It uses blocklists for the blocking, but IP ranges can also be configured manually. IT BLOCKS ALL KINDS OF INFRINGING IP ADDRESSES AND I LOVE IT.
Pre-cofigured for blocking are RIAA, MPAA and many others. The Program "Peer Guadian for Windows 2000/XP/2003 is dangerous.
Once installed, Peer Guardian updates all IP lists and requests that the user’s personal preferences are set up.
Some of the preferences available for the user are: Once all lists have been selected, downloaded, and updated, set Peer Guardian to launch either at startup or at the user’s request.
Peer Guardian is perhaps the most popular IP blocking software tool on the web.
The Peer2Peer sharing community primarily uses Peer Guardian to block the RIAA, MPAA, and other organizations from tracking a sharer’s IP address and online activity.
It knows which IPs to block, because it comes with several IP lists of known IP offenders.
These lists are updated just about every day in order to keep up with any new or changing IP addresses.
This is the error I get when my Peer Block starts at boot time. Everything installs and updates, but for some reason its not blocking anything and i can't figure it out.However, earlier operating systems such as Windows ME and 98 only block TCP.Peer Guardian 2 is extremely safe to use and, for the most part, does not require lots of memory or processing power to run.It seems like it is linked to ip address and should reset just like it did in the past.It is NOT financially worthwhile subscribing to i-blocklist, IMHO, because their main lists are sourced from Bluetack, who are no longer updating their lists.The only list I have is P2P so I don't know why I'm receiving this, unless of course this is a paid list. In order to obtain updates from now, delete all existing lists (except permallow) before running the Peer Block 'update' function. They could provide one basic free anti P2P list and rest for the subscribers, instead of charging for everything. iptables rules look normal and pgl chains is where they supposed to be. Is all of this happening to me at the same time a conspiracy? Peerguardian is still updating and blocking stuff for me on another linux distro it was already previously installed on though so its curious for me. beats 60 a month for a vpn Judging by your post in another thread you have a good grasp of the trade-offs involved. even though alot of the blocklists were much much more encompassing in the past and for w/e reasons are not as much now, I still feel the 9.99 for a year is well deserved.My computer, running Windows 7, stores these lists in the directory - C:\Program Files\Peer Block\lists There is no way to identify the download url's on the I-Blocklist site, but the ones I was using before this problem arose are still working for me at the moment - [list.iblocklist.com] [list.iblocklist.com] [list.iblocklist.com] [list.iblocklist.com] [list.iblocklist.com] [list.iblocklist.com] [list.iblocklist.com] [list.iblocklist.com] [list.iblocklist.com] The Bluetack lists (e.g. So they're probably done, because hardly anyone will pay for some lists, if there is a better way of spending money - VPN. subscription-based services, which no one uses anymore, because of free competition. For readers of this message who may be unaware of the issues a "good" VPN gives "perfect" anonymity PB, by contrast, blocks only "known" IPs [and then only when constant updating is done on the list(s) being used] so apparenlty i was wrong. You can get alot of their lists on other websites although i'm not gonna post where. I'd only get a vpn if I already had trouble with law enforcement, a criminal organization, my isp, or in an oppressive country, but I'm not and never have so a vpn is not worth the money to me.Q: Is peerguardian protecting me on piratebay, and are the movies hash files?A:peerguardian is ok in theory, but I don't think it's really giving you any type of security.A must have for a P2P (Ka Zaa, Direct Connect, i Mesh, Lime Wire, etc.) users. While attempting to download the software, Windows XP warned me of danger and stopped the download.hey guys just wanted to know if i use peer guardian,ghost surf,and hide my ip all at the same time will it help alot in p2p file sharing to help protect me from everyone you know everyone that is ........ Highly a question for all u pros at this, im using limewire and all i wanna do is not get caught if i download something not copyrighted, so can someone tel me what to do cuz i dont know which settings to change and all that.rale0n YOU RIAA MOTHER F****, FAKING UP YOUR PROBLEMS WITH PEERGUARDIAN. I HAVE USED THIS PROGRAM ON 100'S OF SYSTEMS AND HAVE NEVER NEVER SEEN THIS ERROR YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. Foolishly I ignored the warning, and continued anyway.
