Quote
Dear Customer,

We are writing on behalf of Cox Communications to advise you that we have received a notification that you are using your Cox High Speed Internet service to post or transmit material that infringes the copyrights of a complainant's members.  We have included a copy of the complaint letter.  Pursuant to the provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"), which is codified at 17 U.S.C. § 512, upon receiving such notification, Cox is required to "act expeditiously to remove, or disable access to" the infringing material in order to avoid liability for any alleged copyright infringement.  Accordingly, Cox will suspend your account and disable your connection to the Internet within 24 hours of your receipt of this email if the offending material is not removed.

He wants to know is there anything he go do so they don't find out he's using torrents

that wont make a difference.

just encrypt your bit torrent traffic, or use a VPN to secure all your traffic.

Ok my friend has this ISP and he got an email saying
He wants to know is there anything he go do so they don't find out he's using torrents
My father got a letter from them LONG ago that even knew the name of the movies he was Downloading... I told everyone here but few believed me, I don't know why, I guess I am not trustworthy. Anyway yea there are two things he can do. Number one, use JAP.
http://anon.inf.tu-dresden.de/index_en.html

Then use either Azures or BitComet. Turn on file encryption, it will encrypt the file before you send it or receive it if you do it right.

Azures.
1. Go to: Tools > Options > Connection > Transport Encryption

2. Check the require encrypted transport’ box.

3. Choose RC4 in the ‘minimum encryption’ dropdown box

note that RC4 uses more CPU time than the plain encryption or no encryption. It is however harder to identify for traffic shaping devices
4. You can choose to tick the ‘Allow non-encrypted outgoing connections if encrypted connection attempt fails’ box. This will ensure compatibility with clients that are not using encryption. However, it makes it easier for your ISP to detect BitTorrent traffic. I recommend that you try to tick this box first. If you are still not getting proper speeds untick it

5. Tick the ‘Allow non-encrypted incoming connections’ box

azureus bit torrent

That’s it, your Bittorrent traffic is encrypted now.

Bitcomet
1. Go to: Options > Preferences > Advanced > Connection

2. Go to: ‘Protocol encryption’ You can choose between ‘auto detect’ and ‘always’. Auto detect will give you more connections but offers less protection against traffic shapers.

I would recommend to try auto detect first, if that doesn’t increase your speeds you need to switch to always

bitcomet bit torrent

That’s it, your Bittorrent traffic is encrypted now.

µTorrent

utorrent bit torrent

1. Go to: Options > Preferences > Bittorrent

2. Go to ‘Protocol encryption’, you can choose between ‘enabled’ and ‘forced’. ‘Enabled’ will give you more connections but offers less protection against traffic shapers.

I would recommend to try ‘enabled’ first, if that doesn’t increase your speeds you need to swich to ‘forced’.

3. Ticking ‘Allow legacy incoming connections’ allows non ecrypted clients to connect to you. This improves compatibility between clients but makes you more vulnerable to traffic shapers.

I would recommend to tick this box, but if that doesn’t increase your speeds, untick it!

That’s it, your Bittorrent traffic is encrypted now.

they see that they are distributing or downloading copyrighted software or movies and that is illegal and Dlewis is right about the encryption part so try it.

Do you guys think it would be a lot harder for an ISP to find out your downloading illegal content if all the content is contained in many different archives that you have to unpack into the larger file? My friend downloaded a lot of movies over the summer and uploaded just as much and his ISP either didn't notice or they didn't care.

That's probablly why. Most sites use www.rapidshare.com or www.rapidshare.de to share cracked files. Those sites have a 100mb file limit, so they archive them with WinRAR.  Smile

Just a FYI...your ISP (Cox) does not detect you are uploading or downloading copyrighted content. They are merely following up on a complaint filed by the copywrite owner of the material or a legal rep of the copywrite owner. It doesn't matter what the incoming or outgoing port is and Cox is not interested in monitoring that traffic. If the owner of the material complains your ISP is obligated by law to take steps per Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

Cox spies on its customers, it is the only ISP in the US to do that.  They have caught me twice, 3rd time they deny me service.
