How to block frostwire? OR limit # of connections?

    Here in iraq, we share roughly 400kbps (depends on peak hours, etc) between 15 people, give or take. Tomato successfully blocks utorrent, but I recently found a user with about 300 connections open. When I inquired about it, he mentioned he was using frostwire.

    Any way to block it completely, or at least limit number of connections?

    Frostwire is based on Limewire which is uses the Gnutella protocol. Just use the L7 filter that says gnutella, and set it to lowest priority or whatever you like :)

    Just downloaded frostwire to test a few ideas - but doesn't seem to install on Windows 7. Anyone got it working?

    I don't have Frostwire, and don't really want to install it to test, but, what if you went to Access Restriction, then on the Blocked Resources, UNCHECK Block All Internet Access, then in the HTTP Request window, just add www.frostwire.com OR just frostwire in the window?

    Might be worth a try.
