IP / Port Blocking

Postby blueray on Wed Dec 19, 2007 5:15 pm

I am a Linux Mint user and I am looking for a tool that block IP and Port Ranges that belong to agencies/companies (e.g. Anti-Piracy companies etc.) that scan my Computer. I have nothing to hide but I do not like the thought that anonymous external parties analyse data I consider private.
Thank you,

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Guarddog works well enough to pass the Shields Up! Test, but you may also want to use ipblock. Here is the link to the how-to:
