Peer block not updating
You need not make any changes in the router setting.
All the blocking mechanism is done by Peer Block software itself.
For this reason alone, we cannot recommend this software – Better solutions are available. Based upon the concept of IP blocking, Peer Block scans your computer for in- and outgoing connections to IPs (Internet addresses) deemed malicious or unwanted, for example because they’re owned to a Hollywood film studio, a known publisher of any kind of copyrighted material, an agency and so on.
A simple VPN service like Hide My Ass is inexpensive and will hide your identity after setting up their service. Also on the list are spyware and advertising companies, which helps block unwanted programs on your computer to annoy you with popups and similar crap. Well, since around 2006 a company named Bluetack provides the standard list, and they come up with the presumably right entries by scanning the Internet for IPs registered by groups or companies considered bad for any reason.
After the installation, Peer Block shows you the options of choosing the type of traffic you want to block. If you want to block a specific range of IP address, then just specify the ‘Description’ and also specify the file where a range get stored and then finally press on ‘Add’ button. Once you click that button, a window will appear where you need to enter the name (description) and the file which you want to include. There are many other functions also that can be performed with Peer Block software.
Some of these are as follows: Leaving everything on your anti-malware is not enough where so much cybercrime is taking place.
By selecting appropriate lists of "known bad" computers, you can block communication with advertising or spyware oriented servers, computers monitoring your p2p activities, computers which have been "hacked", even entire countries!
For better privacy, you can use a VPN while torrenting.
Most of the good bittorrent clients support blocklists – for example Transmission or u Torrent.
It blocks connections to and from hosts specified in huge blocklists (thousands or millions of IP ranges). Compare Vo IP resources, collaborate with IP telephony developers, and use as a resource for all things Asterisk documentation, business Vo IP, PBX, and more.
Its origin seeds in targeting aggressive IPs while you use P2P. However the team is very small and with few spare time.
I-Blocklist has a good selection of blocklists, but many are now “subscriber-only” ($10 / year).
