Tracking Protection Lists with a text editor! RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • How do you make these?

    Well, I've been doing a lot of research into tracking protection lists, but I haven't yet found anything that tells you how to make them manually... I think this is how to do it, but I'm just inferring from this one.

    Where %s.# is a string:

    • +d %s.1                Allow all requests to domain %s.1
    • +d %s.1 %s.2       Allow requests to domain %s.1 where the rest of the url includes %s.2
    • + %s.1                  Allow requests where, other than the domain, the url includes %s.1
    • -d %s.1                 Block all requests to domain %s.1
    • -d %s.1 %s.2        Block requests to domain %s.1 for files where the url includes %s.2
    • - %s.1                   Block requests where, other than the domain, the url includes %s.1

    I have no idea whether this is right, and if anybody corrects this list I will modify it. Please help!

    Edit: I've finally found the answer. Please see https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh273399(v=vs.85).aspx for the correct information. This also states the method of self-deployment. You could schedule a task to run a webpage that, upon load, ran the script to immediately prompt the user for the TPL upon first logon.

  • Hi,

    you can use the built-in editor to manage your own personal lists IN THE REGISTRY.

    you cannot use a text editor as the registry entries are binary.

    I cannont find any documentation about publishing your own lists on iegallery... I presume you need to submit them to iegallery. You could export them to a reg file from your registry to distribute them on your home network.

    I have discovered a way using JavaScript and hosting pages on localhost - using the same code as on iegallery - to add a list to client computers in the same way as iegallery; with a prompt. What I am asking here is for documentation, if anybody has any.
