P2P blocking

From SME Server
Revision as of 21:50, 15 June 2010 by Timn (talk | contribs) (Corrected bugzilla double bracket fudge in note box - prefix note message with msg=))


The goal of the IPP2P project is to identify peer-to-peer (P2P) data in IP traffic.

Refer http://ipp2p.org/ which then refers to http://opendpi.org/

It appears the ipp2p project may now be defunct (at February 2010).

Important.png Note:
These instructions refer to smeserver-ipp2p.

The package must be recompiled for each released version of SME server and the corresponding kernel (and kernel mod) version.

The last smeserver-ipp2p package was released on 3 March 2009.

See Bugzilla:38 for information regarding the current status of development & maintenance.
