    Well a month ago I got caught downloading something on the pirate bay :eek: I got warned and got my internet back on real quick. I miss downloading stuff on the pirate bay I miss the tv shows and such. I was using the built in encryption thing but that didn't help. Any ideas on keeping me under the radar? How far can just basic proxies get me? Spill your guts out im ready to listen.

    You could always get some seedbox, you can have one for 10-20$ month , then DL files there and use FTP to get them to your computer, that would be 1 solution i guess

    Wel change ISP.. And the seedbox idea is a good idea but connect via SFTP and not normal FTP. I think they detected you connecting to pirate bay and the traffic but is against the law for them to see wats in the traffic.

    Get Peer Guardian and block all those nasty RIAA ip's and other copyright agencies.

    Consider TOR.

    ... There is also Torrent Flux which is a server based torrent program.

    If you get a server I suggest you use Torrentflux-b4rt, it has the same features as torrentflux but is way lighter on CPU usage

    get a transloader (aka, 'beamer') and you can move the file from one server to another server, instead of downloading and then uploading...

    You got warned?
    I didn't think ISP's cared any longer. Are they checking Rapidshare and other file downloading services as well? I'm downloading pretty much 24/7, probably more than 1 TB per month, and I never received a single complaint.
