Universities banning P2P traffic

Univerity of Connecticut is going to ban all peer to peer traffic except of DC++. Beginning in fall 2006 all peer-to-peer programs will be blocked on the network. The current restrictions on these programs allow them to work, but limit their ability to consume network bandwidth and restrict their network speed. According to a campus-wide e-mail from UITS, similar restrictions have been on the network in the past from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., but they now apply to the entire day.

Some popular methods still remains – the restrictions are only in place between the UConn network edge and the Internet. As a result, programs that allow users to share within the UConn network, such as the popular DC++ will be unaffected. DC++ is very popular in local filesharing within the university, so many users will not be affected that much. “It’s not prevention, but a restriction,” said Elaine David, assistant vice-president for Information Services and the director of Information Technology Security, Policy and Quality Assurance. The universities are well known for hosting dumps, sites and overally becoming the source of new warez. The future will show us whether this is only isolated attempt or the trend in university networking…

    My school blocks all p2p except bittorrents, and their filters stop you from downloading any .torrent file. Fortunantly, I can get around the HTML filter with privoxy + tor, then the torrent downloads fine.
