[xubuntu] URLs blocked from hosts file still accessible

Posted on: Feb 12 2013 Category :Linux > Ubuntu Views: 744 | Subscribe

Hi all, I am using Xubuntu 11.10I simply cannot understand why the sites blocked in the hosts file are still accessible. In my old laptop it was a very straightforward operation.I know that the hosts file is being read, because localhosts and dan are both redirected to, if I type the following in terminalCode:gedit /etc/hostsThe result isCode: localhost127.0.0.1 dan127.0.0.1 http://vast.adjug.com/ http://www.facebook.com/# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopbackfe00::0 ip6-localnetff00::0 ip6-mcastprefixff02::1 ip6-allnodesff02::2 ip6-allroutersAny idea? Am I editing the wrong hosts file?The only changes to the original hosts are the addition of the lines with the IPs, and I deleted some blank lines, before and after the IPV6 commented line, just to see if it would help.Thank you very much for any tips :)Dan
