Add Firewall Rule to Block specific Clients/Agents (like Xunlei)

There are some torrent clients/agents that download sequentially and don't seem to upload at all. The last one I can remember is Xunlei (

Could you developers please add another option for the firewall, allowing for blocking clients/agents that match specific string, string pattern (xun*), and regex?

Currently the firewall only works with ip list or country codes. Since the client/agent information is already available (after all Tixati shows this information for all peers connected to us), and the firewall feature already exists, I presume this is reasonably feasible.

This is already possible. Go to: Settings > Transfers > Peers > Client Filter (Configure).
Paste this at the Client ID > Never Allow:
