P2P questions

Hey, Im new if you cant tel from the questions ive posted. I do have lots of experiance with the net. But not much in the way of P2P, and the setup of a router. I use Winmx, and Mirc…Sometimes it works on mirc sometimes it doesnt…I have heard this is a router issue with ports and what not. How would i check/cure this… Also, i have read several places that ppl who share are the ones getting hung out to dry with the law… If this is true how do you protect yourself from this? And can someone recomend what programs are better for P2P. Thanks

A lot of people will tell you there is nothing you can do to STOP PRYING EYES but i will go on to say download peerguardian!!!

also download the latest updates!!!

Always remember some protection is better than none!
