Transmission Blocklist

The Transmission torrent client has an option to set a Blocklist, which helps protect you from getting caught and having the DMCA send a letter/email.

It's as simple as downloading and installing the latest client:

After installing, navigate through the menu: Edit > Preferences > Privacy:

Transmission

  1. Check enable blocklist
  2. Paste in: http://john.bitsurge.net/public/biglist.p2p.gz
  3. Check Enable automatic updates
  4. Click Update
  5. Close

The list I recommend is built by a nice guy who runs this daily:

curl -s https://www.iblocklist.com/lists.php \
  | sed -n "s/.*value='\(http:.*=bt_.*\)'.*/\1/p" \
  | xargs wget -O - \
  | gunzip \
  | egrep -v '^#'

It's really just collecting every list on https://www.iblocklist.com/lists.php for your convenience.

All links should show results for The Adventures of Baron Munchausen because it's older, great, and the tracker had better have it.

With any of these trackers and searching, it's nice to not have your browser be so accepting of garbage. I recommend uBlock for whichever browser you prefer.

Both http://john.bitsurge.net/public/biglist.p2p.gz and https://github.com/sahsu/transmission-blocklist/releases/download/1.0.0/blocklist.gz are currently 0 bytes in size. Did something breakdown on the backend?

EDIT: Nevermind. Saw this issue:

That's also outdated by five months. Do you know how long it takes for a Dynamic IP address to change, at least in Canada?
12 days.
