Can I Be Safer?

vbimport

#1

I’m running Azareus with PeerGuardian2 in the background. Do I need to configure Az differently than default for added security?


#2

I’d use the SafePeer addin function as well, having created a file using BlockList Manager.

Alternatively don’t download anything illegal. :bigsmile:


#3

Of course, nothing illegal…thought of it never crossed my mind

I installed the plugin, anything I need to do or is default install good enough?

I’m also running zonealarm.

Boy, this azureus program is MILES better than Bittorrent…

u should try uTorrent w/ the ipfilter.dat…works good and is lean…:slight_smile:

I’d also recommend that.

ZoneAlarm is fine.

With SafePeer I use a IP filter file created by BlockList Manager in PeerGuardian format.
I needed to edit the safepeer.properties file to point to my file.

The relevant part of that file is here:-

The primary DB URL -> only one URL
