If you are interested in stopping P2P a good application to look at is
www.akonix.com. It does not require a client install like some of the other
similar applications and it also allows virus scanning and IM management.

Subject: [unisog] Restricting software at colleges and universities

Is it possible to restrict/prohibit software in higher ed. institution? We
are a two year community college with no residence halls (luckily) and we
are currently in the process of writing up a guideline/practice against
installing and using certain software programs such as peer-to-peer file
sharing.  We have an AUP, but are looking to write up something more focused
on P2P software.  I am interested in hearing how other higher ed
institutions are handling the problems with P2P file sharing.  Thanks,
