Blocking IP addreses

Recommended Posts

I am a member of a specialist invite only tracker, which relies on the goodwill, courteous behaviour, and reciprocation.

As with most things that a voluntary that require feedback and time, there are always a few that technically do not break the rules but ignore the "spirit " of the community. Is there anyone who knows of a way of blocking individual IP addresses without impairing the functions of utorrent?

I have tried peer guardian and peer block, these have a deleterious effect on µTorrent . I would appreciate any advice on this agitating issue

Thank you. It worked and I was able to block the offending Leecher. I then mailed him asking him to change his ways. I got no reply and assumed that was it. However he has connected again what I thought was a different IP address. I went through the procedure again, but when I attempted to put in the utorrent-roaming folder, it was rejected. I ended up deleting the torrent as he is taking up 90% of my bandwidth and about the same amount of data. Any ideas to how I can block him permanently

why don't you just put an uploadlimit on the file?

other question. Does the ip filter help against these kind of tricks?

.

Nothing would please me more than putting a limit on his uploads. Please tell me how. I suspect he is using a seed box because of the large amount of data he is uploading. In addition, I have been monitoring him the stats being displayed from torrents he leeches off are always a ratio 1. This is incorrect as I calculated he had uploaded over 5gig from a 1.54 gig torrent I seeded add to that his download of 1.54 gig and his ratio is well over 3 yet it reads as 1.

I am seeding now and he has taken over 90% of my bandwidth. He is not even displaying an IP address, because when you click the resolve ip the numbers remain the same 1.64.39.78, then static navigator.com, the client is Xunlei/0.1.0.0 port 119. The other puzzling aspect is, he has always shown up as connectable, and so his must have forwarded his ports, which requires a static IP address? . Any theories, from the info given as I have a backlog of boxing fights to upload and lots of them are personal requests , which I have invested a great deal of time encoding , capping and altering the formats .

Ironic I create 3 to 4 torrents per week m, which is on average 8/10 gig yet he benefits more in terms of ratio; on the positive side I create a lot of goodwill and respect.

Yours hopefully

Hello Nessus,

my symptoms were almost identical to yours, but my opponent was drawing effectively all of my 700kB/s ul; the uT admin solution was to enter the offending IP into the IPfilter and that seems to have done the trick (but i wonder whether he appeared in other guises, such as re-appearing as two IP's).

your opponent seems more resourceful. just curious how it turned out for you. (most of the technical terms that you used are unknown to me, btw)
