[HOW TO] uTorrent , Vuze - torrent more safely with BlockLists


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, here is a way you can secure your torrenting a bit more, and maybe speed it up a bit also by blocking malicious peers that will transmit junk data (anti-P2P groups) or peers that may be intrusive on your net privacy (and report you to ur ISP)... BTW I recommend (on recommendation of DblD) using Vuze over utorrent/bitorrent.


IPFiltering - An ipfilter list is a simple (but usually very large) list of addresses and ranges of malicious peers that will transmit junk data (i.e. anti-P2P) or peers that may be intrusive on your net privacy.

To setup IPFiltering here is an awesome guide created by TimeBandits . It contains all the essential info to get you started.

1. Download the filter list file - (latest 2015)

Kickass torrent



2. BItorrent / utorrent

* Drop ipfilter.dat into C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\utorrent... replacing file already in folder.

* For updating the ipfilter list in µTorrent:

1. Download the file to C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\utorrent.

2. Open uTorrent

3. Click Options

4. Click Preferences

5. Click Advanced

6. Make sure ipfilter.enable = true

If ipfilter.enable was false you will have to restart uTorrent after changing it to true.




3. Vuze

- for vuze, open prefernces, ip filters tab...

Just use the auto-load function (above) to load the .dat files with the blocklists in.
