Thread: PeerGuardian and Bluetack Blocklist Manager (come in pls ;)

  1. #1

    Unsure

    Some questions:
    1. Which one would you use - PeerGuardian or Bluetack Blocklist Manager or both or none? Why?
    2. To be able to block the IPs, do I need to open the PeerGuardian and Bluetack Blocklist Manager?
    3. How can I see the allow/block IP history in Bluetack Blocklist Manager (this one is offered in PeerGuardian)
    4. Are the IP blocklists of PeerGuardian and Bluetack Blocklist Manager the same? If not, is it worth downloading/enabling both IP blocklists? Will this slow down or overkill too much?
    Thanks.

    I use both, yes to block you need to open Peerg, i set it up to start with windows, Blocklist is not a blocker just a tool to download lists, peerg downloads its own lists. You cant see history in blockl, its NOT a blocker but just for downloading the lists.I am not sure if they are from same source.

    Why use both?

    Do you download both blocklists and use all together? If so, where do you export your blocklist? To Peer Guardian?


    Did you experience any slowdown if you use both blocklists (I expect there must be some or many duplications)

    i think ur confused
    peerguardian uses bluetacks blocklists, they dont have their own
    so using both programs would just block the same thing twice
    peerguardian is enough for anyone

    It appears they contain different things just from the name of the sources.
    Bluetack has 15 sources, while PeerGuardian(PG) has 5 only.

    By the way, do I need to add blocklists of:
    - bogon, <-- a must to have?
    - dshield, <-- a must to have?
    - fornonlamacomputers (non-LAN) <-- is this one just to block LAN IPs?
    - iana (3 packs),
    - level1
    - level2

    What are their purposes?
    Which one should I use?
