Tip & How-To about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Before you read this check out my tip on PeerBlock (PB1) that continues from where PG2 developers left off, its more stable with XP,Vista and 7.
Are you worried about who might be looking over your shoulder in a Big Brother sort of way then protect yourself from spurious PING's from Servers that you don't want to broadcast your IP address too.
PG2 rc1 PeerGuardian 2 for Vista/Windows 7
PG2 6c PeerGuardian 2 for XP/2003
PG2 6b (x64) PeerGuardian 2 for Windows XP/2003 x64 Edition
PG2 6b (NT) PeerGuardian 2 for Windows 2000/XP/2003
PG2 6b (9x) PeerGuardian 2 for Windows 98/ME
PeerGuardian 2 and BlockList Manager Pro can be used to great effect to block both TCP and UDP protocols download these three lists from my sky drive and replace the corresponding files in BLM program files folder
IMPORTS.TXT <-- use this only if you uTorrent with ipfilter.dat
EXCLUSIONS.TXT <-- use this only if you uTorrent with ipfilter.dat
EXPORTS.TXT <-- exports resulting blocklist for use with PG2
To use BLM first press CTRL + U to download and check the standard blocklist you will also need to enable them in the Options menu press CTRL + O to access this you will have to Enable ALL as shown
It will take about 20mins to process the blocklist for use with PG2 don't forget even though you have downloaded my three Sky drive files you will have to click the Export List menu button to convert the newly created Blocklist for use.
When you have finished creating a merged blocklist you will need to add this you you PG2 list manager as shown below the Default name for PG2 is GUARDING however you can use whatever name you like.
Occasionally PG2 may crash if this is the case then all you have to do is Recover PeerGuardian from its Program Files Menu and restart the program this will work 99.9 % of the time if not then restart your PC
And thats it .....
Oh if you want to block HTTP then right click the blue PG icon in the taskbar this will prevent port 80 from displaying websites or in other words block all you browsers you can use this to prevent your kids from surfing the internet when you don't want them too...
