    You realize that halting traffic on ports 1000-65534 will break just about everything too right?

    I agree, the best way to block torrents is to restrict the installation of software on the computers in first place.

    Some software dont require installation, the exe´s and dll´s are placed in any folder with user rights and run fine.
    And some app use the ports 1000 to up, i remeber now irc protocol 6667, but there are some others sure.
    I believe that the best solution pass for the signatures of the packet header at layer 7, but is not easy.

    I suppose I don't get it. Why not just block .torrent in mime type of webfilter?
    Seems to work for me...

    brent just blocking .torrent doesn't work you have to block the websites that host the torrents because otherwise when you enable protocol encryption it just brakes thought. I tested it
