    I have come across an application called E-donkey which is a Peer to peer
    file sharing tool

    In the past I have blocked similar tools by blocking access to the directory
    servers that the software uses however this tool appear to replicate the
    server lists to create a web affect.

    Whilst at present looking at the server list hosted on the site there are a
    list of IP Address' that I can block access to I am looking for a more
    permanent solution that I could hopefully block at my web cache.

    Anybody any experience / suggestions as to how to approach this and also
    what other peer to peer tools do people block and how

    Thanks Tim
