ipblock default behavior

so i just installed ipblock, i just wanna know if it blocks certain records and films cartels from seeing what files i share on p2p networks by default or whether i must add anything for it to effectively do this?

u must add filters for it to work, u can manually download them or there should be a tab with the urls to download them from also firestarter uses iptables as its' default firewall and yes ipblock should work fine with it I think.
