Default blocking utorrent

guys,

is there any way to be able to block utorrent, my boy uses it - and i t seems to be on all the time, he is taking our bandwidth.
Or, is there any way to remove a machine from the network?
Any help?

The uTorrent application will have bandwidth settings, by far the simplest thing to do will be to make your boy set the upload and download limits to reasonable rates (usually Kbytes/sec). So whatever your broadband rates are divide by roughly 10 to get Bytes/sec and then reduce this (e.g. half) to give the boy a reasonable share of the bandwidth.

stary utorrent, go to options, preferences, bandwidth. have him set the upload as 10 k/s. max connections to 500 (global) and 200 per torrent. maximum download rate to 1/2 your connection speed (can test to find out at http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/).

that should make things allot more usable when he is downloading and it will not restrict him too much.

The problem with outright blocking him is that he will find a way around (and its pretty easy to do so if all you do is some blocking on the router).
