    Documentation is in /usr/share/doc/moblock/
    Also have a look at the homepages moblock.berlios.de and moblock-deb.sf.net.
    There are no graphics etc., yet. But I might do one once to explain the iptables rules.
    Ask when you have questions.

    No idea, I'm not a programmer. Mobloquer 0.5 is.

    Which one takes priority.
    They are loaded in the following order, so the last overwrites previous ones:
    /etc/init.d/moblock
    /etc/moblock/moblock.conf
    /etc/default/moblock

    Re: Moblock (peerguardian linux alternative)

    Hello

    I tried to install MoBlock 0.9 (Latest version of the Ubuntu Gutsy repository). From what I read in this thread it should work with Firestarter.

    I have a LAN and the computers access the internet through the gateway that is running MoBlock. I White-listed the ports and the ip range of the LAN as suggested in these posts and configuration documentation. Masquerading and DHCP is activated by Firestarter running in the same gateway cmputer.

    Now, when I activte Firestarter first (MoBlock off) the LAN computers are able to browse the internet. As soon as I activate MoBlock all internet access stops for the LAN computers, but not for the gateway that still can see the internet.

    Help please. How can I restore internet access to the LAN computers with MoBlock on ????!!!! This should not be the nightmare it looks like, since this setup should be fairly common.

    Cheers

    Re: Moblock (peerguardian linux alternative)

    Some more questions:

    - What's the size threshold for logs (moblock.log moblock-control.log) to roll over? Is that definable? If so, where can I modify this?

    Could I get clarification on how blocklist data is handled? Its my understanding that after the various blocklists are downloaded, moblock sifts through the data for duplicates and then stores the ranges... where? In a flat file? In memory?

    Thanks,

    Thanks that solved the issue. What's the deal with 3 conf files?

    I second this.

    Why are there three configuration files and which one should we be modifying?

    https://sourceforge.net/project/show...roup_id=198679

    im using 8.04 so i just d/l the deb file and let it install restarted pc, it did the updates and im off and running.piece of cake
    Ubuntu user # 16304 www.nocleanfeed.com
    If someone asks you to sudo rm -rf anything, don't do it, and don't run any command with rm in it unless you know exactly what you're doing.things i have learnt changing from Xp pro to Ubuntu

    It's done by "logrotate". But not after size just in daily interrvals. Configuration is done in /etc/logrotate.d/. Have a look at the logrotate documentation to learn if it is possible to consider file size.

    The lists are downloaded to /var/spool/moblock/.
    If the download succeeded they are copied to /var/spool/moblock/used
    Then these lists are unpacked and cat'ted together to one list.
    Optional: If you use the configuration "IP_REMOVE" now some lines are grep'ped out.
    The resulting list is copied to /etc/moblock/guarding.p2p (in case you are using the peerguardian v2 text format blocklists (current default)).
    Until now that was all done by the bash script moblock-control. Note that this master blocklist contains duplicates.
    If you now start the moblock daemon this file gets loaded. During this loading ranges get merged and duplicates get sorted out. For more details you have to take a look on the source code or ask the upstream author Morpheus (moblock.berlios.de).
    Short answer: file on harddisk does contain duplicates, ranges in memory are already merged.

    /etc/init.d/moblock: This is more a script then a conf file. Normally users should not edit it. It's only a conf file from the technical side (Debian packaging). I added every conf variable there, too, because some users deleted their real conf files which resulted in broken packages.

    [BTW: /usr/bin/moblock-control also includes all configuration variables (conf file no. 4). It gets executed by the init script. But users should just keep their hands off this file )

    /etc/moblock/moblock.conf: This is the main configuration file which does list all possible configuration variables and comments which explain them. It does not include any source. So it's also a kind of documentation file

    /etc/default/moblock: Here you can insert all your configuration. Yes, short answer: Use this file! I added this file because the big moblock.conf does change frequently. Now if you did edit moblock.conf and make a package update your packaging software (aptitude/synaptic/...) will ask you whether you want to keep your changes or install the new version. The best to do would be to take the new version (e.g. bringing in new features) and to integrate your own changes to this new file. Unfortunately this is time consuming.
    Therefore many users just kept their old moblock.conf.
    This is the second reason why I had to make default entries in every script (init.d and moblock-control, see above).
    Further to make automatic package updates easier I added the /etc/default/moblock file which does allow to keep user changes seperate from the main configuration bulk. Since the /etc/default/moblock file never gets changed in the packages (it only contains a short explanation) you will never be asked if you want to keep your changes or install my new version.

    When you do the whitelisting also edit the _FORWARD entries (not only _IN and _OUT)

    The blocklists come from bluetack.co.uk so they may be able to provide additional help.
    Thanks for the input, since i don't like removing ip's from blocklists i'll do just that and stop all p2p apps when utilizing ftp.
