Hiding Torrents the ISP

Discussion in 'Computer Software and Operating Systems' started by JustTheOtherGuy, May 12, 2014.

  1. If I did not seed, deleted trackers, etc. is Comcast still going to contact me or my parents with some sort of cease and desist, since I have gotten a warning once or twice before.

    Deleting trackers doesn't help and not seeding probably doesn't help either (besides, you still upload some while downloading). A VPN should probably work but that takes some effort to set up and a monthly fee.

    Short version is "yes they might well do".

    Your options if you want to use torrents are buy a seedbox or a VPN located somewhere that does not care (possibly easier said than done) and use them properly. Private sites can work but they are not necessarily safe either -- all the methods you use to sneak onto those sites can also be used by those trying to catch you, there is something to be said for not being low hanging fruit but if you are already in possession of a few warnings then yeah.

    We could go long at this point and discuss the protocols, methods of catching you and whatever else but it still boils down to the "your options" line above.

    Oh and peerblock is basically useless so don't bother with it.

    I'll say one thing about Australia's internet. They didn't mind or stop me from pirating 30+GB of movies and TV shows whilst I was on holiday there. From a 3G PAYG SIM.

    Edit (since the context got removed): perhaps if you want to avoid conflict with your ISP, consider looking into mobile broadband deals?
