Support for both Windows Vista and IPv6 were in release candidate phase as of May 2009.
The blacklist is stored in a number of different formats: The binary formats (known as P2B) were created at the release of the first beta version of Peer Guardian 2, in order to create the smallest possible blocklist.
It is capable of blocking incoming and outgoing connections based on IP blacklists.
The aim of its use was to block peers on the same torrent download from any visibility of your own peer connection using IP lists.
The format is as follows: the P2P blocklist used by Peer Guardian has been provided by "Bluetack Internet Security Solutions". S) that would spider whois servers to create a map of the internet and all of its IP Addresses.
("Bluetack" was the name of the member of the original Peer Guardian team who owned its previous domain and created the "Block List Manager" used to maintain the list.) uk developed an application called the Bluetack Internet Management System (B. With this database the admins of the site (Seraphielx, Moore, Firstaid, Tozanno, Death Angel, R00ted) would search for names of Anti-P2P companies and set a status code in the entry to make the blocklists that would be downloaded by the blocklist manager for import into Peer Guardian, Protowall, and other applications that would block Anti-P2P traffic from accessing your download.
Speed and resource inefficiencies were fixed by re-designing and re-coding Version 2.0 in C to consume less processing power and memory.
As with most other desktop firewall software for Windows, Version 2.0 is installed as a kernel-level filter in Windows 2000 and later, giving the application direct access to the Windows networking stack and improving performance.It adds support for 32- and 64-bit Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.When the Peer Guardian project ended, its developer Phoenix Labs encouraged current Peer Guardian users to migrate to Peer Block.Although IP addresses of government and business entities are easily added to a list of IP addresses to be blocked, there is no means for Peer Guardian to block access by a government or business using an undocumented IP address to identify people engaged in copyright infringement or other possibly unlawful activity.Peer Guardian Lite is a derivative of Peer Guardian 2 made to consume as little CPU and RAM as possible.The system is also capable of blocking custom ranges, depending upon user preferences.
