We know enough about it not to disconnect them for bandwidth abuse.  We
don't rate limit it as it's mainly going over our I2 links.  Stepping
back from being bandwidth police, it's an awesome P2P use as long as you
have bandwidth to support it.  We made sure our other P2P efforts don't
interfere.

Are there institutions using Dragonfly from http://www.dragonfly.com ?
If so, I would be interested in hearing if you are shaping this
application's bandwidth or have taken any other measures to throttle
it
down
and control the IP addresses it talks to.

One of our department has purchased the software and it seems to be
very
bandwidth thirsty.  In addition the P2P model they are using seems not
to
handle RFC1918 IP addresses so our internal sensors are triggering
when
Dragonfly tries to connect to a peer over a private IP.
