I know all eyes are upon us right now, just wanted to share my setup with everyone, and make sure im not missing anything here. Secondary connection w/...

Peer Gaurdian 2 with 3 differnt blocklist.
Level 1 Blocklist
RIAA File Flooding
Winmx World

Havent had too many hits in PG at all, so I assume all is working good.

I also use TCPView, and only allow my secondary too connect with a primary from another country, such as Japan, UK, Italy. Is this safer? than say connecting to someone with a RR or comcast connection in the US.

Anyone else use tcpview that can give me some insight on this?

Apologies So_

Yes I have used TCP View on occasion just not for  the purposes you mentioned above.  I dont think that allowing connections from only certain regions or ISPs well help your safety exactly.  

I realize the reputations of some american ISPs however that is usually related to selling out their own customers. ... :P

using the block lists in your peer guardian provided by us should be plenty for now to keep you fairly safe.   Keep in mind that the RIAA still has the problem they had prior to the new caches.. its a huge undertaking and total money loosing deal to attempt to sue users of a decentralized network like WPN, not to mention the near impossablity of the burden of proof of your on network activity.  This is the main reason for the flooding and other things they do to try to drive users away and destablize the Network in  general.

WinMX is one, if not the best at providing on network privacy.
