Anyone have any recommendations? I'm using Transmission for downloading torrents.
cool.. i'll check it out.
transmission has a blocklist feature built in...
it's in your preferences, just turn it on... does the same thing as pg
does vuze have a blocklist feature?
oh niiiice, I have it updated and turned on now. will this prevent my ISP(charter) from tracking my torrent downloads? I recently got a mail from them telling me to stop downloading episodes of True Blood
you can search for methods of encrypting your traffic using your BT client.
as far as hiding your IP address, i don't think you can hide it from the people connected to you. that's how BT works, after all.
The blacklist does very little. If it worked the ISPs wouldn't be getting thousands of subpoenas every day for information about downloaders on BitTorrent.
Yeah, I tried using PG - it just blocks a ton of useful blocks of IPs and so I had to dump it.
Proxies are fairly worthless.
I'd just suggest these rules as far as torrenting goes:
Download from trusted sources: IE - private/subscribed torrent trackers.
Download trusted content: IE - Software is hardly watched by anyone wanting to track you down - Downloading a tiny indie band's album is pretty safe. The new Britney Spears album, however, that's something high on the RIAA's list.
Private trackers offer no extra security. How did all of you get your invites? What keeps someone working for the RIAA/MPAA, etc from getting invited the exact same way?
I've used this and it works well...
never happened before
I don't need car insurance cause I've never been in an accident.
yeah.. and AIM... and Skype... and so on...
