    I am curious on what is the compatibility of Thibor 15c QoS with Protocol Encryted torrent traffic? Is LAyer7 able to detect this kind of Traffic?

    Thx

    It works frine for me in Thibor 14. I can't imagine 15c being any different. the traffic may be encrypted to mask the headers, but as long as your router is set to QoS traffic on the port your torrent client is set to use, then it should work just fine.

    layer7 cannot detect encrypted bittorrent traffic, that's kinda the point of encrypting it; to defeat traffic shaping countermeasures. would still work on the port number though

    Bittorrent, QOS, and PE

    I agree, the point of encription is mask the activity. If Thibor can detect pe bittorrent then so can your ISP. An alternative as suggested would be to set a QOS on the actual port (it would have to be a static port)
