    This is a feature we are considering adding in a future release of K9 – however, we are wondering if people want it more for “Save/Restore” functionality (for backup purposes), “Share” functionality (to share, for example, white or black lists with friends), or “Central Management” functionality (to keep multiple K9 installations in-sync with one another).

    Please give your feedback and suggestions as comments. Also, if you are looking for “Centralized Management” functionality, you may want to also add your votes to the “Remote/Central Management” idea at https://k9webprotection.uservoice.com/forums/84793-general/suggestions/1206565-remote-central-administration

        This software is no longer in development, the developers haven't responded in years. sad.

        I would really love this, for all the listed reasons. The perfect solution for me would be a superuser, with option to set up multiple setting profiles (sort of as templates) which i then could distribute to my several devices, as they have all some settings in common, (my pc, my wifes pc, and the kids) but they also all differ. on this way i would save a lot of time, and get a more easy user ajusted setting.

        in addition to that each pc should have a standard user, and then an option to change user. or even better sync it with the windows users, on that it would be personal everytime everywhere.
        with windows user sync there should also be the option to create a default setting. which could be used if a pc created a new windows user, so you couldn't cheat around the users,

        and off cause the settings should be in the cloud or at least being able to make a backup file.

        if it was in the cloud, then my wife could grant me 15 minute of access to something when i ask for it, without she being around. or could be awesome i could reguest an allowed permantly or time restricted acceptance on a specific domain or category, and she would automaticly get promted on her pc if she was online. and the 15 minutes would then start when i again responded to her accept

        Ability to backup Activity Log (sites visited data) and /or ability to Email that log in case an administrator wanted to monitor that PC internet activity.

        The ability to download the list of blocked websites and keywords is in important in case we want to uninstall K9 and reinstall it later.

        This could be when we uninstall K9 to check out another filter.
        We could then enter the same information to the other filter.

        Or if we reinstall K9, we can enter the same information on it again.

        Thanks for a great software - if we have customised long list of allowed or disallowed sites and if we shift to a new computer, the facility to export that list from the old computer to the new computer would be hugely helplful.

        Just an option to import/export URL keywords lists would be amazing.
        As it is, I have a whole bunch of words in a custom list, and if I want to move to a new computer it's going to be a huge pain to manually add all the words again.

        i wish to export my settings to a file so i could share it with others or could reuse those settings if i reinstall K9 Web protection

        Inability to share or transfer whitelist settings is becoming a deal breaker. You are apparently still at the same place as last year. If we do a tight category setup there are over a hundred sites we have to add to the 'Allowed' list. We have a dozen systems we are testing (bought licenses). That is 1200 entries I have to type in. Management wants more systems protected and I won't approve more until this issue is resolved. Thank you.

        A workaround is to copy and paste your whitelist to an excel sheet and create a macro using iMacros to import the sites.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We really need this option. 16 PC's with over 50 sites to whitelist.
        Does anyone have a temporary solution ASAP?

        Thanks for this GREAT software. I'm an IT and I've a lot of customers using it.
        I'm also looking for an option to copy/share setting so I wont need to reset the K9 for every customer.

        Thank you !!!

        For me, it would be for Save/Restore functionality only, and I would like the feature, please.
