Net Responsibility is intended to be a good open source accountability software
for all major platforms. It's purpose is to prevent people from certain surfing
habits by holding them accountable to others.
This is done by logging all internet traffic and generating clear reports that
are emailed regularly to the accountability partner(s).
First you need to install libPoco (www.pocoproject.org). Either find a
precompiled package and install (it should be version 1.4.0 or later), or
download the complete source and compile it yourself.
Net Responsibility is designed to follow the regular GNU make-chain. To install
the software, open a terminal and run:
cd [Net Responsibility Top Dir (this dir)]
make install #As root
On Linux and Mac you'll need GCC and libpcap, while Windows requires MinGW,
MSYS and WinPcap to be installed. Note that you'll have to run the commands
inside the MSYS-terminal on Windows.
To uninstall Net Responsibility you can run:
make uninstall #As root
More installation instructions can be found in the file INSTALL.

Net Responsibility was first developed by Scott Severence. Without his efforts
this project would probably not be what it is. His code is found in all versions
up to 2.0.2.
This project heavily relies on the Poco C++ Library, found at
www.pocoproject.org. This library have made the whole journey a lot easier!
Other software with the same purpose, mainly x3watch and Covenant Eyes, have
been a big inspiration. If Net Responsibility is not working good enough for
you, consider using one of these.
