    Moblock (peerguardian linux alternative)

    MoBlock and Peerguardian are both applications that enable you to block internet traffic based on large lists of ip address ranges in order to protect your privacy

    Hi, I'm the gui who is maintaining http://moblock-deb.sourceforge.net/.

    Please have a look at the scripts in /etc/firestarter. There are two interesting files "user-pre" and "user-post" to customize firestarter.

    You should be able to get moblock and firestarter working together if you disable the iptables stuff in /etc/moblock/MoBlock-....sh and add those rules to the firestarter scripts.

    Make sure that the moblock rules grab the traffic before firestarter does

    I don't use it and I don't intend to use it.... but looking at the scripts in /etc/firestarter I can say, that firestarter deletes all existing firewall rules when setting up its own rules.
    So you have to open /etc/moblock/MoBlock-nfq.sh with your favourite text editor:

    Find the line
    /usr/bin/moblock $@

    Everything before this line goes into /etc/firestarter/user-pre

    Leave /etc/moblock/Moblock-nfq.sh unmodified.

    Doing so should cause firestarter to insert the iptables rules that moblock uses under normal circumstances before its own rules.

    doesnt work firestarter says that it can't connect/start!! when i remove the text from /etc/firestarter/user-per than it works!! so i am thinkin that there is no way of workin moblock and firestarter together??
