An IP Filter will block a list of known bad IP addresses (computers) from connecting to your BitComet. These lists contain many IP addresses used by groups who work for organizations like the RIAA and MPAA. While nothing can be 100% effective, an IP Filter will provide you with at least some degree of protection and help minimize the risk of your privacy being compromised. The following IP Filter is recommended: ShadowCast IP Filter Rev.43 (592KB).
Ability to block IP temporarily or permanently, compatible with eMule ipfilter.dat
Update | 8th November 2005 : Added the latest revision (43) of ShadowCast's IP Filter -Dragosani
To open this file you will need an archive manager capable of decompressing RAR files, such as WinRAR or IZArc.
Once opened, simply drag and drop the new ipfilter.dat to your BitComet\Rules folder or select the ipfilter.dat file then click the Extract To button and browse to your BitComet\Rules folder (usually located in C:\Program Files\BitComet\rules)
If BitComet is running, you should restart it at your earliest convenience so the new IP Filter will be used.
The home of the ShadowCast IP Filter can be found here, but I will update this thread whenever a new version is released so make sure you check back often.
