I don't know of an easy way to implement a download quota manager... I bet there is something on the net you can install on all the PC's to do this but I'll have to dig around a bit to find something.

 

If these are windows boxes and you have Active Directory installed you should be able to create a group policy to block everything but Port 80 or http or block the BitTorrent on the Windows Firewall.

 

If you don't have Active Directory, you can still block the BitTorrent traffic by restricting it on your main router or firewall to the internet.

 

Here's the ports BitTorrent users.

 

TCP 6881-6999.

 

Hope that helps!

Hi iignis! Welcome to the site!

 

Another option if your systems are running Windows is to configure a Software Restriction Policy using either Group Policy (AD Based) or Local Policy to restrict the Applications from running on your desktops.

 

Just another option.
