With Rogers, your host name is based on your firewall & modem MAC addresses, so all it takes is a host look up of the IP address to find the host name & MAC addresses. They also use DHCP, but the IP address changes so seldom that it's virtually static.And I suspect that most ISP's don't show the MAC address to the outside... But I'm not sure...
From the comments on the site:For those with a static IP, this works.
But most use an internet service that dynamically allocates IP addresses which change from time to time.
we don't bother ourselves to separate dynamic IPs. The site is just for show. However we have time-stamps. 126.96.36.199 might be a dynamic IP - however it belonged to a certain person at 12:12am 12/12/2011. Besides DHT allows us to get a user's machine fingerprint. So even if it's a dormitory...
I just wonder if they are limited to 80 kbps upload.Well looks like someone at rogers is out of a job at christmas time.
FWIW, what I can't understand is how Rogers, the company which throttles P2P applications and using Deep Packet Inspection for years, allows torrenting at its own Head offices?††† Rogers Hi Speed Internet (delivered over cable) and Portable Internet from Rogers currently manages upstream peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing applications speed to a maximum of 80 kbps per customer. This policy is maintained at all times. For information on Rogers Internet traffic management practices and Legal Disclosure click here.
If you look at what they downloaded, maybe that's where they get the shows that they end up playing on their cable systems!I just wonder if they are limited to 80 kbps upload.
