Sure-fire way of totally blocking TVU/Sopcast etc
Posted on 2008-10-30
We have a problem with night shift workers streaming content over TVU, Sopcast etc which results in the bandwidth one of our Internet connections being completely consumed by the peer to peer feature of TVU player and the like. Whilst I have blocked the IPs and websites I have found for TVU and Sopcast et al, they still somehow manage to get through. I suspect this is because being peer to peer, it uses random port numbers and multiple IP addresses.
Does anyone know what main port numbers or IPs I could block - or any other way of preventing TVU and other such streaming?
