"MoBlock is an open source application for the Linux platform that allows you to manage connections to and from your computer. If you have used or heard of the program PeerGuardian, MoBlock has a pretty similar function. The project caters to advanced Linux users and allows them fine-grain control over which hosts are allowed to connect to your computer and which hosts can be connected from the machine. We'll look at how to install, configure and monitor MoBlock on your Linux machine.

"Installation

"01 The installation of MoBlock is pretty straightforward for users of Ubuntu Linux. Ubuntu has had MoBlock available in its package management systems for some time now. You will need to add a new set of repositories to download and install MoBlock and the other supporting tools with 'apt-get'. As a first step, you need to add GPG keys."
