Blocking specific websites

Postby atomicchewbacca » Sat Jul 11, 2015 3:57 am

Hello , recently I have been having some issues with a family member visiting websites he shouldn't. I would like to be able to block some specific websites. I can block specific sites with my router, however, it brings up a blocked website page. Is there anyway I can have it not show the block screen and maybe give a connection error or something similar?

I don't think there is a way to change the blocked website page in your router, it's most likely hard coded in the router's firmware.

If it's just one computer that is used to accessed these websites, the you can edit that systems Hosts File. That would display the browsers default "can not connect" error page.

The following link has a step-by-step article on editing your Host File with images.
