    Can pcwrt block only TOR without blocking VPN and Proxy?

    If the router can’t do this, there’s a way for to do it?

    pcWRT cannot block TOR but allow VPN & proxy at the same time. We don’t know of any way to accomplish this either.

    What is your usage scenario?

    I can’t block VPN, there are some basic VPN that i can’t block. For example, once time that i block VPN, my home computer loses synchronization time in Windows. The time is not updated anymore.
    On the smartphones, i have problems with whatsapp and whatsapp web, and also other things like these…..

    But I NEED to block TOR, specifically TOR browser and its network.

    It is possible implement, in a future updated firmware, that is possible to block TOR only?

    @casino For time synchronization, you can white list the NTP server to get around the block. For example, if your Windows PC uses SRV.CS.CMU.EDU as NTP server, you can add the domain name to the “Allowed URLs”. Ref: How to check NTP settings.

    To enable WhatsApp on your phone, you may consider to put it in a separate profile and disable parental control on that profile.

    If you want to enable WhatsApp on a child’s device, while at the same time block VPN, you can check what domains are blocked by viewing the Internet logs in raw mode. Then add the required domains to the white list.

    Tor2web cannot be blocked with a single click. However, you can add the top level domains to the black list, e.g., onion.direct, onion.link etc.

    1). Add time.windows.com and time.nist.gov to the “Allowed URLs” box in the profile. One per line.

    2) & 3): Add these domains to the “Blocked URLs” box in the profile:

    tor2web.org
    tor2web.io
    onion.to
    onion.city
    onion.cab
    onion.direct
    onion.casa
    onion.link
    onion.sh

    Can block entirely “tumblr.com”? Every tumblr site has a different URL, but, for example, with OpenDNS i can block it entirely.
    If i don’t want use opendns, can i block it in pcwrt too?

    I’ve added time.windows.com and time.nist.gov, but nothing, it gives me always error.

    If i unblock VPN, it works.

    Help me.

    @casino Enter tumblr.com in the Blocked URLs box will block all tumblr.com domains.

    For the NTP issue, it’s probably easier just to allow the NTP port: enter :123U in the Allowed URLs box.

    If you have calendars on the profile, you need to create a new Calendar to allow NTP. Add a calendar to allow full-day access, put :123U in the sites box.

    Ok, it works finally! But i have two questions:

    1) Where did you find this “:123U”? What’s this?

    2) If i create a new calendar, it will contrast with my own calendar, or not? What i have to do? Create a new calendar on the same profile where i have another one already?

    @casino

    1). “:123U” means UDP port 123, which is the port used by NTP.

    2). The router allows you to create multiple calendars, each covering different domains. When you create a calendar with no domains listed, the calendar covers all web sites. When you create a calendar with google.com listed in the “Sites” field, then that calendar only covers the Google sites, such as www.google.com, docs.google.com etc. When there are multiple calendars on a profile, the calendar that most closely matches the site being visited wins. However, if you have two calendars both listing the same domain but with different time ranges, then the behavior is not defined.
