Isn't it possible to create a sort of ipfilter like that in emule ?

ipfilter to block any range of "dangerous" ip





thanks

Informative topic..

A firewall can do what you want, why bloat DC++ with it?

I agree with Todi. Isn't it better to completely disallow those folks from connecting to your computer and not just DC++?

hi

I use outpost firewall 3.0
but i don't know all the ip and ip-range to filter :shock:
and i have to use probably blockpost plugin

the emule ipfilter is updated weekly, and i only have to download a single file e put it in a folder...
with the firewall i should lose much time to search and insert all the ip with the risk to block also good internet website.

bye

I disrecommend Blockpost, use PeerGuardian instead. But as far as I know, it does not make much difference if you use them or not.

The only thing that kind of program does is to give a false sense of security.

I cannot recommend PeerGuardian, or any other "block list." If you're afraid of getting caught doing something illegal, don't do it. My intuition is that most of the IPs on any blocklist are listed on a whim, with no evidence to back them up, and no effort to remove old entries.

What is security to you? I think you'll find that what you think is security, isn't.

You as a dc user shouldnt have to worry about such things,

Let the hubs banlist do its work.

An just ensure ur client is disconnecting users that arnt connected in any hubs your connected in.

And on the topics of firewalls, i find Sygate Personal Firewall to be the best. You look at many firewalls, and they dont ask\block there own connections for updates, just this alone turns me off any firewall!
