    block downloading

    I am using my PC as a server through which internet is shared to other computers. On all workstations Windows XP Professional Srv Pack 2 is installed. The IP is set to obtain automatically. I want to know is there any way to block other users from downloading (for e.g. by using Limewire, Azureus and other p2p softwares).

    Thanks.

    Saeed.

    You'll need some 3rd party hardware firewall or something that can block all the ports that Limewire etc use.

    a hardware firewall is the best solution. that way the user can't turn it off. i suggest a netgear router if it's a small network and a cisco if it's large
