    I'm working on securing some computers from crappy myspace. It appears myspace can be accessed through proxy.

    Is there any simple way to block a computer from using any proxy to access myspace?

    I'd lik to know if it's possible to block all content from this IP address:
    216.178.38.121

    Simply add a firewall and add that IP to the firewall so it doesn't let it come through. Also you could contact your ISP and ask them to block this address for you.

    Thanks. Is there anyway to do it through my router?
    Anybody on my computer can simply shut down the firewall.

    Yes you can do it through the router as well. e.g. if it is a linksys goto your web browser and type 192.168.1.1 (i think that's right), log on to it if you are asked, and find the settings for blocking ip's or proxies and enter that ip in your router.

    TY!
    I'll try it out.

    This will work even if proxies are used to access myspace?
