Tip & How-To about Vehicle Parts & Accessories

Hello... This tip will be very useful for you.If you want to deny acces

This tip will be very useful for you.If you want to deny access to any website, you can block any website in your computer or laptop using the internal ip settings in the host's files in the windows directory.
There are softwares available to block websites, but we can easily do that using windows files itself.
The steps to be followed to restrict a website from accessing are detailed given below.
Go through the steps correctly and i have added screen shots of the steps for easy understanding, look at it and try out your self.

1] Browse C:WINDOWSsystem32driversetc .
2] Find the file named "HOSTS" .
3] Open it in notepad.

4] Under " local host" Add www.sitenameyouwanttoblock.com , and that site will be no longer accessible.

5] Save the notepad... Ctrl+S...
6] Done...

Now it will be like local host www.sitenameyouwanttoblock.com

-->www.sitenameyouwanttoblock is now inaccessible<--

Now when you type the URL of the website in the address in your browser which you have added in the internal ip and on pressing enter...
It will show like " oops the link appears to be broken"...
And your internet connection will not connect to the website server.

For every site that you want to add in the ip , just add "1" to the last number in the internal ip ( and then type the URL of the site that you want to block.
IE: www.blablabla.com www.blablabla.com www.blablabla.com

If you want to make it again accessible, delete the URL and the corresponding internal ip and save the HOSTS file.

Thats it...

You can use this to prevent children from getting in to porn portals , scam sites or any other sites...

Hope it will be useful...

Thanks for viewing my post....

i want block 2 site so plz send mail.

You need to access the Setup page of Dlink DIR 300 wireless router:
1. Use a working computer that is hard wired to the router.
2. Open a Web Browser (IE, Firefox etc.) on the computer.
3. In the address bar of the browser type and press Enter.
4. When the login window appears, set the user name to admin and leave the password box empty. Click OK to continue.
(Note: If you setup your own Usename and Password on your router please use those info to login instead of using the default)
You will then see the Setup page of the router.
5. CLick on the ADVANCED tab.
6. On the left side of the screen Click on Parental Control.
7. On the "Configure Parental Control below: " select the option "Turn Parental Control ON and DENY computers access to ONLY these sites".
8. ON the "Website URL" tyoe in the website that you want to block
9. Click on the Save settings button.

Once completed then the sites you entered are completely denied and blocked on your router.

restricting websites at router or firewall level


The pix does not allow you to block urls except if you use it in conjunction with websense for example. You could however deny all outgoing traffic to port 80 except for the ip address of the websites you want to be able to access.

To do that you would setup an access-list allowing you internal network to access certain ips on port 80 and deny all other traffic outgoing.

Let me know if you need more information on how to accomplish this.
