PeerBlock not showing anything being blocked
March 26, 2010 05:05AM
I tried the test and apparently it was blocking the General Electric, or not. All I know is that cmd told me the time was out. But the status screen is just blank, so there is no way of knowing whether PeerBlock is really blocking anything or not.

Heya Hereticaster.

Could you possibly give more information about your computer such as operating system and has it worked before? Anyway, there are few workaround methods for some people that have experienced this similiar problem. Try disabling and then enabling your PeerBlock again. Have you tried by installing PeerBlock via installer and then restart your computer?

Are you doing anything which may have involve connecting to other computers? If not, PeerBlock will not do anything.

Also, you have HTTP allowed so you won't see any blocks when browsing the web.

I've got WinXP Pro SP3, and I have a sort of house-net me and my brother use. However I don't have a slightest idea how that would matter to PeerBlock.

Also I only dealed with PeerGuardian in the past, but since the lists stopped updating I decided to check PeerBlock out.

P.S.: nice Firzen avatar, night_stalker_z winking smiley

So, any ideas on how to fix that thing?

Have you tried doing what I suggested? Also for some, re-installing has sometimes solved this too.

An easy way to check is to set HTTP to block, use the anti p2p list and start browsing the internet.

If you go to a site like GameSpot, you will notice half the site is missing and a whole lot of blocks with port 80 shown in PeerBlock.


Otherwise do what Tippy has suggested.


Another reason why PerBlock might not block anything is if you have a firewall and it takes the connections before PeerBlock does.

Alright, problem solved. Thanx for the help, Tippy. Disabling and then enabling it again helped. Sorry for the fuss, must have been drunk or tripping, because I didn't see your post. Happens to me sometimes.

Thanx again for the help, guys.
