    Re: HOWTO: Graphical IP Blocker

    Same again. I have 11.04 xubuntu and tried the 10.04 version of iplist, but I get the exact same error with or without trying the gui. However, I had previously tried another pc with 11.04 ubuntu (full version with gnome) and iplist and its gui seemed to work okay, at least without errors, though I don't remember if I tested the blocking. maybe there is just some component from gnome that I need?

    Even if this project isn't maintained, the lists themselves get updated. Or should I just try a different solution?

    Any help appreciated.

    Heres the error when i try to start with ipblock -s

    Code:
    iplist[1886]: error: can't find level1.gz
    ipblock[1872]: error: failed to start, cleaning up

    honestly this is some crap software.

    great idea, but the update function is the Achilles heel.
    Bluetack updates their lists regularly, this enables you to use them, except it wont download the lists, which always have the same filename and path on the server, only the contents of the list files change.

    so yea, look at moblock or some other solution for linux. this is dead in the water from what i can tell.

    i am on karmic btw. and followed directions.

Due to the way IPblock works it doesn't change the behavior of existing firewalls which makes it compatible [1] with other firewall applications like ufw, shorewall or fireHOL. This howto is intended for Beginners and was tested on Ubuntu Feisty, Gutsy, Hardy, Intrepid, Jaunty and Karmic (32-bit and 64-bit).

    Installation
    Add the iplist repository to your sources.list. Make sure to use the correct sources.list that corresponds to your current distribution:
    • Ubuntu 10.10 "Maverick Meerkat":
      Code:
      sudo wget http://iplist.sf.net/sources.list.d/maverick.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/iplist.list
    • Ubuntu 10.04 LTS "Lucid Lynx":
      Code:
      sudo wget http://iplist.sf.net/sources.list.d/lucid.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/iplist.list
    • Ubuntu 9.10 "Karmic Koala":
      Code:
      sudo wget http://iplist.sf.net/sources.list.d/karmic.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/iplist.list
    • Ubuntu 9.04 "Jaunty Jackalope":
      Code:
      sudo wget http://iplist.sf.net/sources.list.d/jaunty.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/iplist.list
    • Ubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex":
      Code:
      sudo wget http://iplist.sf.net/sources.list.d/intrepid.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/iplist.list
    • Ubuntu 8.04 "Hardy Heron":
      Code:
      sudo wget http://iplist.sf.net/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/iplist.list

    The key of the signed packages can be imported like this:
    Code:
    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com C6E3D905C8BCD56BB02E6E0B39456311108B243F
    There is also another way to import the key. You could save the pub key to a file and import it through System->Administration->Software Sources->Authentication->Import Key-file.

    After an update of the Software sources iplist can be installed with any package manager. E.g.:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install iplist
    Note: If sun-java* is installed by gdebi it requires to open the terminal part of gdebi and accept sun's license agreement.
    Packages for Feisty and Gutsy can be found in the 0.19 release.

    After the installation IPblock can be found in Applications -> Internet -> IPblock.



    Lists

    The default choice for lists is similar to PeerGuardian.
    • level1.gz - Anti-P2P organizations and known government addresses
    • ads-trackers-and-bad-pr0n.gz - Advertising and data tracker servers
    • spyware.gz - Malicious spyware and adware servers
    • edu.gz - Educational institutions and universities
    • bogon.gz - Spoofed IP-addresses

    These lists are maintained by www.bluetack.co.uk (list descriptions). Custom p2p or dat lists can easily be added. Note that lists can optionally be compressed with gzip.
    The URL file /etc/ipblock.lists contains list descriptions.



    Settings

    All options can be configured in this and the network tab. Auto-updating lists is important and the default choice of 2 days is reasonable. Using out-of-date lists is not recommended.
    To ignore outgoing network traffic like HTTP or EMAIL (pop3) use the ignored ports section. Note that http and dns (domain) is ignored by default. The connection-settings specify which type of connections should be filtered.



    [1] NOTE: IPblock needs to be started after other firewall applications.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am a complete linux noob and this was one of the things I was fighting with the other night. This worked perfectly for me in Mint 12 using the maverick link.

    Re: HOWTO: Graphical IP Blocker

    I'm having issues adding new lists. As source I picked http://www.iblocklist.com/lists.php, but whenever I try to import one from there it gives me errors. Using latest version of Iplist on Ubuntu Studio 12.10.

    Hi, i installed this to 10.10 and have since upgraded to 12.04. Iplist still seems to be working but the apt sources have been commented out by the upgrade:

    $ cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/iplist.list
    # deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ssakar/ppa/ubuntu maverick main # disabled on upgrade to precise

    # deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ssakar/ppa/ubuntu maverick main # disabled on upgrade to precise

    Is there a newer version for 12.04?

    Re: HOWTO: Graphical IP Blocker

    When I was running Xubuntu 12.04 I used the instructions here to install Peer Guardian for linux: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopi...539688#p539688.

    The one exception to the instructions is I never clicked on <Yes> for automatically starting Peer Guardian linux. I wanted it to only start when I wanted it to.
