P2P blocking

From SME Server
Jump to navigationJump to search


The goal of the IPP2P project is to identify peer-to-peer (P2P) data in IP traffic.

It appears the ipp2p project may now be defunct (at February 2010), although the maintainer of the smeserver-ipp2p packages is still releasing updates for each SME server kernel upgrade (as at May 2012 for SME 7.6.x).

Important.png Note:
The packages for this contrib must be recompiled for each released version of SME server and the corresponding kernel (and kernel mod) version.

See this Forum thread for information regarding the current release status http://forums.contribs.org/index.php/topic,43669.0.html

Also see Bugzilla:38 for information regarding development & maintenance.
