DansGuardian 2.6.1  



-: Note :-
DansGuardian is licensed under the GPL by its license holder, Daniel Barron. Download and use it for
non-commercial use, which includes home users, installation and use by educational establishment employees, and other non-profit organisations such as charities, social clubs, etc. Non-Evaluation Commercial use requires that a license be purchased from the DansGuardian website (

highly recommend that you read the license agreement information at and that if you will be using your IPCop/DansGuardian firewall in a commercial environment that you pay for a license. The cost is very little when compared to other commercial filtering solutions. Maybe even consider a donation.

DansGuardian is a web filtering proxy that filters using multiple methods. These methods include URL and domain filtering, content phrase filtering, PICS filtering, MIME filtering, file extension filtering, and POST filtering. The content phrase filtering will check for pages that contain profanities and phrases often associated with pornography and other undesirable content. The POST filtering allows you to block or limit web upload. SSL Tunneling is supported.
The URL and domain filtering is able to handle huge lists and is significantly faster than SquidGuard.

DansGuardian is designed to be completely flexible and allows you to tailor the filtering to your exact needs. The default settings are geared towards what an elementary school might want but DansGuardian puts you in control of what you want to block. We recommend that you install the DansGuardian GUI to easily configure the DansGuardian configuration files.

Improvements between DansGuardian 2.4.6-8 and DansGuardian 2.6.1 include: Clean URL Caching, Faster Startup, MultiLanguage Support, Maximum File Size Restriction, bug fixes.

-: Installation Notes :-
1. Make sure you have updated IP-COP with fixes1, fixes2 and fixes3 before installing DansGuardian.
2. Enable the Web Proxy in Transparent mode so that the filtering can occur properly.
3. The installer scripts will block ports 800, 8000, 8001 and 3128 to prevent people from bypassing DansGuardian.
