    Indeed, blocking the control port/ip of a centralized p2p app will kill it. I think spotifies lack of p2p controls (considering some of the uTorrent team worked on it) is to prevent those that cannot configure a p2p client breaking things, like say choking the phone line.

    It is p2p though, so provided your qos is correctly setup it shouldn't effect other traffic (and you've got mac limiting too). By taking up all the bandwidth do you mean uses allowance/cap?
