We have it easy in our neck of the woods. Our intrusion prevention system
has signatures for all the p2p protocols, so blocking them is only a check
box away. We also limit the bandwidth of known P2P ports to 1kb. Good luck
downloading a movie with that kind of bandwidth. We recently ran into an
issue with the i2Hub P2P software, but since it was based on DC++ protocol
our IPS was able to block it. We also use our IPS to block all IRC traffic
which has been a godsend.
