How to block IP address (NOT URL or UNC name)?

Recommended Posts

Interesting ....



A first thought I am thinking of modifying local ARP tables.


APK you got me into doing a GOOGLE on this one.




Wouldnt it be easier just to mail you a PIX firewall laugh




Scratch the ARP notion .... was hoping mapping a particular IP to the local NIC MAC would work ....

in xp u can learn the firewall stuff

it's long and painfull but works quite well


ipsec policies can be reached from the gpedit.msc

the are tons of things u can do from there.

after creating or altering apolicy dont forget to "assign" it

or nothing will happen

Very Nice Jerry, that idea of using IPsec policies works .... and here's how you do it laugh


I will be using nd.edu as an example ... its a football thing laugh


Under Local Security Settings / IP Security Policies

1. Create a new IP Filter list

2. Source IP is My IP address

3. Destination (in this example) is (nd.edu)

4. Protocol is any

5. Create a new IP Security Policy (use Kerberos 5 authentication)

6. Add an IP Security Rule (this rule is not a tunnel) (all network connections)

7. Add the new IP filter list that you just created. (require security)

8. Assign the new policy


Upon doing this I CAN go to http://www.nd.edu but I CANNOT go to


Scripting can be done with this tool:



I imagine this is what you were looking for APK?

the xp firewall is very good but a pain to configure (as u can see)


it looks like it worked out well


maybe dosfreak or someone can tell us how to automate or even save for the next install of xp



btw this is what i did for a firewall before norton made an xp compatible one

Importing and Exporting Policies is seen here to save for a rainy day




And if you truly wished to have these installed automatically on the initial install of windows, you could use CMDLINES.TXT


These are far easier to maintain, manage, and deploy in a domain environment



LOL .... APK was typing the answers at the same time I was ... woah
