    Hi,
    Some P2P rules are available here:
    http://www.looknstop.com/En/rules/rules.htm#BitTorrent

    But the best way is to look at the P2P settings of the programs you are using (and especially the connection/ports settings) and then you add the required rules for these ports (some generic rules to open incoming ports/server mode are available here: http://www.looknstop.com/En/rules/rules.htm#TCPserver )
    No it won't. However probably a discount price will be proposed to existing users.
    Next question will be: what are the plans for a version 3. No idea yet, but for a new release like that, there will be a beta test phase for at least 3-6 months, and there is no such beta currently...

    Regards,

    Frederic

    Hi xXDarkStalkerxX :)

    In order to easily create new rules remember that the outgoing blocked packets are your friends... Check first the UDP packets since the TCPs are managed by the general rule "Authorise Standard Internet Services" in the LnS Enhanced rules set.

    For all P2P applications you need two type of specific rules:

    1- Server rules to allow the network to connect to your shared folder
    in TCP and the rule must be located befor or on the top of the general
    rule "Block Incomming Network Connections".

    2- Client rule(s) to allow your PC to connect to the P2P network and download.

    By "specific" rule I mean a rule trigger by the application and not by all application (like general rules). The application must be added to these specific rules from the rule editing window and the button "applications..."

    Also the port used by the application and the rules must be the sames. In general these ports have to be configured in your P2P application and must be also configured in the specific rules.

    I'll give you here an example for µTorrent and you may use this example to create rules for the other P2P applications you're using.

    First of all some hints about µTorrent rules:

    1- One server specific rule must be created and located before or on the top of the general rule blocking incomming connections [TCP in + flag syn]

    2- One general rule for the Internet application such as the one in the LnS enhanced rules set

    3- One specific rule for µtorrent related to NAT-Port Mapping Protocol in UDP

    4- One specific rule for µtorrent related to BitTorrent InfoHash in UDP

    5- One specific rule for µtorrent related to the DHT in UDP

    Then at the Operating System level the SSDP and UPnP services must be in automatic mode and started (using the 1900 UDP port) IF you are within a Local Area Network or Router (with an IP local address such as 192.168.x.x)

    Finally at the µTorrent options you must check the 2 port mapping options

    In the rules example for µTorrent attached here the port used by the server rule and by the DHT rule is the same and must correspond to the one in the µTorrent options. You may change it to fit to your own selected port...

    Download the file Torrent-English.rie.TXT
    Rename the file by removing the trailing .TXT
    Import in LnS
    Put the rules at their right position in the list
    Change the port in the server and DHT rule if needed
    Save and apply.

    You may reboot (to be sure... ;-) )

    Try µTorrent.

    Suggested program to use with µTorrent and other P2P:
    PeerGuardian2

    Hope this help. Let us know.
    :)

    I added the utorrent rule uploaded my Climenole and everything works perfectly only if i disable the default 'block UPnP port 1900' rule when using the enhanced ruleset. Is it safe for me to leave this rule disabled permanently? Or is it possible to change this rule so that the UPnP protocol is only enabled when utorrent is running?

    Thanks

    Yes, you can create a specific rule to allow UPnP/port 1900, and associate it to your utorrent application, so the port will be open only when this application is connected.
    Of course, don't forget to re-enable the initial rule that was blocking these packets (and the new rule should be placed before that rule).

    even though this confused the crap out of me ( not your fault but my own lol) I did download the file and and adjusted the ports to the port That I usee for Utorrent and now I am totally connected :) that you. this was the only reason why I wasn't using this firewall because I couldn't get utorrent to work properly and thanks to you now I can :)

    Hi Paroxysm :)

    lol And now you can "pump" all the web in your PC with µtorrent: very good!

    In case of problem with LnS there is a simple solution: just ask the question here and you'll have the solution ASAP. After a certain period you'll find LnS very easy (and funny) to use.

    Have a nice day.

    :)
