    NO MATTER WHAT ANY ONE TELLS YA U CAN NEVER REALLY BE SAFE..WITH 3000000+ USERS ONLINE THE CHANCE OF U GETTIG PULLED UP ARE SLIM TO NONE.THE RIAA SEEM TO BE GOING FOR ALL THE SHARKS IN THE POND,ALL THE LITTLE FISH SEEM TO BE SAFE. A GOOD START WOULD BE THE PRIVACY PATCH...WOT VERSION OF KAZAA U USING? THE LATEST HAS THIS BUILT IN TO IT..UNDER OPTIONS /MOREOPTIONS, TICK THE BOX THAT SAYS BLOCK OTHER USERS FROM GETTING A LIST OF YOUR FILES IS A GOOD START I SUPPOSE...PEER GUARDIAN IS ANOTHER THING THATS SUPPOSED TO WORK,BUT YOU CAN NEVER REALLY TELL AT THE END OF THE DAY

    The best way to be safe is just not to download and uplaoad about 20 GB each day, every day. They only go for people who upload and download huge amounts of it, as they think the best way to stop p2p is by cutting out people who upload the most, but they're wrong.

    The way I look at this problem of being caught is this. No amount of firewalls, Peer Guardian or whatever can stop an official of a legal organization downloading KaZaa as we all have done, searching for any file they fancy and finding who is sharing that file and remember these organizations can afford to employ the best brains in the land to do this. In the mean time keep everything crossed and pray its not you.

    If they use regular Kazaa and something like KazaaSearch and you're behind a router and NOT using KaNAT, then them finding your REAL ip (as opposed to the LAN ip that kazaa reports in SEARCHES) is far more difficult!

    If they're behind a router and/or firewall themselves, it becomes nearly impossible.

    We've been arguing about the problems of being behind a router in the developement and problems forums for over 5 months -- but right now it might be a minor bonus. DOUBLY so if you turn port-forwarding of UDP packets on port 1214 off -- then they can only connect by TCP to you, which further eliminates their options and hurts you little (further) because you're already registered as a firewalled source.

    If you are using kazaa lite, use the privacy patch. Also, use a good SOCKS5 proxy to hide your ip. A SOCKS5 proxy won't help you if your ISP is watching you. If you are worried that the RIAA is watching you through your ISP, you should use a program like Filetopia (www.filetopia.com). Set up filetopia to use a SOCKS5 proxy to hide your IP address. Then configure it to use 448 bit Blowfish encryption. This way when your ISP looks through your log files, all they will be able to see will be encrypted. Blowfish is a great algorithm!

    From what I hear, the best way you can be safe is to wear a condom

    Haven't you heard the saying, "If it's not on, it's not on".

    So just keep a good supply handy and if the RIAA wants to bring Sue around you'll be ready.
