can comodo firewall be used to block kids from accessing a website [Resolved]

i don’t want my kids to view a certain website, how would i go about creating a rule to do this? Please help! Or refer me to a product that would do this. Thankyou:)


There’s two ways to do it(that’s easy):


Go to \WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc, and open hosts with notepad.
Then after where it says ‘ localhost’, go down 1 or 2 spaces and write ‘’ and ‘’ to block the site(in this example, we use Google). Remember to do one with and one without the www-part.

It should look something like this:

# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp. # # Det här är HOSTS-exempelfilen som används av Microsoft TCP/IP för Windows. # # Den här filen innehåller mappningar av IP-adresser till värdnamn. Du bör # inte ange fler än en post per rad. IP-adressen bör anges # i den första kolumnen och följas av motsvarande värddatornamn. # IP-adressen och värdnamnet måste åtskiljas av minst ett blanksteg. # # Kommentarer (som dessa) kan infogas på en egen rad eller # efter ett datornamn. Kommentarer måste föregås av tecknet #. # # Till exempel: # # # källserver # # klientvärddatorn x localhost

Make sure ‘hosts’ isn’t write-protected before you save.


If you want to block with CPF, create the following network rule:
Action: Block
Protocol: IP
Soruce IP(host name):

Place it as rule 0.

I’d recommend number 1 if you’re blocking more than one site.


You are a LIFESAVER, seriously wow, the host file rule worked great. Ive been looking for a while at how to block the site. Thanks isn’t enough.

I agree with Ragwing. There are other ways, but they’re either not free or harder to do.
