The kids like to play Webkinz. However, I enabled "Parental Controls" on their account, mainly so that I can limit their login hours—I haven't restricted the web sites they can visit using parental controls at all. It's an iMac running Leopard (we haven't "upgraded" to Snow Leopard, and don't plan to, unless it's guaranteed to fix this problem).
However, they can't play on the Webkinz web site from their account. Safari and Firefox both suffer the same fate: even when correct login info is provided, the application (which is Flash-based) responds that they can't log in.
From other accounts on the same machine, it works fine. From a PC, of course, it works fine.
I found some posts in other forums about the problem, but no real solutions.
How can I let the kids play Webkinz, while keeping parental controls turned on?
Update: When looking at
/private/var/log/apache2/access_log, as suggested by cwrea, I see these two requests during login:
127.0.0.1 - - [21/Aug/2009:21:40:05 -0600] "POST http://184.108.40.206/login.php HTTP/1.1" 200 35 127.0.0.1 - - [21/Aug/2009:21:40:06 -0600] "oxy-Connection: keep-alive" 400 226
Note the invalid request:
"oxy-Connection: keep-alive". Clearly, somehow the request is getting mangled, and only part of a request header is reaching the parent control proxy. Any ideas about what is causing this, or proxy-related settings for Flash?
