I am using K9 Web Protection at home, which does a great job filtering internet content. Everything is controlled via the web interface which is available at the address . However, everytime a website is blocked, the user is redirected to this page. What I would like to do is that no redirection to the interface happen. That would make any attempt to bypass the program much harder - simply because one would not even know what the program is ! So what are my possibilities ?

Would blocking the port 2372 in the Windows firewall be a workable solution ?

Note :

The web interface looks like this :

One thing that I have tried was to edit the executable k9filter.exe using Resource Hacker. I appended


to the javascript file inside it. However, this causes stability issues. Any help would be highly appreciated.

If K9 does allow for this sort of configuration find software that does. Blocking the port would not change the behavior of K9 in the slighest. – Ramhound Aug 12 '13 at 18:12
I don't know of any program that does as good a filtering as K9 does, unfortunately. – Ismael Lemhadri Aug 12 '13 at 18:13
I would contact K9 on how to disable being redirected to the configuration page. A normal user being redirected to the configuration page does not sound right. I could accept some sort of K9 page, you won't get around that, if I am correct. – Ramhound Aug 12 '13 at 18:21
The page I am redirected to does prompt for a password if I wish to change anything... But that doesn't help me very much. – Ismael Lemhadri Aug 12 '13 at 18:35
If you actually set it to document.location.replace(''); then does setting it to document.location.replace(''); help any? Exactly what kind of "Stability" issues did making this change cause? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Aug 12 '13 at 19:10
