Ive setup a VM containing windows 10 Pro, but i would like to blacklist centrain dns entries and ip v4/v6 addresses. ive searched for bridged networks but did not found any matching solution.

is a virtual network interface a correct solution? and if yes how do i blacklist those connections?

My Goal is to prevent windows 10 from gathering data without installing an tool in win10

Host: Ubuntu 18.04 kernel 5.0.0-37-generic AMD x1950 16-core 16 GB RAM

Guest: Windows 10 Pro 8 virtual cores 4 GB RAM Nvidia GTX 750 (Passthrought)

If you know the IP addresses you want to block, you can use the built-in Windows Firewall to filter the traffic.

You can either do it using the GUI (wf.msc) or with netsh.exe advfirewall or PowerShell New-NetFirewallRule.

If you don't know the IP address, and want to block by hostname, you could do so using the Windows hosts file (or the client DNS server if it is under your control).

  • while searching for an list of win 10 spy hosts ive found a nice tool that does not reqiere an install: WindowsSpyBlocker works like a charm an does the same as you suggested – Basur Jan 13 at 17:27
