It seems as though my computer is blocking lots and lots of IP's from University of California, Office of the President. I always delete every file on the p2p network programs and place the actual file on windows, so should I still be having a problem with people trying to connect with my computer over such files?

Well this is my point. I have nothing in bit torrent and this as been the case for at least 2 weeks.

Ape thinks it may just be because servers have not been updated. It could be I guess but two weeks for an update seems a long time.

Anyway whoever it is they are being blocked so nothing to worry about.

And anyway its not like I have the truth regarding Dulce is it??

Oops!

Regards

Paul

I put peer guardian on the computers in our home. I was absolutely amazed at how many connections we were getting. At one point, over 7000 hits a second on our router, while running a torrent program.

We use a torrent client and soulseek on a few computers.

It took a few weeks to get the numbers down to a manageable size. Now, it's just a few dozen an evening while running stuff.

Yer I got Amsterdam from another source also. But then another 3 gave me Croatia. So I started playing with the class B address, All gave me Croatia..

Croatia is my flavour of the day.
Try another source, most will say Croatia

"Hope" there are a number of screen snapshot programs. A good, free multiuse program is Irfanview. Downlad and install. open it. Click on 'Options' at the top and then click capture/screenshot. Leave the program open and flip back to the desired screen. Use the assigned button to capture and save the screenshot.

Im guessing most hits were legitiment torrent searches, from numerous clients.

Dont be paranoid, especially if your using torrents, gaming networks, etc..

Im suspecting if you went over your 7000 with this program that the originator used, not only would they be coming from NASA, CIA, NSA, IANA, CSI, FBI, WBM, WB, PRNK, .. .. MOON..

Seriously, who cares.. Scan your pc, no keylogger, no worries..

I would be more worried about what Microsoft is installing on your PC without you knowing..


Takes off Propella hat.. Enjoy

Or press Alt+PrtScn

Back when, we used to track down and report everyone who port scanned us with their ISP.

Now, I just look at the attempt logs. We have a pretty elaborate hardware firewall. A lot of new and upcoming script kiddies download port scanners and make these huge sequential sweeps - easy to see.

Interestingly, you see a lot of them in the Netherlands, one or two ISPs accounts for maybe half the juvenile probing I catch.

I only get interested about the ones that are trying to attack the firewall with malformed packets and the like. We get about one a week.

Thanks for all the replys, you guys seem to have a good idea what your on about so I have to say my original concern as seomwhat declined.

I have managed to get a screen capture though just to proove it really was saying MOD. I havent had any attempts now for a few hours so hopefully its all over.

The whole thing as really opened my eyes up to how unsecure the internet really is. kind of worrying really, and like what smokeyjo said. What are the real big corperations like Microsoft up to and what can anyone really do about it??

Well you know,

Every time I ever get on a peer 2 peer program file sharing, or get on a bittorrent network, or anything of that nature, my IP blocker starts lighting up with all kinds of weird IP addresses.

Different Governments from across the GLOBE.. Poland, places in Africa, I've had UAE, i've had China, i've had South Korea, Russia too.

and of course some American Military Bases would pop up occasionally.

I have an explanation, possibly. Since the IP blocker blocks all the government and military IPs, anyone connected to a p2p network or a bittorrent network from a govt or military network (even a wireless one) who tries to download from you will be unable to and then you'll receive a blocked msg on your IP blocker for that country or agency.

Sometimes they ARE looking through shared folders ..

Bleh, they're all the same IP addresses with different ports lol.

Anyway, what can one do about it?
Not use windows.

I use PG and its just blocking known anti P2P sites and governments.

If you use P2P, someone at a government place may have been trying to download off you. If you dont use P2P, he may have been trying to download off someone who used to have your IP address.

Its nothing special, Ive had all those hits too. The best one was the President of Lithuanias office trying to get something off me.

At the time you're seeing the MOD show on your block list, what sites are you looking at, or what programs do you have open?

Well to be honest apart from P Guardian I only had the web running. To be honest I was looking at 2 sites this morning (both legal!) ATS and Google news.

Cheers

Yeah but if someone was using bittorrent and then closed their connection. You log on with their ip and the people on the swarm try to connect to you to get the file.

Now its different if you have a static ip address.

To say this lightly ... not being behind a hardware firewall and or something that preforms nat ... network address translation is like dangling your feet in a very unsafe pond... in the early days of rr.. meep meep we could sometimes see nodes in network neighborhood. So a good idea is to put yourself on a small local network that nat filters and blocks broadcasts that go hunting for open doors. Software will never do the job of a properly configured router.

The gaming networks are killers. My youngest son (24 years) and friends set up a network in the basement and have at it. At these times, we can have 15 computers up and running. They kill the band width with their crap.

As far as legitimate hits, PG knocked out about 90% at that time. Many, many fine educational institutes trying to connect. I see more of them trying to connect with soulseek than torrents. (Just a side note for the kids in college, keep up the good grades!)

I elected to stop reading the blocked attempts 2 years ago for my sanity.
Just ignore the back drilling snoops if you plan on having any fun online.

I've got stories that would curl you hair that date back to 1996 over the squirrel nest on my computers. Today I just laugh over the high costs I've averaged
to stay connected. I'm lucky to have one operational computer that last longer than 6 months.
