Need help setting up comp with security and p2p
    #4699137 - 09/23/05 04:23 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Ok so I have Zone alarm, AVG, and Ad-aware, they were on this comp (my g/f's who got it from her mom who got it from a school or something) when i got it. I'm wondering if free security type software is good enough and i was also wondering what program(s) would be the best for p2p for d/l movies and mp3s.

Also any good links to rom sites would be of great value.

www.bittorrent.com - Great program for downloading movies/music/whatever

http://peerguardian.sourceforge.net/ - Blocks out the bad people trying to get at your movies

zone alarm sucks as do most software firewalls.
you should just get a router.

if you must use a software firewall use sygate!...I think they even offer a free personal version now...

get it, it is much better than crappy ZA....

and if you wanna get a good hardware firewall and your strapped for cash.  Just get an old computer and slap on 'smoothwall'.  Then put as many NIC's in there as possible.... :wink:

O ya peerguardian is a great program....get that also

You have to specify which files you want to d/l during bittorrent.

It's different for each client.
