Alternative to OpenDNS

All,

now that OpenDNS is no longer a free service I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about free alternatives.  We have some customers that just refuse to pay for this type of service.

Thanks in advance!

Alternative to OpenDNS

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but if you (or your customers) are willing to 'roll up your sleeves', take a look at this:

http://isc.sans.org/diary/DNS+Sinkhole+Parser+Script+Update/11818

Basically, you run an instance of the BIND DNS server, and the script automatically keeps it up-to-date with known-malicious domain names from a bunch of different sources.  It does not do site categorizations, though, so you can't permit/deny inappropriate sites (e.g. porn) that isn't malicious.

Even if you're not going to run the full instance of BIND, the script itself is a pretty interesting.
