'''MoBlock''' is a IP blocking daemon that uses iptables. MoBlock is also unofficial [[PeerGuardian Linux]] client that is very useful in filtering malicous peers on P2P networks.
= Installation =
First you need [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=5925 moblock] package from [[AUR]]. If you want GUI, install the [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=25466 blockcontrol] (dependency for GUI) and [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=14802 mobloquer] (moblock GUI written using Qt).
= Setting up =
== Configuration ==
Open the /etc/moblock/config file with your favourite editor.
I recommend disabling filtering HTTP connections, so find
and add <code>http https</code> to it. It will looks like: ]
<code>WHITE_TCP_OUT="http https"</code>
In this file you can also customize what lists MoBlock will use for filtering, but is best to keep the defaults (MoBlock will filter about 99% bad connections, but will not be too paranoid).
If you are behind NAT, add this to config:
<code>WHITE_IP_IN=""<br />
That will whitelist everything from to
Now run moblock-update to update the lists.
Note: If you get an error like this when doing a /etc/rc.d/moblock start:
iptables v1.4.8: iprange: Bad value for "--dst-range" option: ""<br />
Try `iptables -h' or 'iptables --help' for more information.
Try using a range instead, so WHITE_IP_IN=""
== Starting up ==
After configuration just run
<code># /etc/rc.d/moblock start</code>
This is it! If you decide that moblock must run everytime you boot up, just add word ''moblock'' to your DAEMONS array in /etc/rc.conf
== MSN ==
If you use MSN for instant messaging, you'll need to add port 1863 to the whitelist:
<code>WHITE_TCP_OUT="http https 1863"</code>
