We use Connectotel to filter access, but students are constantly finding new proxies to bypass the filters to get to Myspace, Bebo, etc. I must add about 10 new proxies a day to the block lists.


We added a deny rule:


This stops 90% or so of the proxy server sites. It won't stop the user from getting into proxies, but they won't get anywhere from there.

In addition, don't forget to add a rule to block Port 443 as most proxy sites offer SSL access.
