PAN doesn't see files in bittorrent ?

Hi,

I see alot of b/w usage in bittorrent application but I didn't see any files in there.

ps. I already apply file blocking profile with alert action.

bittorent clients send chunks of file not the complete one so is pretty normal not to see the file mime type in bittorent flow. Once received all chunks the file is recustructed on client side.

Block bittorent application or limit it on Qos side.

Also you can block torrent files (the start point that the torrent program uses generating threads to pull down the file pieces).
