What PeerBlock Is
PeerBlock is a type of program known as an “IP Blocker”.  IP-addresses are used to identify a computer whenever it connects to the internet.  PeerBlock monitors each connection your computer tries to make with another one – and each connection other computers try to make with you – and then compares the other computer’s IP address against a list of “known bad” IP addresses to see whether it should let this connection go through or not.
