lakeytw wrote:Websense categorizes sites. Uncategorized sites and objectionable sites are currently blocked by a policy the Church applies to the firewall. For uncategorized sites or sites that are miscategorized, submitting them to Websense will get them categorized. If they are categorized in a category that the Church deems is acceptable, then the site is allowed. If not, they will still not be accessible.

One work arround would be to send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and request a site be categorized or alternatively create a websense account and use this tool on their site:
Is there any way that we could get that kind of information for the Church's account so that a Stake Technology Specialist can continue to have a usable Websense account?
- Your Company Name
- One of both of the following information, which we will use to identify your account:
- A Valid, Current Product Activation Key (preferably)
- The email address of a corporate contact within your company, who has a valid MyWebsense account, and who can verify your account status

If the filtering IS the same for both a CCN and FHC then wouldn't this give us a method of submitting sites? Of course, I am assuming that the sites that are unblocked are pushed out to all firewalls.
