    Re: General MoBlock thread

    Hi jre just for FMI (as opposed to FYI): do you happen to know which block list in moblock blocks Multicast addresses? Those kind of SSDP/DAAP/etc stuff that are instigaged by daemons like avahi (in my case usually triggered by media player programs that are roaming to find new local devices for supposedly "sharing" media files and stuff).

    What should happen to that stuff? Should I allow or forbid media players from roaming or should I let moblocker bounce their requests (and thereby keep getting IPs like 224.0.0.251 and 239.255.255.250 appear on Moblocqer log every three or so minutes (I have the moblock supplied "bluetack/iana-multicast" disabled but they still appear on the "last blocks" log display because obviously there must be blocklists other than "iana-multicast" that are blocking Multicast IP addresses).

    Re: General MoBlock thread

    @Gavin77: you're still on the TODO!

    @Jerriy: Probably some bogon list.
    Try "blockcontrol search SEARCHTERM"
    Where searchterm is the description of the blocked range from pgld.log

    If you are ready to not use that lists, you will be absolutely fine with just allowing it. These ranges are just in the lists to prevent IP fakers from connecting to you. I'd just allow the ranges. Changing media players behaviour is ok of course, if you are fine with it.

    Re: General MoBlock thread

    Well that was fairly simple in the end. thank you very much Gavin
    now I just gotta figure out which blocklists are good and which are paranoia....
    Also if anyone knows is there a quick option for allowing http traffic like there is on the windows version?

    Re: General MoBlock thread

    Problem:
    on Oneiric i386 (natty ppa) whitelist (pgl-gui) only works if "permanently" is chosen, i mean be able to unblock an url. If "temporarily" is chosen, moblock seems to do it job but the url is not unblocked, so its a fake allowing.

    Request:
    it should be usefull to add the url name for the allowed url (ie google.com) because xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx dont speak much some days/weeks later.

    Could the pgl-gui box be more resizable (smaller) ?

    Re: General MoBlock thread

    The temp-allow bug is fixed in the git repository (just wait for the upcoming 2.1.2 release).
    Since it only occurs if you use kdesudo (the default) as graphical sudo frontend, you can use gksu instead as workaround for now. Note that gksu prompts for the root password, whil kdesudo prompts for the user password.

    I doubt that there is any technical solution to allow this. You'd need to do a DNS lookup for every IP. Do you know any app where this is implemented satisfyingly?
    But you can still use the IP_REMOVE feature in pglcmd.conf, to remove lines containing the specified keywords.

    Fixed in git.

    Re: General MoBlock thread

    And here we are again: pgl 2.1.2

    Most important it fixes the cannot-whitelist-temporarily-while-using-kdesudo bug.

    The complete ChangeLog:

    Code:
    pgl 2.1.2
    
      [jre]
      * pgld/Makefile: moved LDFLAGS to end of rule. This should solve some
        issues with newer gcc versions
      * pgl-gui: swapped the restart and reload icons
      * documentation updates
    
      [freemind]
      pgl-gui:
      * fixed blank blocklist items, if blocklist is not from iblocklist.com
      * fixed temporary allowing with right-click in the log window
        kdesudo only accepts one command as argument, so execute all commands
        through the tmp script.
      * allow to specify the maximum log size (default 512 lines)
      * reduced window's minimum width and height.
      * removed unused mobloquer code
      * minor fixes
    If there are any issues left, that were mentioned in this thread, please remind me of them.

    Re: General MoBlock thread

    I'm unable to install on 11.10 (Oneiric) as the files don't seem to be there due to a failed build.

    Re: General MoBlock thread

    Yes, I need to fix that. Anybody who knows what changed in oneiric?

    Until then I think you can use the natty repository instead,
