    hi

    i used peerblock and added some list /url found at ipblocklist.com (like hijacked,webexploit,Primary Threats,Hijacked)

    well i did notice that i can not open many sites , so in the log (main window), i clicked on some ip and selected allow permanently feature

    for example the block of amazon does let me open many webpages, so i did allow amazon

    but the are other ips that i did not know them, and i did a mistake and did allow them all

    now i can find how undo my mistake , in short i know don't how re-block them outside amazon

    i read the manual , there is how allow permanently ,but there is not information how re-enable what i did block

    may i ask a personal question about peerblock ?
    is peerblock efficacy ? i mean for my security and protection

    i did notice that i can not block an url, i guess to block an url i should use an host editor or add the url to host

    thanks
    cheers

    In PeerBlock click List Manager, you should see a list called Permanent Allows. Select that list and click View. Delete the IP(s) that you need.

    It's only as effective as the lists that you use. On its own PeerBlock is 100% blind. It needs lists to see what to block/allow. And, to be efficient, the lists also need to be.
