    Re: General MoBlock thread

    Hello jre,

    Thank you for your answer.

    I have realized I had set this machine as LAMP server just before this started.

    I think this was the "problem".

    Or better the fact I left Apache and MySQL on default auto start settings.

    After stopping services and preventing them from autostart with
    sudo update-rc.d -f service_name remove
    no more connections are logged if p2p software is off.

    Sorry to bother you for my stupidity

    Re: General MoBlock thread

    Setting up Moblock and Mobloquer as a non technical person was hard going but I think it is done fairly correctly though I only partially understood what I did and which lists I should use.

    Anyway question: Should I enable blocklists in transmission when I have moblock running??? will this enhance or degrade security??

    Thanks for your hard work on this

    Re: General MoBlock thread

    The correct list setting depends on your needs. My advice is to visit iblocklist.com and read the description. Generally I don't recommend to use too many lists. The default setting in my packages is already nearly paranoid.

    If you don't have any whitelistings there is no point in using a blocklist in transmission, but it won't hurt either. If you have whitelistings (e.g. for http port 80) then you might gain a little additional security by using a blocklist in transmission.
    If you use only blocklists in transmission, but not moblock at all, then your system will loose its "stealth" mode. Further I don't know if you can combine several blocklists in transmission, and how the updates are handled. So I strongly suggest to use at least moblock.

    Perhaps the FAQ at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MoBlock helps you further.

    Re: General MoBlock thread

    Thanks so much for your speedy response. I have both running and I think I stuck with the standard blocklists so I should be fine!

    I did open the ports for AMSN (and who knows what else Idid!!) so it would work but I don't think that is the same as whitelisting.

    Anyway thats brilliant I will leave them both running if there is no conflict.

    Re: General MoBlock thread

    "whitelisting" is opening the ports, or allowing traffic on those ports.
    In most cases you will only whitelist outgoing TCP ports (WHITE_TCP_OUT), which allows you to use other services on the internet.
    I don't know what is needed for AMSN - here it might be that you need to whitelist incoming (TCP) traffic, too.

    You can verify your config with "blockcontrol show_config". Every variable is documented in /usr/lib/blockcontrol/blockcontrol.defaults. If you need to correct changes, but can't do it in mobloquer, then you have to edit /etc/blockcontrol/blockcontrol.conf.

    Hi Guys / Girls

    I'm having a bit of a problem getting moblocker to start and I'm hoping someone can help! I've been through the guide @ http://help.ubuntu.com/community/MoBlock, done the install and gone through the configuration but when the app tries to start i get the following message in terminal'

    If any blocklists are missing, they will be downloaded. This may take several

    The installation of blockcontrol will fail, if starting moblock fails. So if

    I've removed Bluetack_Level` and then moblocker updates everything down to 'TBH_Educational_Instuitions so I remove that, general-corperate-ranges and tbg/primary-threats then finally moblock starts...

    is there any reason those 4 stop moblocker from starting at all? should it not just skip past and say they arnt updated? or is it because its a first time install and i've not downloaded those lists yet?

    Re: General MoBlock thread

    Yes, this is intended behaviour: MoBlock refuses to start if any configured blocklist is not available. But if an update of a list fails, it just uses the last available version of that list. I decided that this way, so that users get aware of the fact that a list is missing (while it is acceptable that an old version is used).

    BTW, I just tried your blocklists.list and all lists were available.

    thanks for the reply - i guess mine was failing to start then because i didnt have a previous available version. it's interesting that mine wouldn't update - perhaps ill try again now and see

    I've just tried it again and i keep getting the same behavior even if i manually add the list from iblocklist.com - i also get the same issue on another machine i have with ubuntu 10.04.1 installed on
