"Ipfilter in P2P - File Sharing

Recently many filesharing programs got in their features one dedicated to filter ips range or single ip which are unwanted and undesired . There are programs working exclusively on banning ips range from the internet connection of users , acting like a firewall , it's the case of Peerguardian and Protowall . Unconvenient with this last choice is that users won't be able to see everything that's hosted or is running over the ips range banned, just like sites or other services ."


This seems out of place. There is a differance between Ipfilter the program and the technique of ip filtering. This does not belong in this article.

License[edit]

At first glance, the license looks a lot like BSD Licenses, ut does not allow redistribution of modified versions.

This is not true... the license allows distribution of both modified and unmodified versions (according to the linked license text at the references section). It only says it must be distributed under the same conditions. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.0.198.173 (talk) 22:05, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

  • If I remember, a former stricter license not allowing modified distribution was previously used, but the author relaxed the license over time. 66.11.179.30 (talk) 01:18, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
