    Well according to http://www.ipp2p.org/

    IPP2P is not supported any longer. Please check OpenDPI.org!

    So I guess that would be a start.

    Actually, I found Layer 7 DPI apps to do a very good job in the times I was in change of a neighbourhood net.

    In that time was about prioritizing, not blocking, i.e. allow BT/kazaa, etc, but only in the spare bandwidth giving priority for SIP, HTTP(S), game protocols, etc.

    The only problem was having a machine to cope with 100 mbps, huge line 7 years back and not so powerful cheap computers, in the end did a pretty good job, after a month or so of tweaking, had a setup where everyone could do everything at decent speeds, so much so that ppl said, well, we dont need so much bw anymore :P

    Protocol obfuscation can work to a point, but there are adaptive, learning apps today that check for patterns of big loads, many connections on random ports and limit the IP overall, not only some traffic in case protocol obfuscation is used.

    Just set reasonable bandwidth limits and people will not use torrents, or at least not much.

    if so what could be blocking the tracker?

    hello .

    my vps in usa. and the hosting provider does not allow violating the DMCA. because my vps suspend due to one of my client downloaded using bittorrent.

    I am afraid you cannot block it in a VPS, you need a firewall with DPI and a learning app before it.

    Even so, you cannot block anyone from connecting to swarms, there is a delay in which a few packets pass in case of protocol obfuscation before the block occurs due to the time needed for the layer 7 filtering application to recognize the pattern.

    If you can put a firewall and filtering before the VPS IP, you can block your customer from uploading, because will not be enough packets to form a chink so the customer will not be able to announce he has the file for sharing (which is actually what the DMCA settlement lawyers are actually looking for).

    autokill kill the torrent client(s) via cron ? and/or make a hosts entry to 127.0.0.1 for the popular public trackers ?

  • it does, but you can just rename and recompile the executable and it will remain stealthy.

    Only thing that cannot really be hidden is the traffic, obfuscated or not, it still follows unmistakeable patterns, a really good DPI/L7 application will learn to detect.
