For several days now, I've seen the words 'IPB image' in posts here instead of the picture in several places including Scarlet's signature. Other pictures show up just fine.

I right clicked on the words and was given the option to view the image. A new tab popped up, and then I saw "ad blocked by KPF." So now I knew that the firewall was blocking those images from appearing and identifying them as ads.

Unlike ZoneAlarm's ad-blocking settings which can be set for each site, Ad-blocking in the Kerio Firewall cannot be adjusted on a site by site basis; it's either on or off. Clicking on the 'set' button in the Kerio Firewall adblocking tab, a window pops up with a list of all the blocked ad types. Does anyone know which of these to allow in order to view the IPB images on Bleeping computer? The only option that I have discovered that works thus far is to stop the ad-blocking completely, but since I navigate to other sites when reading posts or articles on this site, I'm leery of doing that even though my default settings block all scripts.

I managed to solve the problem by clicking on the Set button on the Ad-blocking tab and removing the check marks in front of these two entries:

.*/banners.*
.*/banners/.*
