Description:

You wish to block access to certain websites (e.g. www.hotmail.com).


Requirements:


Procedure:

Start LANconfig and go to the DNS filter in the menu Configuration -> TCP/IP -> DNS filter -> DNS filter.

If the DNS restriction is to apply only for a particular host or sub-network, then you can enter this accordingly in the IP address field. You can use the netmask to specify the appropriate subnet (e.g. 255.255.255.240) or the host (e.g. 255.255.255.255).



Finally, delete the DNS cache (from the command line) of the
