Peerguardian 2 not updating
Back on the main PG2 screen is a settings tab, so lets take a look at it.
It blocks connections to and from hosts specified in huge blocklists (thousands or millions of IP ranges). It's highly recommended to use Peer Block instead, which is a continuation of Peer Guardian's development in Windows, with bug fixes and support for Windows Vista and Windows 7. Not only is its source code open for you to read, use, and modify - but the project is open for you to join and contribute in any form (code, documentation, bug reports, web and support).Peer Block maintains the functionality of the original Peer Guardian 2 program, but includes fixes for various issues that remain unaddressed in the latest (~3 year old) version of PG2. Make sure to read the "Known Issues" sticky to see if your problem's already known (and maybe resolved), and also for what we need from you if we're going to be able to help! You can also post and report any problems you're having with the forum software itself or if you have any ideas on how to improve it, or just generally post any discussions you have not specifically related to Peer Block Support.Please note this does not mean you are allowed to spam the forums.Its origin seeds in targeting aggressive IPs while you use P2P.
Peer Guardian Linux: Not developed actively anymore.
Fu Ri Ou S1 on the Methlabs IRC channel was kind enough to give me a copy of the latest beta, so here's what the PG2 project looks like so far.
I am testing PG2 on my machine here, which is running with 2.6Ghz, 1GB RAM and Win XP SP1. I am currently using the e Donkey2000 network with my e Mule client with about 40 files currently downloading and a few hundred shared. A nice setup wizard is the first thing I saw after extracting all files into a PG2 folder on my HDD.
It is very easy to manually update PG2 but the option for Automatic Updates is available.
This would be a handy option for me as I often leave my computer switched on but idle for days unend.
The Open List option shows you the blocked ranges of IP's in a List Editor, but that's all, it doesn't allow modification of the list.
