How to know if traffic is free P2P or Peering Points traffic?
You must be on an ADSL plan that is eligible for free P2P & Peering Point traffic. The traffic must be coming directly from another Netspace ADSL1 customer or Peering Point in your state. If unsure you can perform a traceroute to see the path the traffic takes. If you are unsure how to interpret the results of the traceroute or have any questions please refer to our support site.
A word of warning — just because a traceroute shows that traffic sent from a customer goes through a peering point, it does not mean that traffic will come back the same way! If it does not come back via the peering point then the traffic counts as part of your download allowance.
Proxied traffic will also be counted as billable data. You should be using a direct connection to the peering point to download, rather than via any proxy settings in your software.
