Yes, you can. It's just a Unix daemon that is queried by the portmasters
if a certain filter name is applied to a connection by Radius. It helps
you to maintain filters if you have many Portmasters, and you can also
get centrally-maintained filter lists from the Internet to allow only
proven (=3Dmainly non-XXX) sites.
