The Blocklist Manager also includes some built in IP tools. These include an IP Configuration utility, an IP Range Calculator and a Netmask List.
The Blocklist Manager has the ability to import from custom sources also. Along with this, it has a built in Inclusions/Exclusions manager.

This can be useful if there is a web site that is blocked and you want it unblocked you can just add the IP address of the website to the Exclusions manager.

Version: Blocklist Manager 2.7.7
I've used Blocklist Manager for 3 years i love it.
I wish blocklist manager had something that could really show you that its really blocking things out, Eventhough i know it is blocking if it were to stop i would never know it.
Blocklist Manager is one of those programs that doesn't conflict with other softwares you have installed, Which means its added protection. Its not a firewall but its close to it.

I recently had to uninstall Blocklist Manager, Reason: Every time i went to open the software a windows installer box would appear, Not sure what the cause was. But i reinstalled the program and the same result happened so i just decided to uninstall Blocklist Manager for good. I've been using Peer Block for about 9 months now which is a similar software to Blocklist Manager and i really don't think i need them both. Blocklist Manager was an excellent software but the way its designed you really don't know for sure if its doing anything. Peer Block blinks whenever it blocks something and i like that, I prefer to know when a software is doing its job.
