How to block uploads from LimeWire?
Hey guys I'm a Mac user and I have this Limewire which I use to download
some movies but every time I let it downloading thru the night I wakeup and
all the downloads are done but i notice that the IDSL's modem output leds are
blinking so something is uploading but I don't find wut the fvck is uploading
from my comp, I have set in the preferencesfor uploading to not share and
set all the uploading options so it won't upload but for some reason it does
so does anybody know how to stop this shit? Thanks gents for your time.

Add a rule to your firewall application to block the outbound traffic from that application.

No problem bro... oh and one of the things with DC++ you just search for a hub (which you can find relevant hubs at http://hublist.org/) Most hubs require that you share files as well, the more you have in your shared folder the better hubs you can visit. However, there is a trick to it. Use a bandwidth limiter program that DC++ can't reconize, set your upload limit to something small for the DC++ application like 4kb and only allow two people to download from you. Then most of your bandwidth is still reserved for you
I use NetLimiter for Windows OS, but there is a Mac version that does the same thing called Carrafix that you can checkout at http://www.carrafix.com/. Definatly a must have application when doing any type of file sharing, and comes in handy when you are downloading a huge file but still want to visit other websites (like AnabolicReview.com) without your bandwidth being completely consumed by the large ongoing download.
