Windows Pornographic Filter Doesn't Filter

Postby jkconnections » Sat Sep 18, 2010 10:03 am

I'm seriously considering purchasing the Windows version now that the image filter works for Windows. I'm testing out the Beta currently, but can't get the image filter to block a single image.

Here's what I've done:
1. Enabled the Image Filter
2. Edited the default image filter profile and set the threshold to -10 wanting it to "overblock" something - anything - just to prove the filter was working. (I've also tried with just the default setting prior to adjusting this number).
3. Saved the changes to the image filter profile and clicked "Save Settings" to save the SafeSquid Settings
4. Restart the filter service and browsed to a webpage but no images were blocked - none. Not even the image found on this page:
http://www.safesquid.com/html/portal.php?page=80

I am using the free trial. The About page says the image filter should work until October seeing as I just installed tonight.

Anyone have any ideas what I'm doing wrong? I'm about ready to give up . . .

Thanks in advance
Jon

You are actually allowing all images to be viewed by keeping the Threshold Limit lower. When the Threshold Limit is higher, it makes Image Filter 'stricter'. So increase the score and check again.

Check 'View log entries' in the interface to see how much higher or lower images score with respect to the Threshold Limit.

I apologize for the delayed response. I promise to respond more quickly this time.

I'm using the Windows beta, so how would I provide a tarball? I thought that is Linux based . . .

Regarding the threshold, according to the tool tip, "if you specify the threshold at 1.0 and the image scores at 0.9, the image will be displayed." So why would I want to increase my threshold to a positive number if I'm trying to achieve an "overblock?"

Regarding the scores my images are getting, all images seem to be getting one of two scores: either -4000 or -3333. This includes images that clearly should be flagged as suspicious.

Any thoughts as to why? My trial subscription expires Oct 9, so I have to get this working before then or I'll have to give up.

Thanks!

You can generate a support tarball from Programs > SafeSquid > SafeSquid Support Tarball Generator. Just browser the pages from where you want images to be blocked, and then generate the support tarball, and attach it here.

There are a lot of such entries in the logs -
Code: Select all
error: imgfilter:ignored: small size image

A lot of images are not being processed and getting ignored.
TechSupport will look into this and will reply as soon as possible.

Any word on a fix yet? I'd like to try it again once this is resolved (will need a new license though as my trial expired).
