Hi I was just wondering if the P2P surf option is activated are all other activities like online gaming and normal downloads completely unaffected i.e. I won't see an increase in my pings as a result or lower download speeds. Thanks.
As far as I know, it only has effect upon known P2P protocols. So normal file downloading over say FTP and gaming shouldnt be affected.
Don't forget that after enabling/disabling it in the control panel, you have to disconnect/reconnect for it to work.
ISTR that this option was brought in when Ellacoya's and traffic shaping was but a twinkle in PlusNet's eyes. I wonder what system deals with the operation of this function? Or if it has just been handed over to Ellacoya?
