Block website/IP in VPN?

Hi, sorry for the topic spam, I'm not sure where to really put this besides a new thread.

Anyway, I was wondering if it was possible to ban an IP address (and website) from a VPN. I mean at the VPN server itself, so the client never receives the packets. Thanks.

    This can only add Local Routes, ie: devices sharing the same connection, or on the same network.
    Edit: I don't typically use the blackhole command but it seems it can.

    IPTables would have to handle this, I would advise using IPTables.

  • @Jack @netomx thanks, I'll try that once I figure out why some random sites won't resolve (and they ping as General failure)

    @Jacob I tried doing iptables -A INPUT -s iphere -j DROP and it didn't do anything, also tried -A OUTPUT
