Hmmm. Searching through the forum threads reveal that the model 30 cannot simply block bittorrent traffic. A response from pep-link support to another inquiry on this topic said:
We can priortise your other critical traffic over BitTorent with Application QoS. Have a look under Network > QoS > Application. It is pretty easy to configure.
Can you elaborate?
I need to figure out the ports used by bittorrent and configure a custom rule. Correct?
Can I specify just the ONE rule, set to low priority? Or do I need to define rules for ALL other types of traffic as well and set them to a higher priority? Another way of asking this question is; what is the default priority? I would assume “normal”.
Is there a better way to do this (sans upgrading)? This is a kludge.
And please forward this comment to management: “I LOVE my pep-link 30 and recommend it to others. It replaced a SYSWAN and we are infinitely happier. However, it is a grave disappointment to find the firewall facility (which I just examined for the first time) so lacking. Blocking a common, bandwidth intensive application such as bittorent should be available across ALL your models. Please correct this flaw at once and then you will be perfect”. ;>
