IP Blocking - China Only ?


Recommended Posts

It seems strange to me that when I look up the blocked IP's, they are always (only) from China.

From past experience, using other blocking APPS, they were from all over the middle & far east.

Running the Trial Version on XP/SP3

Hello ksiemb:

It could be the luck of the draw or it might be the nature of your Internet activities. A good hardware firewall might limit your 'discoveries' somewhat. Let's hope you're only seeing "Incoming" blocks.

If you lurk the other topics, you'll see that incoming IP blocking is truly happening from worldwide sources.

I hope you are now appreciating what the PRO version can do for your system's safety.

HTH :)

Yes, while on the WEB, I stay pretty much on the beaten path, home page, email, forums, facebook etc, and I am not 'click happy' or download unless I trust the site. And, yes, I only see Incoming blocks, which is good. Just hope my request to add the Origin to the popup balloon and/or Protection Log was forwarded to development, so curious users as myself don't have to continually do manual IP lookups to see where the block originated. I am on the Trial currently, will purchase Pro as soon as SSA visits my bank !
