Is there any better way to block websites than using iptables? I would like
to block all website's on the myspace server. I'd also like to block all
instant messaging chatting from this computer. This computer is also running
windows in VMware server, so I'd like to block myspace from being used from
it too. If I use iptables to block myspace, it will block it from any web
browser even if the web browser is IE6 running in VMware Server right? I got
this ip using ping. How can I block all of it sending and coming to this
