Is this ADSL modem use to share internet connection? If so it might have some feature to block the ports 6881-7999 TCP. But BitComet usually searches for other open ports like AIM using other ports like 80 that beside it's default which would pretty much bypass the filter since you need to allow port 80 for web surfing.

There's another solution like installing a firewall on the user computer, making sure they run on limited account so they can't modify the firewall and just block the bitcomet program. Zone Alarm is free check it out at http://www.zonelabs.com/store/conte...st_za.jsp?dc=12bms&ctry=US&lang=en&lid=nav_za

Beside hitting him over the head with it..I don't know for sure. Try getting into it's web configuration to see if it has any port filtering feature. I really don't know unless you can specify the exact model # and maybe I'll google it up.

You could be mean and set the router to block his MAC address from having any internet access... that would stop the problem, for a little bit at least.

Im not sure about your router, but many newer routers have a QoS feature, that will limit the amount of bandwidth each computer gets based on MAC address. this way he can still use bit commet and the sort, and everyone else will still get a fair share of the bandwidth.

Lol that was hillarious




Is this guy saying the bit comet is slowing down the whole network or just on one computer. If its just on one computer ... click exit lol.

The best way to go is install a firewall on his computer and put a password on it :]
