bodhi.zazenApril 6th, 2011, 04:11 PMJust realized I didn't phrase my first question correctly, what I meant was why would you ever not want to use a hosts file? hhhobbit 22:54, 14 February 2007 (UTC) Congratulations for your excellent document (far better than the French one)!

sdemscApril 26th, 2011, 08:23 PMthanks. But most of the blocking hosts files have moved beyond just blocking ads. i'm not too knowledgeable in linux. investigate.

Please say who you are and what purposes you feel a hosts file is for. After all, the query turns into at least one UDP (User Datagram Protocol packet) out to the DNS server and one UDP packet back. wget ... who states on their user page that they run the forum being linked to.

  1. Through asking at the reference desk, I found out that Spybot - Search & Destroy populated my hosts file. (not me) Maybe the caption can be modified to explain about Spybot.
  2. Each link should be considered on its merits, using the following guidelines.
  3. If it makes any changes it should make them in a copy and put off reloading the Cache only after all the alterations are done.
  4. Relevant entries added to all of the hosts file on the LAN is a fast, easy way to do that.

Running a local web server can expose a system to increased external attacks; doing so for this purpose is questionable. PPP (talk) 20:15, 18 July 2009 (UTC) Sadly, PPP is correct; the hosts-file format does not support wildcards. to load. I must state right off that the MVPS hosts file, and the BadHosts hosts file (a super-set of the MVPS hosts file) DO NOT BLOCK ADS!

Most of them aren't using Active-X so much any more and are instead using Java, JavaScript, Flash Player, or something else to inject their payload. A real service here. If you have email address at Hotmail,, etc etc then you will not get notifications and need to manually check for new replies. There are several Utilities that can reset the DNS Client for you ...

A: It's explained nicely at Q: But why do this in Ubuntu? I guess part of the list is also from a 'not desireable' list, perhaps used in companies.

My Ubuntu is like a shield of steel! Therefore, if you find a entry that you believe shouldn't be in this list, I will gladly take it out if you give me a valid reason. Did that answer all your questions? mellowchuck123December 30th, 2011, 03:34 AMthanks mellowchuck...

What directory, proper syntax to mark, or is that something that needs to be done with a text editor (the marking) to the hosts file it's self? How bad is the situation? To resolve this issue (manually) open the "Services Editor" Start | Run (type) "services.msc" (no quotes) Win8 users - Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services Scroll down to "DNS Client", THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BadHosts and MVPS Hosts files blocks the ones that we can find. ONLY after making that administrator account (or at least verifying you can log in as 'Administrator') should you lower your privileges to a 'safe' level. Oddly enough once in a while the video would play but it was rather irregular. navigate here It would not work because of this hosts file.

Without those names in the hosts file you would instead get unknown: and unknown1: for example. -Chuck mellowchuck123September 16th, 2011, 07:51 PMSeptember 16, 2011 HOSTS file. keeps getting killed saying I dont have tofrodos.

This is because of the heritage of Windows coming from a single user environment as opposed to a multiple user and multi-logged on environment.

Also, there are many sites, which maintain hosts files and some of them are very restrictive, even too much. his comment is here The one hosts file I wished was listed that isn't is Camelon's.

Therefore, I think the warning that the links are commercial needs to be removed. Plus such a censor tool need not only be national but also company thing. The same address can appear on as many lines as necessary. How is this done, to mark certain lines, if possible a more detailed step by step?

Just an account with 'Administrator' privileges. ipernarJune 9th, 2010, 04:29 PMHere is a link to a site with a script to update your hosts file: hostsfile.mine ( here is my host file if you wish to block Of course, Windows IS the main enabler of malicious requests everywhere. But, in the Windows environment, it's referred to as a "HOSTS file".

How is this done, to mark certain lines, if possible a more detailed step by step? i'm just looking for something that i could turn it on/off very easily without having to go thru the terminal so that i could allow a webpage here and there. The sites I was using to test and and both had ads while the video loaded? Unfortunately both were eventually reverted by Kbrose.

Example - the following entry blocks all files supplied by that DoubleClick Server to the web page you are viewing.
