  • Letter sent from ISP while using seedbox?

    This is just something I'm curious about.

    Have any of you that use seedboxes ever still received an email or even a letter from your ISP while using a seedbox? If so, did you use public trackers? Did you use SFTP or just normal file transfer? Like I said, I'm just curious on just how secure a seedbox really is.
    The biggest mistakes are the ones you're too scared to make.

    Never received a letter and have had a box for over a year now, i've used dmn a few times and that's pretty public. I always use sftp, even tho cert is expired :P

    before having a box everything was from home and none https, never got a letter. i think a lot of letters are just trolling lawyers trying get lots of small settlements.

      You wouldn't get a letter from your home isp unless your home isp was connected to the torrents swarm that had a "snitching ip" in the swarm of peers. If you connected with both your home isp and your seedbox to that same swarm then obviously it'd be possible to get a letter but that would have nothing to do with the seedbox connecting, only the home computer. If a letter was going to be sent in reguards to a torrent connected to by only the seedbox that letter would have to come from the seedbox's source isp to the seedbox company, not your isp. & reguarding the ftp transfers, as far as I've ever seen the letters never have any tracking information collected from ftp transfer's, only torrent activity, but someone correct me if i'm wrong.

        I think you are entirely correct. Even an ISP like Comcast (that has very intrusive anti-piracy monitoring) shouldn't be able to pick up on your downloading from your seedbox. More or less your seedbox is just cloud storage, and with soooooo many cloud based applications and dropboxes, it would be near impossible for your isp to tell the difference between legitimate use and piracy (you are allowed to upload movies and music to clous storage, so they can't just search for certain file-types).

        Now, your seedbox provider could sell you out if they got in trouble for what you are doing (like say, using your seedbox to download child porn), but it is unlikely that a seedbox based in europe/asia/wherever is going to give two shits about a cease and desist from the mpaa or RIAA
