Unhappy Peerblock substitute

Hi,

I've been looking for a PeerBlock substitute for Fedora and there seems to be only two possibilities moblock or IPlist. However all the support on both projects seems to be very old and I can't get any of the two to install (or even go close).

I've got the source for IPList and followed the instructions but I get compiler errors almost immediately.

Am I missing something, why aren't peer blocking software more popular on Linux? Anybody can give me some tips on how to install any of the two?

Thanks.

Re: Peerblock substitute

Most of the peer to peer software have the IP blocking feature (either inbuilt or as a plugin) thus negating the necessity for a separate software like Peerblock.

Thanks for the replies. The one integrated with the utility didn't have the option to automatically update the list. But I created a script to do it so I don't require extra software.

Re: Peerblock substitute

Oh yes, they do! Depending on which software you are talking about, you can input a blocklist URL and set it to update at user specified intervals. I know you can do this in Deluge and Transmission. I prefer Tixati, since it has the ability to input multiple blocklist URL's, all the others manage only one (even if it is a bit heavier on system resources).

Re: Peerblock substitute

I use qbittorrent which doesn't have that feature. I've read about Deluge and Transmission, but I like the integrated search feature of qbittorrent that's why I chose that one. The script simply downloads the latest list from the net and concatenates them into a file that can be read by qbittorrent. Easy enough.

Thanks for your help.
