Title: Torrent Blocking - P2p Clients
Post by: pr3p on November 15, 2016, 01:53:48 am
Hello guys anyone here can post a complete guide how to block p2p on opnsense.


1. I would like to block specific .exe like bittorrent, flashget or emule on the gateway or with a extension .torrent files


Note: i tried to disabled the default rule on LAN and enable only ports that is needed but the my client flashget can still download torrents.

Firewall.

On PFSense can we add Layer7 like this one

Hi pr3p,

I'm afraid Layer7 has been removed from OPNsense, later also from pfSense. It was unmaintained and there is no viable replacement.

This requires a commercial DPI engine used by commercial firewall vendors.


Cheers,
Franco
