p.s. If it still doesn't seem to work after this update, try "Quit Helpers", "Quit" and then relaunch. The kernel extension version should be 1.1.13:

$ kextstat | grep xxx
233 0 0xffffff7f8292d000 0x5000 0x5000 xxx.qnation.PeerGuardian (1.1.13)

Uninstall/reinstall fails.
Anyone have it working after 10.8.3 upgrade?

Nope! PeerGuardian_170b2 - Worked great up until I installed OS Update 10.8.3 this AM and on the reboot PG failed and anything I tried to do through the app's menus failed with various error messages. (new MB Pro, 2.6 GHz, 8 Mb)

Too bad it didn't even get out of beta before it was toast! It was a great app; hope the developer can find an easy fix and get an update out.

Extremely useful piece of software that works on Mountain Lion. I wish there were more of this type of app to choose from, but at least, we have this one. And yes, it works as advertised, if you try and figure out how it works. Don't install, sit back and expect it to do the rest.

Since today Peer Guardian is blocking all connections and all programs. I just thought there is some trouble with my internet connection, but it works fine disabling all filters...
What went wrong there?

Good program,
but the Peer Guardian Launch agent/daemon prevents Apple Mail and Notices from connecting to the iCloud servers.

That is, the PeerGuardian helper applications prevent Apple Mail from connecting to the iCloud IMAP and SMTP servers.
Definitely a bug.
How can I solve this?

go into list manager, make a new list, name it whatever you want, set the checkboxes to active and allow all ranges and use this url :
http://list.iblocklist.com/?list=aphcqvpxuqgrkgufjruj&fileformat=p2p&archiveformat=gz
that will unblock all apple ip ranges.

Does what it says.
Always worked fine for me.
Version 1.7.0 doesn't have an icon in the menu bar any more, should be fixed.

Ive been using this for a while with no problems, but suddenly today it stops working. Nothing pops up on the list and an error message pops up telling me that "this version file is corrupt"

I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it. Restarting my computer but nothing.

I cant use any higher version because Im working on OSX 10.5.8 (not even snow leopard)

I dont have the money to update my whole operating system right now.

Any help? Or an alternative?

Piece of garbage. Started randomly blocking all google servers without warning: impossible to connect to any google server via Mail.app or any browser, across user accounts, and took nearly an hour for me to figure out what it was.

Yeah, I don't think it's been updated for a few years. I have peerblock and utorrent running in unity on vmware. It sucks, but I guess it's better than nothing.

Doesn't work at all. The log shows 0 activity, there isn't an icon in the top bar. I would consider peer guardian for the Mac a bust.

I could not get v1.5.1 to work on 10.6, but 1.6b2 from Jackweb's link is working for me on 10.6.6

If you install this software it will disable your .me account, under mail. Do not use if you have a .me account.
