Six easy steps to using Netscape Communicator 4.5x
and RSACi together.

Back To FAQ Main Index

Step 1

Start Netscape Communicator
Pull down the Help menu.
Select 'NetWatch'...

Step 2

Click on the link to begin the setup process.
RSACi effectively blocks unwanted content in four areas: Language, Nudity, Sex, and Violence.

Step 3

Click on 'Recognize RSACi Ratings'
Clicking on the window next to a category will give you a menu containing a brief description of each content level. Simply select the level appropriate for your needs.

Step 4

You will now be prompted for a password. This password will be used to lock the settings - you must have this password to be able to turn ratings on or off, and to set the levels of restriction.

From time to time it is probably a good idea to change your password!

Step 5

'Allow users to see unrated sites' - Unchecking this box will block any and all sites that have not rated with RSACi. This can be very helpful given the nature of the web and how quickly new sites are being set up every day.

Unchecking this box is your best bet for blocking unwanted content from your children!

Complete the setup process by clicking on 'Save Changes'

Step 6

Give it a test!
Try going to the Playboy Home Page. If you are blocked, congratulations! If not, start over and see if you missed something.
