How to block torrent download in sonicwall tz190


BitTorrent is a torrent downloading client used to download
music, video and game files for free.

BitTorrent can really eat up bandwidth, which can be mighty
frustrating, especially if you're sharing a computer and an Internet connection
with someone who's using BitTorrent.

If he's not willing to stop using BitTorrent, there are a
few steps you can take to block this demanding program.



Switch your Internet service to an Internet service provider (ISP) that is
hostile to BitTorrent. RCN, for example, is known to block BitTorrent traffic.

Try blocking all ports from 6881 to 6999 on your system.

You must first add a port before you can block it. Click
"Control Panel" and then "Network and Internet
Connections."

Click "Firewall Settings," and select the
"Exceptions" tab.


Click the "Add Ports" button. Enter the port
number you want to block, and click "OK" to save your changes.

Navigate to the "General" tab in the "Windows
Firewall" section, and remove the check mark from the port you just
created.

That port is now blocked and cannot be used by BitTorrent.


Unfortunately, performing this procedure 118 times is
somewhat time consuming, but it is one of the few ways known to block
BitTorrent.




If someone is using BitTorrent on your computer, don't
allow him access to it.

If he's using BitTorrent on his own computer, you may have
to buy your own machine to avoid conflict.

If the Internet is slow on your computer because
he's downloading via BitTorrent on his own machine, consider using a public
Wi-Fi point such as a library or coffeehouse.

Why can Networked Devices not be used when a VPN connection is active?


With most VPNs, as soon as the VPN connection is established, it will take precedence over all other network connections. Access to the Internet (other than to keep the VPN connection itself alive) will go via the VPN and the corporate network you are connected to, rather than the local ISP. Furthermore, access to the local network is temporarily disabled.

As a result, your local print server may not be accessible,
you cannot use devices via the Network USB hub, or the USB ports on your router (if it has these), you may not even be able to access your local router's configuration page or ping the router or other machines in the local network.

This is done because of security reasons.
When a computer is connected to a corporate network via a VPN, the administrator needs to make sure that that machine can not act as a some form of a gateway enabling other machines in the local network to access that corporate network in any way. For that reason, the machine connecting via the VPN must temporarily be isolated from the local network.

Internet connction problm due 2proxy ser er


  1. Get Azureus from azureus.sourceforge.net. (You need to have Java installed on your machine first.)
  2. Run and configure Azureus:
    • Skip any updates, because they rely on torrents.
    • Set your proficiency level to Intermediate, so you can change the encryption settings later.
  3. Go to Tools -> Options -> Connections -> Transport Encryption, and require encryption.
  4. Under Mode, set your proficiency to Beginner. (Beginner has all the options you'll ever need as a downloader.)
  5. Restart Azureus, and let it do any updates it deems necessary.

I cannot use utoorent to download


By using the proxy gateway you havce not cracked the forti guard, you just found a loophole, that is different from cracking or hacking the system.

You can use freely the Internet and bypass proxyguard by using freegate proxy, but you wont be able to use a torrent fileshare , as this needs opening a port directly on the server, and you do not have access to server.

I have done daministration on a system protected By Bess system, and I can assure you there is noway to access to the gateway and change permissions if you are not an administrator.

How can i block torrent download with asa 5505 firewall????????


It is not possible to block the BitTorrent protocol, as the client applications have the ability to use different port numbers.  I suggest one of the following courses of actions:
1)  Added deny entries to your outbound access-list that block the specific IP addresses of the torrent trackers.  For example: tracker.thepiratebay.org = 77.247.176.145
tv.tracker.thepiratebay.org = 77.247.176.154
tracker.mininova.org = 87.233.147.137

2)  Re-configure your outbound access-lists to allow only services required for business activities.  For example, allow only http, https, and ftp, instant messaging from all your network.  Allow only dns from your DNS servers.  Allow only smtp from your mail server.

Port forwarding only applies when you have a router.
You're on a PC with a direct link to internet.
So... there must be a software firewall, like the one in windows? disable it.
Try again...
I'm not familiar with nokia 5310... does it create a lan connection? or is just like some other regular modem?!
maybe your operator is blocking that kind of traffic.
