I am a bit puzzled by this. seems that a fair portion of a website i code for and support's customers are unable to access it at work, with messages similar to this one:
[Based on your corporate access policies, access to this web site ( http://www.webtogs.co.uk/ ) has been blocked because the web category "Weapons" is not allowed.
If you have questions, please contact your corporate network administrator and provide the codes shown below.
Notification codes: (1, WEBCAT, BLOCK-WEBCAT, 0x003a3872, 1243526187.903, AAAAXgAAAAAAAAAAyf8AEP8AAAA=, http://www.webtogs.co.uk/
the site sells outdoors gear - and amongst other thing, swiss army knives. that's hardly what i'd call weapon.
anyway - what software do you know that does this kind of block on a proxy/firewall level, does it rely on any online directories or does it analyse content as it comes in, is there a way to appeal against classification...
as a whole, open to ideas how i can figure this out and rectify it - reports thus far have been from women and not very forthcoming...
