Is It Possible?

To completely stop the use of p2p downloading programs on a network in my home?

Basically i want to stop anyone in the house from using any p2p software for downloading, is there a program i can put on one computer to monitor the rest and stop them from using the programs?

Or is there something i can do with the router to stop them being accessed?

Any help would be great thanks

You could block the ports being used by the programs in the router setup but if the port can be changed in the program they may be able to get round this...

If you want to block any of these app's - then you can try these ports...
Azureus 6881 to 6889 TCP, UDP
DC++ 411, 1025 to 32000 TCP, UDP
Limewire 6346 to 6347 TCP, UDP

If not, take a look at the rest of this list and see if you can find the prog!

Port blocking is pretty ineffective tbh. All they need to do is find ANY open port and map their client to that. For example 110, 25, 80, 21 etc...... If you block those you screw everything up :lol:

its easier to block all ports on the router and disable it's uPNP function, then open the ones that will be definitely required ie port 80, this will baffle many kids(not all) but remember to password the routers page effectively.
most kids using p2p will want to do other things and this will stop that and make it less attractive to use the p2p

A large piece of 2 x 4. If you catch anyone downloading using p2p then go at them with it :p

The one problem with blocking p2p completely is that some genuine applications use it. I believe 4od is one of them (dont know if this has changed recently?)
