Introduction

I found two ways of using peerguardian blocklist file under Unix. The first was the official peerguadian under unix project ( http://moblock.berlios.de/ ) but i have had problems with the library. If someone would try to make it work it would be great. The second was a to use Linblock ( http://dessent.net/linblock/) witch was use under Linkstation.

Installation of Linblock

Linblock requires some Perl Libraries. Those can be installed via cpan, just run :


cpan -i LWP Net::IP IPTables::IPv4  


I have had some make error with the IPTables::IPv4 library, so I installed it manually ( http://search.cpan.org/~dpates/IPTables-IPv4-0.98/IPv4.pm )


tar -xzvf IPTables-IPv4-0.98.tar
cd IPTables-IPv4-0.98
perl Makefile.pl
make
make install


Download (http://dessent.net/linblock/) and chmod linblock

chmod 755 linblock.pl

Using

Linblock requires the p2p peerguardian file format. You can find it on the peerguardian wiki then just run :

linblock -i yourfile.p2p

It will parse and then insert the rules inside iptables. It can take a really long time...
