Transmission Blocklist Doesn't Work Properly, Solution

Filed under IT

It seems like a new, untested feature. I was testing on 2.82 + 14203 (the nightly build) The feature is called "Blocklist" and it's found in the Preferences -> Peers menu. I looked into this because I kept having progress go from 98.51% ... 98.72% ... ... 99.99% ... back to 98.51%.

I kept seeing the same IP involved in sending me garbage.

Indeed, the setting didn't work, even when I added http://list.iblocklist.com/?list=bt_level1&fileformat=p2p&archiveformat=gz as recommended by various forums.

The IP involved was listed as part of the Class C range labeled as fake, but it was still allowed to send me garbage. So I ungzipped the file and saved it as level1.txt in the same place level1.bin is stored. That worked.
