    Default Kid's not active enough post on FB

    You know, I get what is trying to be said...

    I understand the purpose of the ad.

    But, this advert just showed the world how to break all automatic software updating, on everything inside an organization / home protected by Untangle all at once.

    Windows Updates at 2am? Nope...
    Apple Updates at midnight? Nope...
    Android / iOS updates while you sleep? Not anymore!

    Because we wanted to show off a basic policy set based on Firewall hard blocks instead of using Web Filter intelligently.

    This is showing off how we broke networks with Untangle in v5. We're on v16 now... time to update the script a bit!

    I saw an Untangle ad claiming to show how to limit kids to 4.5 hours of internet time, which we also all know is baloney. The internet doesn't work that way.

    Well you can using policies schedule time on a machine such that it's only available during a specified window. But then the kids just pull out their smart phones and turn off the wifi.

    Then what?

    My dad's solution was to hide the football. Adjust as needed.
