can i block specific sites with CPF??

can i block specific sites with CPF,say playboy.com??

Greetings!

Yes, that’s possible, even tho that’s not normally a firewalls job to do.
Let’s say you want to block access to playboy.com.
First of all, we need to find the IP-adress(es) for playboy.com, which can be done from a site like OpenDNS CacheCheck.
Writing playboy.com gives us the IP adress 216.163.137.3, so that’s what we’ll need for the rule.
Now go to the Network rules or the rules for Internet Explorer/Opera/Firefox and add this (at the top):
Action: Block
Protocol: IP
Direction: Out
Source: Any
Destination: 216.163.137.3

I knew that you could block it from the IP but I didnt know how lol Sweet

:BNC

Thank you 4 ur help…and great thanks to everyone at comodo for this wonderful product… one more doubt…my DSL connection is getting frequently disconnected…have the CPF settings got anything 2 do with this?? i mean,do i hav to allow some .exe’s??( i hav allowed svchost.exe)

There’s a way to do everything :wink:
Might just point out that an Out-rule just blocks connection to the IP, which means you can’t access it, while they’re still able to access your computer (now why would they do that lol).

I don’t think that’s a problem with CFP if you’ve allowed svchost.exe, but you could try and disable the firewall and see if you get disconnected.
