I may be wrong, but doesn't K9 allow you to disable this feature?
hy do you need it to block the net after 5 blockings? Is it not possible to for you to shut this off?



Yeah, I thought I would keep it on as an extra layer of protection, but I will take it off now, so this problem is no longer an issue.

I installed the latest version of k9. Unfortunately although its better than the version I had before, there is a problem with it. I have it set to block the internet for 5 minutes if there are 5 blocked pages within 5 minutes. There are many times, where although I am not getting 5 blocked pages it locks me out. I dont know why its happening, but it did not happen with the older version of k9.

The problem with all of this is that I cannot use it without knowing the password. I need to be able to use the internet when I need it, and cannot afford to be locked out. However, if I hold the password there is no point it having the filter at all as I can bypass it too easily.

So does anyone know how I can the previous version? I would really really appreciate the help.


You don't have to set it to do that, but here is an eitzah which I used to use.

I gave a number of copies of the printed pw to a neighbor and had to walk over there  to get it, and they all were aware of my doing this, if I ever needed it. He was not able to work on my computer himself. Then, I burned it or something after making the change or whatever. ( I say "used to" because I cannot rely on K9 anymore, I became too computer savvy for it. But it seems to be appreciated  by almost everyone who has a filter on this forum.) This is not the ideal setup, but is probably much better than nothing for many people.
