More 127.0.0.1's

By The Listed 'G MAN' ·
Looks like with the additional adverts on the site a new raft of 127.0.0.1's is needed in my hosts file. That or at the DNS level on my servers / OpenDNS server options.

How do you block unwanted ads?

What browser?

by Tig2 In reply to More 127.0.0.1's

In FireFox, Adblock and the anti Java plug in work well. What OS and browser do you use?

Using

XP 64 Bit Edition SP2 with Firefox, Minefield (the x64 firefox) and IE 32 / 64 bit (depending on what site I need to be on or what I'm up to).

I have Adlock installed at home but need to try the anti java plugin. It sounds like it will hit the spot!

Quite a few ad domain are blocked at the DNS level at work using OpenDNS. The internal DNS servers here use this as a forwarder.

a new raft of localhosts?

by Jaqui In reply to More 127.0.0.1's

127.0.0.1 is exactly that, the loopback interface on every machine.

you are trying to suggest that TR is serving ads from your system?

No,No

Point the ad domains to 127.0.0.1 locally and hence they cant serve me any ads.
