PeerGuardian - firewall for users file-sharing P2P network

PeerGuardian is a firewall for users file-sharing P2P network that allows you to protect your computer from unauthorized access.

PeerGuardian is a blocker of IP addresses that integrates support for multiple lists, list editing IP addresses and block all connections TCP, UDP, ICMP, etc. After running you need to ensure that the list of blocked addresses is not obsolete. The application utilizes a list of blocked addresses, which is constantly updated. PeerGuardian is compatible with all applications to download files that run on the TCP/IP Protocol. For example, the program can collaborate and protect the following applications: DC++, eMule, LimeWire, Shareaza, etc. Is licensed under the zlib/libpng License and the GNU GPL v3, available for Linux, OS X, and Microsoft Windows.

Initially set multiple address lists with the possibility of renewal. If necessary, you can also connect other lists, which can be found at http://iblocklist.com/lists.php. As you can see, all the lists are sorted into different categories like country, companies owners. In the process, you can dynamically enable and disable as needed lists.

My personal opinion, if you are actively using p2p networks, torrents, this software I would advise to install.

    Personally I use the standard settings, and automatic updates. Everything works fine. With the fonts I'm good. As the screenshots in the article.
