Re: sandvine workaround

From the link

# Drop incoming packets with RST flag on BitTorrent port
# This is what thwarts Sandvine.
add drop tcp from any to me 6883 tcpflags rst



If legit RST traffic is sent it will also be dropped and you will end up with half open connections which in time will timeout.... so I suppose it's not the end of the world. But there will be better workarounds soon I'm sure.
