As the title says, I need a blocker (both commercial/non-commercial) to block webistes and apps on Mac, Windows, iPhone and iPad. I've been using Focus (heyfocus.com) for the past couple days and so far I am very pleased but the only problem is that it only works on Mac, nothing else.

I am preparing for my CCIE and I need to focus, I mean REALLY focus on my labs/studies. And NO I have no self discipline, I get distracted very easily. :(

 

Any suggestions?

This is some funny ###### ;)  Dude just stay off the net for a few hours a day ;) Did you pass the written and just doing practice labs, or you still have to take the written... Good luck!

Not sure, but this might work

 

Unplug your router from the wall. Now Take a pare of scissors and cut the end off the power cord. All solved!

Hello,


Have you checked with your security software vendor to see if they offer parental controls, web filtering or something similar?  Another possibility might be a third-party DNS provider like OpenDNS that provides category- or rules-based blocking.

@BudMan, thanks man and no I haven't taken the written just want to start doing some labs and go for the exam sometime late next year or early 2021 we'll see how it goes. And from feb next year there is no written part anymore for the CCIE, you just go and do the lab and you're CCIE, which is great imo.

 

Yeah, if I had that will power I would have disconnected from the Internet long ago :D

 

@goretsky, if I am not mistaking Eset offers parent control and that means I have so involve someone else.

With applications like heyfocus.com or freedom.to you block either a URL or an app in Mac/Windows/iPhone for a certain amount of time and there is no way to undo that during the said time so I was wondering if someone has used something similar or one of these apps and have some inputs to share.
