Thread: IP Blocking

  1. #1
    I've done a quick search and no one seems to have mentioned IP BLOCKING

    I use Peer Guardian (free download) and it ROCKS

    I also update weekly using IP BLOCKLIST (also free)

    I get attacked about 6 times every second which this program blocks!

    anyone interested post here

    Maybe you should have done a "not so quick" search.....
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    you get attacked? I have no problem whatsoever with that I think...
    Where and how do you get attacked?
    Am I missing something?

    I also use PG2 and it seems to block SAFENET and DONet like 10,000 times a day. I do get the occasional Warner Brothers and Sony, but the majority of the list consist of the other 2. Any idea why they show up so often? I also get a few international ones that I am not sure what they are.

    You aren't getting attacked.

    Virtually all those requests you see are merely internet "noise"(for lack of a better word). Mostly nothing to be concerned with.
    Just be sure to run a firewall and check for adware/malware and the like. (damn M$!)

    While peer guardian does a great job of blocking particular IPs, I find it slows down my surfing substantially, here in the US anyways.

    btw, it's not full proof.
    I've been sent numerous warning letters from my ISP while using it.

    Letters saying WHAT??

    No one cares here in Britain (shrugs)

    Peer Guardian doesnt appear to slow me down any (maybe a little but can barely notice)

    Letters from HBO, Showtime and various MPAA organizations about illegal files sharing.

    Are you implying you're safe from filesharing because you're in the UK?
    I don't think so. The laws there aren't much different and similar organizations
    are trying to stem filesharers.

    Since Peer guardian blocks advertising & data collecting IPs, pages load slower.

    I used to use PG2, but since I only use IP blocking for the purpose of blocking then for my uTorrent, I just use uTorrent's built-in ipfilter function instead. Either way, it isn't a very effective form of keeping privacy, since the various organizations can just use other IPs.
