    Hello everyone! I am trying to block anyone from download .torrent files through my router but I can't seem to get it to work. I have done it through Linksys firmware and dd-wrt just by blocking the keyword torrent and .torrent but with tomato I can't get it to work. I have also tryed .torrent$ and still doesn't work!

    Anyone have any suggestions....?

    Under Access Restrictions, then HTTP Request I entered.....

    .torrent
    torrent
    .torrent$
    torrent$

    This way whenever someone is using my internet through my router the cannot download torrent files. It will let them download it but the file will be currupt and won't open.

    Add also:

    tracker
    announce

    But basically, it's a waste of time. The best way is to use the QOS default class to catch any traffic not specifically allowed, that will include P2P connections.

    Is it works if user using hidemyass.com?

    Adding tracker and anounce will simply catch legitimate traffic and cause issues (if only in a small way).

    Anyway, magnet links.

    Any chance someone could specify precisely how this is done, as every time I try to do it, it either doesn't work
    at all, or all Web access is completely cut off to the user in question.
