    Rapidshare Downloads are At It

    Over the last few days, I've had people go to my proxies and download 20MB+ of stuff from RapidShare. In the last two days I've had over 50MB of files downloaded in just the last 48 hours.

    I shrugged it off because it didn't affect me, but the last 24 hours my server crashed twice and it's been going slow and timing out the entire day.

    I have banned Rapidshare (using a PHP redirect instead of the Glype Blacklist, I can't get the blacklist to work ).

    Just a warning, I recommend you ban Rapidshare as well!

    Go to /etc/hosts on your server and add.

    Code:
    0.0.0.0 www.rapidshare.com rapidshare.com
    It will override the DNS of the site so it will load the cpanel welcome page. (or whatever resolves to localhost on your machine )

    Thanks, but I prefer to just leave it as a simple PHP edit.

    Final results for the last 24 hours (before the ban) on GuardTunnel.com (Unblockbyproxy.com also had a lot of hits, but not as much):

    RapidShare Hits - 217984
    CPU - 25.86%
    Memory: 101.89%
    Total File Downloads: 65MB
    Bandwidth Usage: 150GB

    Luckily my server has been running pretty fast since the first post this morning, so I'm all set. Almost got in trouble with ServInt because I had to convince them to let me run proxies in the first place

    The host file would be more efficient.

    aha !! This is not the right solution :P

    Just Go for Download Limit , Keep it 2 - 5 MB .If the browse limit is more it will return a error.This way user cant download such big files from any website.Today you banned rapidshare , but tomorrow they will download from megaupload.com ...

    It's not that they were downloading big files, because they weren't really. And it wasn't just one person. It was a bunch of people downloading A LOT of files from RapidShare.

    I am keeping it banned for now, my proxy is for web surfing, not downloading.

    I know that , thats why keep a browse limit , so no one can download any stuff from any website , But can browse website easily

    This worked a lot for me , i got a huge traffic but i handled it very well by setting some variables , so server load and bandwidth was in control.

    I mean this one on includes/setting.php

    Code:
    /*****************************************************************
    * Transfer options
    ******************************************************************/
    
    // Time to wait for the connection (seconds) [0 for no limit]
    $CONFIG['connection_timeout'] = 4;
    
    // Time to allow for the entire transfer (seconds) [0 for no limit]
    $CONFIG['transfer_timeout'] = 50;
    
    // Allow resuming of transfers
    $CONFIG['resume_transfers'] = false; //Take this as false 
    
    // Maximum filesize permitted for downloads through the proxy (bytes) [0 for no limit]
    $CONFIG['max_filesize'] = 1024 * 1024 * 5 ; //This Means 5 mb
    
    // Speed limit for target to proxy downloads (bytes/second) [0 for no limit]
    $CONFIG['download_speed_limit'] = 10240 * 100;
    
    // Queue transfers up so we only have one transfer running at a time per user
    $CONFIG['queue_transfers'] = true;

    What was the code you used and where did you put it?
