    mobicip web browser seems to override the internet settings on the ipod touch. Safari seems to work just fine when it comes to using OpenDNS. For example, I have youtube.com blocked at the router level settings and on my OpenDNS settings, but that website is accessible when using mobicip. Anyone else have this issue?

    Some browsers, especially mobile browsers, use proxies and caching to speed and enhance your browsing experience. You'll have to look in the browser settings for any configurable settings. For example, the Opera browser has a "Turbo mode", which directly uses caching proxy servers owned by Opera. Mobile content is frequently reformatted for mobile use by the mobile carrier by proxies as well.

    Seeing as this browser provides content filtering, http://www.mobicip.com/ , this would likely be remote and hosted by mobicip's servers.

    <<For each filter in the Intelligent Real-time Content Filtering engine described above, Mobicip has identified filtering policies primarily based on benchmarks used by school IT directors. While we believe it could be quite restrictive relative to what parents might want to allow, we are constantly tweaking our filtering policy based on feedback from our users. If you have any suggestions or recommendations in this regard, please get in touch with us on our helpdesk. NOTE: If you change your filtering level, ***please allow up to 60 mins for the change to be propagated to all our servers***.>>

    If you can't find any settings, you can contact the vendor for help, or remove the browser, or configure you account for this browser with appropriate filtering.
