IP Filter Downloader

Recommended Posts

Which one is better? I have added 47 lists for peerblock from i-blocklist. I've also downloaded the ip filter downloader for utorrent. Doest it make sense to use both?

Also, my download speed has decreased since I've installed both these apps.

You don't need 47 lists in most cases, it's overkill. Just use the P2P one that's already provided in Peerblock. That's the only list a common user will need for torrenting. :)

Try allowing HTTP in Peerblock if you face slowdowns.

Using both gives you extra confidence. Either one is helpful, even when standalone. ^_^

I use PeerBlock along with lists from iblocklist.com, which I feel is a much better alternative since you can pick and choose what you want and/or do not want filtered. It is also doing the filtering before it even hits uTorrent or whatever app you're using it in conjunction with. Not to mention... the lists are updated far more frequently. Both methods will block completely safe ip's though and you WILL have slowdown and less connections when torrenting until you get custom lists set up for yourself - which is much, much easier when using PeerBlock.

Thank you so much lol, I really didn't know it was on the front page :P Either ways, what's the difference between Peer Block and IP Filter Downloader?

No problem. :)

IP Filter works build-in torrent client, Peerblock is external application.

IP Filter has not so much number of IPs. Peerblock has a lot (probably false positives too).

IP Filter gets updated rarely (depending on source). Peerblock gets updates every three days or so.

IP Filter is a file of IPs, more than couple of people make it. Peerblock is a program which supports lots of list sources.

IP Filter only works with torrent clients. Peerblock works on system level.

IP Filter doesn't block any good website. Peerblock, thanks to false positives, blocks some things that it shouldn't, like it blocks pinging our forums IP, it stops Steam to run, etc.
