    But it remains weird that the process "ipblock" is nowhere to be found in my sessions manager.
    IPblock is a front-end for iplist which runs as a daemon process if autostart is enabled.

    Re: HOWTO: Graphical IP Blocker

    I am running Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 and have just installed IP Block. Everything is running fine except I am getting:

    Range Source Destination Protocol Action Hits Type
    Consig 192.168.2.1 192.168.2.3 UDP Blocked ## In

    the source is actually my router. My settings are Autostart Verbose Auto-Update: 2 days Log Level: Match HTTP Proxy 127.0.0.1:8118

    Connection I have

    Incoming and Outgoing checked
    Ignored Ports (out) I have HTTPS FTP POP3
    TCP ssh 9001
    UDP domain ntp

    all checked

    Any suggestions?
    Thanx gang.
    These are the setting I currently have. The post above is incorrect.

    Re: HOWTO: Graphical IP Blocker

    I just installed iplist 0.29 but I can't find the binary to run. the installation was successful but when I type iplist in the terminal all I get is "no command 'iplist' found". I searched my filesystem and couldn't find it that way either. am I supposed to use some other command to start up iplist?

    all I type is iplist -h for the commands.

    Auto start, auto update, auto imported lists? This is an awesome addition to my ubuntu.

    Post Re: HOWTO: Graphical IP Blocker

    Thank you for this post. It was extremely easy to implement.

    However, is there anyway to have IPBlock enabled and have my torrents run at full speed? When enabled my torrent download rate is significantly lower as compared to when it is disabled.

    I, too, was very happy to find this post, and I now have IPBlock keeping the parasites at bay. I use PeerBlock when I run Windows 7, for the same reasons.

    However, I think I'm missing something with regard to whitelists. As in, there don't seem to be any, or maybe I just don't understand how to add them to IPBlock.

    I looked through the Bluetack bunch's website, but all the lists were oriented toward blocking stuff, not allowing the stuff you do want.

    In particular, I would like to whitelist traffic for websites I use, such as Netflix, manufacturer product forums, etc.

    I suppose I could completely disable blocking of HTTP traffic, but that would sort of defeat the purpose of using IPBlock.

    When something shows as being blocked on the log tab of IPBlock, you can left-click to highlight it, then right-click to allow the site temporarily or permanently.

    Re: HOWTO: Graphical IP Blocker

    Sure, but I don't want to have to do that every time I try to access a website with HTTP blocking enabled. It gets old, fast.

    I've had to do it with Peerblock under Windows, and it can get really tedious.

    I'd much prefer to have a text file or something containing a list of IP addresses known to be associated with a certain service/company website. If I have to right click and allow every time, I might as well turn IPBlock off.

    For whitelist

    Create a p2p list in /var/cache/iplist/ and add the file to ALLOW_LIST in /etc/ipblock.conf Before editing the configuration file the GUI needs to be closed.
    A sample p2p list: localhost : 127.0.0.1 - 127.0.0.1
