I sent to Nigel the needed block, as in Extremadura we use it by
default. IE browsers are blocked, except when they access to the MS
security update sites, to allow security updates if some windows machine
is needed).

If Debian Edu does not enable it by default, we'll do it anyway later,
so from our point of view, it would be great if you do it.

OTOH, we use transparent proxy in our networks (bypassing ftp & https
connections to the router instead to squid). I remember some time ago
you told me that you could not do it because of something related with
this proxy setup. is it still needed?. If you still need it, will this
setup conflict with our transparent proxy in some way?
