Blocking access to certain website using route

In case you happened to block certain site from being access from you pc/notebook/server or whatever..

let’s say.. it is a “site.com”
let check the ip address of the site..


[[email protected] ~]# nslookup site.com
Server: 208.67.222.220
Address: 208.67.222.220#53
Non-authoritative answer:
Name: site.com
Address: 66.113.131.78

then to block it run

route add -host 66.113.131.78 gw 127.0.0.1

will be routed to localhost (lo) interface instead

in windows would be


route add 66.113.131.78 MASK 255.255.255.255 192.168.1.222

windows-route-blocking
assumed 192.168.1.222 is some ip in your network that not been used.
.. it will be gone after reboot,

but if want it to be permanently would be something like


route -p add 66.113.131.78 MASK 255.255.255.255 192.168.1.222

in linux ..

you could either create a route file for each interface, e.g.,

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-lo
and put entries in it like this in the file:

66.113.131.78/32 via 127.0.0.1

or you can add route add commands to /etc/rc.local.

    have you become root first before issue
    with

    “su – ”

    “service zm start” ?

    can be also as ..

    “/sbin/service zm start”

    or
    “/etc/init.d/zm start”
