Public blocking address


#1

as great as it is having blocking address in the host file it would efficient to block rather than redirect to local
by using 0.0.0.0 insted of 127.0.0.1

idk if this would improve anything or if its more problematic. but was a thought i had.

Interesting. I too never really gave this much thought. I think this will actually come in handy once the VPN function is added to the script. This way users who block public trackers can keep additional created users from routing local VPN traffic in a way that allows them to use the publics anyway.

Thanks for this, certainly is interesting and I think this info will come in handy.
