    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

    This HOWTO is moved to:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MoBlock - i do not maintain it. feel free to edit as you like.

    Re: Moblock (peerguardian linux alternative)

    how do you stop/restart moblock? how do you make exceptions for port 80?

    pinoyskull: Are you using breezy? If so, you should install moblock-ipq instead...
    If you are running a kernel > 2.6.15, could you run 'lsmod | grep NFQUEUE'.
    Run 'sudo ls /etc/moblock'. I want to see if all files are there.

    jamesford: I really don't know if it works alongside firestarter. It would be really nice if you (or somebody else) would try this as i have no need for a software firewall (i'm behind a hardware firewall ATM). Let me know, and i'll update my howto.

    bionnaki: MoBlock is actively developed, PG for linux is not. I would say moblock is very easy to handle, and it has a nice and clean structure. You be the judge. I chose MoBlock because almost nothing is happening to PG linux ATM.
    MoBlock has a whitelist at the top of /etc/moblock/MoBlock-nfq.sh. There you can add port 80 (80 which is http is already accepted for outgoing connectiond and their counterpart replys > in.)
    About restarting moblock; it's in the howto, but anyway... 'sudo /etc/init.d/moblock-nfq restart'

    To all of you:
    I've been thinking of writing a GUI for MoBlock using python/ruby, which would handle starting/stopping, updating blocklist, live status and letting people cancel certain ips/ports from the blocklist.
    It would be a tray app of course.

    well it doesent mess with firestarter but maybe thats cos moblock isnt blocking anything it doesent work.
    there are no error messages in the log, appears to be running. but not blocking

    thanks for the howto m8.
    looking forward to the GUI, if you make it.

    is there any equivalent to PG's "pgtext" and Monitor PG?

    Re: Moblock (peerguardian linux alternative)

    jamesford; could you 'tail -f /var/log/moblock.log' and connect to http://relay.slayradio.org:8000/ using beep-media-player or whatever? I get blocked if I do. A couple of times at least, then i get connected from a different ip.
    Also, if i'm not mistaken you can do sudo '/etc/init.d/moblock-nfq status'
