I got Dansguardian running on the local machine. I got the setup from
It uses tinyproxy in combination with firehol. Very good stuff! At lower
level the tcp traffic is rerouted using an iptables rule in firehol.
This ensures it can not easily be switched off or overridden. On top of
that the proxy increases surf speed. :-D
Thanks again for all the suggestions.
