comment ad blocking host file, shared to all computers on local network
Yeah, I did set up a temporary local web server and got a black screen for a while but I kinda like to see that banner space at the top or down the side of a web page saying how the ad couldn't be loaded. :-) Also, if I use some outside source list, I may loose out from discovering who does what and why I might want to block or not block something if some third party is already blocking it.

I do want to avoid the extra box running but on the other hand it would give me other filtering options than just blocking by domain names. State-full packet inspection could be handy.

I don't know about ipcop or pfsense but I used smoothwall before. That is definitely another box running with two or more NIC's installed. My bedroom/computer lab is too warm to add another computer to leave running 24/7, which it would have to be if everything on the network uses it.
