Yes, I belive so. If the traffic is encapsulated, or encrypted, I don't think that it can be identified as p2p.

you have to know what kind of tunnel he/she uses, if pptp then if you drop GRE protocol - tunnel cannot be created, if l2pt than this is other story.

i would suggest you to limit traffic for that customer - and if he/she complaints, that has no speed, than as an answer would be - you have XXXKB/s limit set as you used p2p software - turn it of and everything will work for you. :roll: at least it works for me. as i limit bandwidth for user not for what he/she does. so if he chooses to use all available bandwidth for p2p it is his/hers problem not mine

openvpn is a good way to avoid this. plus it can't be detected as a tunnel
