The "p2pwall" project has developed a GPL add-in for iptables based firewalls that allows blocking of traffic to and from "Fast-Track" software such as "Kazaa", Kazaa-lite, iMesh and grokster. The software is designed for use in "permissive" firewall configurations where home-net hosts are permitted more or less unlimited access to the public internet, but are protected from in-bound connections. Ftwall adds logic to such systems to block all fast-track traffic, thus protecting precious network bandwidth and reducing the risk of legal action resulting from the downloading of copyright material by network users.
