    Its been discussed before, it is understood the ISP sends a RST message to both ends of the communication to break the traffic (each end thinks the other has closed the link), so something like this may work if both parties have this in their firewall script

    #Replace 6883 with your BT port
    #Comcast BitTorrent seeding block workaround
    iptables -I FORWARD -p tcp --dport $BT_PORT --tcp-flags RST RST -j DROP
    It will of course block genuine RST messages, which means connections will hang around until timing out...

    thanks nobugme, I put in the rules, I'll take a couple days and see if it makes a diff

    If you copied those lines that add to your INPUT chain then it will not make a diff!

    Does anyone have any iptables rules that work? If so, can they post the rules here?
