    Stupis question probably, but where do I find or how do I set the blocklist manager?

    1. click on the 'blocklist manager' in Moore's signature above. note that site is under upgrade at the moment and may not be available.
    2. instructions come with it, quick guide on settings is in my earlier post, there are a few attachments with shots of all my settings in an earlier thread which can be searched for, i'll edit this post with a linky if i have time. note availibility info in no. 1....

    edited: See this Linky for screen dumps on my working settings.

    Re: Security Blocklist Converter - updtd settings for BLM 2.7.7.

    OK, as a tutorial, for blocklist manager 2.7.7, the current version, and OP2009 versions.

    after installing blm 2.7.7.,


    goto options:

    click 'general' and set as per attached


    click 'sources' and set which ones you want to include. double clicking the line items toggles yes/no.
    i find using all makes the list too big, use your discretion.


    use the 'personal sources' settings to enable exclusions, exceptions, imports and exports.


    sample inclusions/exclusions (both are very similar, and via the permit/deny for each ip range, do the same thing)


    sample import setting - note for donna's list type is 'generic...'.


    sample export setting.


    note: for import/exports use your paths, mine are set for OSS, OPFW is different.

    when done, ensure OP's self protection is off & click the 'process' button, if all works, should look like this


    note: if the last line is not 'error count: 0', there was a problem, scroll up the results window to see where. problem is usually that we forgot to turn off OP's self protection, or one of bluetacks sources may be unavailable. note BLM will cache the lists and will not re-download them if they are still new, using a cached version. sometimes that may cause a problem. there is a menu item to clear that behavior. donna's list on occasion has been seen to have incompete ranges, ie. a range should have

    index_no,start_ip-end_ip#comment

    if this is

    index_no,start_ip-#comment

    BLM gives an error. donna's list can be edited to remove the offending line or add the ending ip. i usually add the ending ip

    as xxx.yyy.zzz.255

    where the xxx.yyy.zzz is the 1st three octets from the start range.

    anyways, after it's written to the location of your choice, use OP's settings for the IP blocklist to clear the old list and then import the new one.

    you're welcome, tozzano.

    and my thanks to those unsung heroes out there who maintain the source lists so that we do not have to...

    BLM 2.7.7 Download
    Updated download link for Blocklist Manager 2.7.7. Links in previous posts point to older versions of BLM.

    Re: Security Blocklist Converter

    Since outpost can handle emule's dat files I prefer using Listdop for merging the blocklists.
    http://phoenixlabs.org/pg2/utilities/
    http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...kage_id=171236
    It is much faster than BLM.

    Maybe 'cause BlueTack went out of business when they could not get enough donations together to keep it running?

    Re: Security Blocklist Converter

    blocklist manager still works for me, you just need to change the source options to use other list sources. i use https://www.iblocklist.com/lists.php, you'll need a paid subscription for custom lists in blm acceptable format.
