More safety? Outgoing forced, NO legacy incoming allowed

Recommended Posts

I know, this will make my downloads slower, but:

the laws here in germany for filesharers become harder.

will this settings increase my safety?

or is there a better way, I still use a fresh ipfilter.dat too.

all ISP's in germany have to store their traffic-logs for 6 months,

what would you do in this case?

No, because what is hindering the GVU ("Famous"German antipiracy organisation) to use this settings also?!

Neither would this settings, nor the use of ipfilter.dat prevent you from anything!

"THEY" can also use just a simple normal residential dynamic t-online IP to track you!

"what would you do in this case?"

Nothing different than before! "THEY" will not win!

And of course I don't DL stuff that is not ment to be DL'ed ;-)

Sure "THEY" can track me, but if they can't read my traffic?

filesharing is not forbidden, it's a question of the content.

but maybe I see ghosts!

and of cousre, I only download privat holiday-videos, freeware and music from free gregorian churchchoruses ;-)

Yeah they can, by doing exactly what they've always done: connecting to you, downloading some copyrighted data from a torrent you're on, then screwing you.

how do they know, on which torrent I am on, if everything is encrypted

or is not anything encrypted,

I thought, the protocol-header shows only the IP of the tracker, the rest is encrypted, or am I wrong?

They dont care about encryption, neither they care about catching someone specific. They just find that torrent the same way you found it, start downloading it, log the IP's of the peers and the time of the connection, go to the ISP-s and tell them to kick the users asses.

Um, because they join public torrents, find your IP and connect to you. You'll prolly be fine on private sites, unless that site's been "infiltrated" too.

No, they don't. :| They can grab your IP *just* by downloading a torrent and joining the swarm, irrespective of whether there is Encryption present or not. Nothing illegal about that. :/ Do I hate those organizations? Hell yes! :mad: But the Encryption scheme was not put into place to stop those groups, its primary purpose is to make it hard for ISP's to detect BitTorrent traffic so that people can bypass traffic shaping (throttling).

It's not really illegal for them to do it (after all, they are either law enforcement, or people working under permission of the copyright holder, so they CAN get the content legally).
