Detected AP2P on....?
December 08, 2010 05:38AM

I've used PeerBlock for a while now and all I've ever seen are different companies and universities.
Recently, every single time I start uTorrent it comes up with "Detected AP2P on Amazon EC2 cloud" once.

Then if I leave uTorrent on (no downloads) every so often it'll come up with different variations and sometimes even when uTorrent is off:
- Detected AP2P on Amazon EC2 cloud
- Detected AP2P on Smart Broadband
- Detected AP2P in Globe Telecom
- Detected AP2P on SingNet
- Detected AP2P on Net2EZ
Edit: It keeps adding new ones! It just added "Detected AP2P on Tru Internet Co".

If I actually start downloading anything on uTorrent (including legal stuff) PeerBlock shows a bombardment of the above.

Why haven't I seen these before and is anyone else getting them? :\
Should I be worried?

Basically it means one of the amazon servers is tracking you and peerblock is blocking corprate protocal connections.
Meaning PeerBlock is doing its job.

Too bad hundreds of legitimate sites are blocked because of this mess!

Amazon and limelight show up the most in my blocked log.

200+ IP Addresses I have had to manually allow in my allow list so legitimate sites are not blocked.

Thankfully now after 200+ it's rare now when a site gets blocked. Rare being a few times a week instead of a 20+ a day.

I find myself using the allow http for 15 minute option a lot more these days.

I believe the maintainers of the default lists are 100% paranoid and are screwing them up badly.

Happy Holidays,

I agree.

However, even a paranoiac can sometimes be right.
The problem for PB users is trying to figure out when they're wrong.
We recently had a seemingly endless discussion that was triggered when a block of IP addresses previously belonging to ValueClick was re-assigned to Google.

Just to add something to this, old I know, post.

If you are going to use p2p networks to download movies or any data (im not promoting this) but dont download things which have just been released, I know this due to the camrip this person downloaded to get them caught... give it at least a month after the release before you do so. A few pence here.

Peerblock for the win
