anyways how do i stop it. how do i know which port is opened for it. which port do i close?
lol what happens to my dads account because of that letter? are we in trouble? im talking to the legal deparment tommorrow, they said i have to, to resolve the issue or our service will be canceled. what do you thinks going to happen?
how do i block access to programs with bit______
lol when i log into the router, i can block ports, but i don't see a way to block programs without knowing the ports to block.
Why are you talking to the legal department tomorrow? Are they forcing you to call them?
Also, like others said, closing ports only slows it down. The speed of the actual torrent doesn't matter for the RIAA/MPAA to log your IP address to complain to your ISP for another letter. Just download [legal] torrents from sites like demonoid or thepiratebay and you'll be safe. If your using a search engine like TorrentSpy or whatever, make sure you know the tracker and not some random server tracking it.
