Hi, I am looking a solution to block all P2P and bittorrent traffic by ASA FW (8.03 ver) and allow only a single machine in the network which is not to be blocked by ASA. Please suggest...

Hi, the example is for P2P and IM Traffic Configuration and i wana block only P2P traffic. Question:- Does Bittorrent use P2P protocol?? Is there any free proxy server would you recommand through which I cud filter the same traffic instead of doing configuration on ASA. Thanks!!!

If you go thorugh the config statements in th example, you will see different sections for IM and P2P.

Just ignore the statements for IM and use the rest for P2P.

Regarding your query for Proxy Server to block P2P, there are may products which claim that but I don't know how efective they are. Some are listed here.
