Block the use of torrents

Is it possible to block the use of torrent clients through the router without blocking other stuff such as CCTV?

Re: Block the use of torrents

you could port forward 6881-6889 (and 6969 for the tracker port). to different port so all the clients would need to match the ports used, since isn't any option that can directly disable torrent access, but I think the port forwarding on the hub3 is still a little messed up so doubt if what I suggested will work.

Re: Block the use of torrents

I know the MAC address and IP of the laptop that uses it, is there a way to block internet access just to that laptop?

Re: Block the use of torrents

well you could change the wireless passphrase/password and that will make all devices lose connectivity until the new passphrase is entered guide -> https://help.virginmedia.com/system/templates/selfservice/vm/help/customer/locale/en-GB/portal/20030...

you could use mac filtering with time limits guide -> http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Switched-On-Families/Set-internet-time-limit-for-child/td-p/3138...

Re: Block the use of torrents
