Internet / Filters / Lists
On this page you can create and edit the lists needed in order to use internet filters and prioritization rules.
Click on the "Apply" button to save your settings. If you leave the page without saving, all of your changes will be discarded.
In the FRITZ!Box you can set up filter lists according to your own needs. You can create a whitelist and a blacklist, which you can configure to allow or block access to websites. Both lists are empty in the FRITZ!Box factory settings.
The lists are enabled in the access profiles for parental controls. Either the blacklist or the whitelist is activated in an access profile. A filter list is applied to all network devices that use an access profile in which the filter list is enabled.
Permitted Web Sites (Whitelist)
- Enter on the whitelist the web pages to which access it to be permitted.
- A whitelist makes sense when only a few websites are supposed to be allowed, but access to most websites is to be blocked.
- Network devices that use an access profile with a whitelist enabled can only open the websites that have been entered in the whitelist. All other websites are blocked.
- An empty whitelist has no effect. This does not mean that no websites can be accessed. If a device is to have no access to the internet, then assign the "Blocked" access profile to that device.
- You can enter a maximum of 500 web addresses in the whitelist.
Click on "Edit" to open and edit the whitelist.
Blocked Web Sites (Blacklist)
- Enter in the blacklist the websites to be blocked.
- A blacklist makes sense when access to most websites is to be allowed, and only a few websites are to be blocked.
- Network devices that use an access profile with a blacklist enabled can not open the websites that have been entered in the blacklist. All other websites can be opened.
- You can enter a maximum of 500 web addresses in the blacklist.
- Network devices that use an access profile with a blacklist enabled can no longer open websites directly via their IP address. This can lead to problems when there are applications on a network device that work with IP addresses rather than DNS names. It can happen that these applications no longer work reliably, for instance because no more updates are installed. For such cases there is the "Permitted IP addresses" list, in which you can except certain IP addresses from the filter.
Click on "Edit" to open and edit the blacklist.
Permitted IP Addresses
When a blacklist is enabled in an access profile, the FRITZ!Box registers whenever websites are opened directly via their IP addresses, and enters these IP addresses in the "Permitted IP addresses" list. The FRITZ!Box enters the IP addresses in the list, but does not release them. If you would like to release IP addresses so that they can be opened directly, you must release the IP addresses in the list individually.
The "Network Applications" list contains the network applications that are available for creating prioritization rules and for setting up child protection. To create a prioritization rule, select from the list the network application whose use you would like to regulate. To set up parental controls, select from the list the network applications you would like to block.
- Click on the "Add Network Application" button to add other network applications to the list.
- Use the button for editing an entry to change the protocol and the ports used by application.
- Use the button for deleting an entry to remove network applications from the list.
The network applications preset in the list, "Internet telephony" and "Surfing", can be neither edited nor deleted.
