How to allow websites in apf?


I would like to add http://www.srf.ch/radio-srf-4-news/player to allow.host.rules, but this address is impossible to convert to IP address (I tried http://www.find-ip-address.org/dns-lookup.php )--I got 208.67.222.222#53, put it on the allow.host.rules, but it doesn't seem to work.

There many websites that do not load--what port should I add to where?

Any advice?

Thanks, Hearthstone.

Not impossible but the IP address you listed is one of Opendns.coms DNS servers.
To get the sites IP addresses try
Code:
host www.srf.ch
or
Code:
dig +nocomments +noquestion +nostats +nocmd -t A www.srf.ch

This one uses Adobe Flash player so go for TCP/80.

I installed guarddog. I found that I am "stealth" according to grc.com, but mutt doesn't work, http://www.srf.ch/radio-srf-4-news/player loads fully now, but still no sound ....

If I were an administrator, I would learn iptables, most likely, but I am but a user with a steep learning curve that gets steeper as I grow older, it would seem (call me lazy). I was using firestarter for years with no problem, only recently I noticed that I was not fully "stealth", and decided to try other front-ends for iptables. Once I figure out how to make everything I use, I'll be OK again--learning iptables would be a bit too much for me. Sorry.

Thanks, Hearthstone.

Latest update:

installed arno-iptables-firewall and only after about three dpkg-reconfigure rounds I am 100% stealth, according to grc.com ... AND--everything works!

What people like me (who are not administrators, just plain users, who learn only the which they really need) is an online Linux Super Computer that would access our PCs from the outside and fix everything that doesn't work. I would not mind contributing--as it is now, I do like to contribute, but there is a myriad of open source projects that I use worthy contributing to--and that I can hardly do. Just a thought ...

Thank you, Hearthstone.

P. S. I really would not like going back to Windows! I have to use them, now-and-then, and I really do prefer Linux (Debian)! H. S.
