Until September 2013, I-Blocklist, the supplier of the blocking lists Peer Block uses, supported unlimited free list updating.Since September 2013 updates were limited to once weekly, except to paid subscribers.
In this tutorial I’ll show you how to install the Peer Guardian Linux (pgl) on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy, 13.04 Raring, 12.04 Precise using ppa repository.These lists aren’t just limited to anti-P2P IP addresses.You can also block ad, spyware, government and educational IPs.You can pop up your window and watch in real-time all the IPs getting blocked.There is a hard to describe feeling that comes over you watching IP after IP getting rejected from your computer. Peer Guardian 2 is an effective tool for increasing your privacy while downloading from P2P websites around the Internet.Do you love the fact that some organizations try to track your downloading behavior?Well, I personally like my privacy, and I’m sure that most people around the Internet like their privacy as well.However, don’t think it is the perfect solution, as such a thing does not exist. But the risks of using P2P networks are still there. Peer Guardian 2 is a free and open source program capable of blocking incoming and outgoing connections based on IP blocklists.It adds support for 32- and 64-bit Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.When the Peer Guardian project ended, its developer Phoenix Labs encouraged current Peer Guardian users to migrate to Peer Block.
