URL Blocking
I want to restrict access to specific pages on the internet based upon key words within the URL. For example I might want to restrict access to all URLS's that contain the word "sun" eg www.sun.com, www.sunbed.com, www.sunshine.net, www.abc-sun.org, etc etc.  I understand that you can use the * character as a wildcard within a PICSrule except I can't seem to quite make it work. Any suggestions? In theory shouldn't I be able to have the following:

(PicsRule-1.1    (     Policy (RejectByURL ("http://*.*sun*.*:*/*"))     Policy (AcceptIf "otherwise")   ) )

NB: This doesn't work!!

 



Software/Hardware used:
tried with Windows 7 on a Dell PC with Internet explorer version 7 and also on a Lenovo PC running windoes XP with IE 7
