    I configured Vuze to download the filter automatically from http://emulepawcio.sourceforge.net/ipfilter.zip every 7 days .

    Does IP filter give any security? They can log my IP without direct connection and they can use IP outside of blocked range.

    It's not perfect at all, but it's a decent and easy to implement protective measure.

    From what I've read these ip blocking measures now have become nearly pointless.. sorry for resurrecting dead threads.. but especially if im not using public trackers (without a vpn) just private ones... correct?

    As long as blocklists continue to be updated, I wouldn't call it pointless. A lot of people use IP filters and a VPN, but the former was never bulletproof, just a good additional security measure.

    Also, private trackers aren't the safe haven of piracy you might think, especially not nowadays. Germans couldn't download from the oh so elite SCC without getting a "strike" from copyright agencies. Other stories of people getting warnings for their activity on the (concededly less elite) IPT and TL abound; in one instance the tracker in question was even mentioned by name.

    It's a safe bet that most private trackers are infiltrated to some degree. Finding invites isn't that hard, and they've all had open signups at some point. Remember the 2007 MediaDefender leaks? Those guys were active on several invite-only sites, with residential IPs, "normal" e-mail addresses and a snatchlist you wouldn't look twice at.

    Depends on your OS. P2PFire only works on Windows 2000, XP and 2003. PeerBlock supports more modern systems. Unfortunately both are unmaintained nowadays, so personally I just use the IP filtering feature built in to most major P2P programs.

    You can also block addresses by adding invalid entries to your routing table, but that method isn't very friendly and doesn't scale well.

    I can't believe I-Blocklist still has an annual subscriptions thing. It's been decades
    Are there any better sources nowadays tho?

    After googling i've came across a few interesting links:
    BT_Blocklist Github

    OISDl this one is primarily for DNS&AD Blockers tho.

    IpFilterX also charges for all of their blocklists, but what are you going to do. The real question is how come Bluetack is still credited for regular updates to the level 1, 2 and 3 lists when they've ceased operations a long time ago.

    Try this special sauce.

    Thanks! Actually, how do you make all of these work with qbittorent? It returns "0 rules were applied' if i just rename .txt to .dat (it only works with .p2p .dat and .p2b)

    Import the unmodified list(s) into https://www.sb-innovation.de/showthread.php?t=33978, export in the format qBittorrent expects.
