How can I distinguish the "junk lookups", as the user known as "maintenance" called them in another post, from real requests from real people on our home network? There were over 12,000 requests made to bittorrent.com from our network in the past week. This is no doubt as a result of past activity from my teenage son. There are also all sorts of requests in the hundreds each with the name "Skype" in them, with the reason for blocking listed as "Chat". I don't think my son has any problem having Skype chats or calls, so what are these listed for? There are a few sites listed as Adware with over a hundred requests each. And so on.
So my main question again is, how do I distinguish the real requests from the automatically generated requests? And how would I get rid of the automatic ones?
Also, I thought he told me a few weeks back that he was going to download a movie from the bittorrent website. I asked him not to do that and we rented it instead. How could he do that if it's already blocked?
