Locking down Youtube & Google Search

Post#1 by processedmeat » 06 Mar 2019, 04:12

Hi, I'm thinking about using Porteus Cloud in our nonprofit's community center. In the past with our Linux builds we would edit the etc/hosts file and add the following to force safe searching and restricted youtube:

216.239.38.120 www.google.com
216.239.38.120 www.google.ca
216.239.38.120 plus.google.com
216.239.38.119 www.youtube.com
216.239.38.119 m.youtube.com
216.239.38.119 youtubei.googleapis.com
216.239.38.119 youtube.googleapis.com
216.239.38.119 www.youtube-nocookie.com

I noticed when I ssh into the computer and edit this, I don't see any of these redirects.

Was wondering how you would setup safe searching and restricted youtube in Porteus Cloud?

Thanks for reading
