LinkWall - Blocking of URLs and domains

News: 30 March 2010 - Connectotel welcomes announcement of the successor to Novell BorderManager - Novell support of BorderManager continues through to March 2012

LinkWall is a solution to the issue of blocking access to unwanted websites.

The advantages of using LinkWall compared with other third-party solutions include:
  • LinkWall fully supports all BorderManager versions from 3.5 to 3.9

  • LinkWall is the only solution for Novell BorderManager which can make use of public domain blocking lists, such as the squidGuard Blacklist and DMOZ lists.

  • LinkWall does not require expensive ongoing subscriptions to maintain proprietary site blocking lists.

  • LinkWall includes the free, optional use of the LinkWall Blacklist, licensed by Connectotel from, regularly updated and containing more than 600,000 entries.

  • The list of sites blocked by LinkWall is completely open to inspection and can be easily added to or edited by the Administrator.

  • LinkWall operates in conjunction with your existing Novell BorderManager software and does not require additional server or gateway hardware.

  • LinkWall is easy to install and configure.

  • Once deployed, LinkWall can be left running without any further intervention from the Administrator.

  • LinkWall integrates with your existing administration tools including NWAdmin (BorderManager 3.5 to 3.8) and iManager (BorderManager 3.9).
