I’m using suse V11.4
I’m learning to use IP Block.
From a terminal, I do a (su) ifconfig and see my ip address 192.nnn.nnn.5 ( I’ve replaced my real number with nnns)
I do a traceroute google.com and get a list of ips with 192.nnn.nnn.1 being the first.
I start ipblock by doing DISPLAY=:0.0 /usr/sbin/ipblock gui
I then add to the lists my own file which contains
I enable ipblock, a small popup says 177 gazillion IP are blocked
6.I start Firefox, go to google, and the ipblock gui starts logging
10:24:43.605319 My_List 192.nnn.nnn.1:520 192.nnn.nnn.255:520 UDP Blocked 1 In 10:40:43.546622 My_List 192.nnn.nnn.1:520 192.nnn.nnn.255:520 UDP Blocked 43 In
Here’s my question:
- I’m assuming the ip of my computer is 192.nnn.nnn.5
- and the ip of the switch through which I access the Internet is 192.nnn.nnn.1
How does my connection get to google?
Why doesn’t my computer act as if the internet-cable were disconnected?.
