Re: Blocking Websites does not work

Install a Hosts file and enable it  e.g. https://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm 

A Host file editor will allow you to add new entries to it when needed e.g.  https://hostsfileseditorplus.weebly.com/ 

The browser will not go into websites that are in the Hosts file.

Open a Command Shell or Terminal and post the result of nslookup discord.com here.

Re: Blocking Websites does not work

The results show that Web Safe is not blocking access to discord.com and moot.us. Issue has been flagged to the forum team who are best placed to look at this further; be aware it can take them a few hours / days to respond. Whilst you wait can you do a nslookup nordvpn.com which should be blocked.

FYI: with Web Safe on and websites discord.com and moot.us blocked, nslookup should return the following, or similar, results:

$ nslookup discord.com 194.168.4.100
Server:		194.168.4.100
Address:	194.168.4.100#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:	discord.com
Address: 81.99.162.48
Name:	discord.com
Address: 2a02:8801:200:1::1

$ nslookup moot.us 194.168.4.100 
Server:		194.168.4.100
Address:	194.168.4.100#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:	moot.us
Address: 81.99.162.48
Name:	moot.us
Address: 2a02:8801:200:1::1

NB each lookup returned 81.99.162.48 indicated that Web Safe had been triggered to block access to the websites.
