search for Youtube rather than typing the address directly in the web browser, it will still take me there? this is after clearing the browser cache and doing a flushdns. Also in the Account Settings section of the netgear.opendns.com site, i have added youtube.com to the blacklist and yet it still allows me to go to the site! what could be the reason for this?
