PeerBlock is a free open source application which is a fork of PeerGuardian. PeerBlock is capable of blocking incoming and outgoing connections based on IP block lists. Besides subscribing to pre-made blocklists from external sources which may be updated via a list manager, PeerBlock is also capable of blocking custom ranges, depending upon user preferences.
PeerBlock 1.0 is based on the same code as PeerGuardian 2 RC1 Test3 Vista version. It adds support for Windows Vista and Windows 7, including the 64-bit editions.
PeerBlock is under active development by a small team of developers led by Mark Bulas. Hosting, as well as the signed driver, is funded by donations from the public. Future donations are intended to contribute to future signed drivers, hosting and to possibly rent a VPS server on which the team should be able to build a "real" online-update feature for future releases of PeerBlock.
