Anti Leech is a really great way to protect your files from gay leechers that steal your bandwidth causing your site to load slow. This is the script I use.

- First if u don't have it download the BEST anti leech here then extract to a folder of your choice.
- Second u HAVE to double check an make sure your perl path is right(in all cgi files) its usually"#!/usr/bin/perl",if your not sure ask your host.
- Make these directory's in your ftp account.. Anti an inside Anti make one called data or better something that noone could guess, cause it will have all your REAL other words someone could get all your files so make it data00 or something else.
- Now upload admin.cgi/download.cgi/ to yourAnti directory in ASCII mode! then CHMOD admin.cgi an download.cgi to 755 an to 666.
- Then upload anti_stats.txt/files.txt/leechlog.txt in yourdata directory in ASCII mode! then CHMOD those files to 777.
- Next open leecher.html an edit it in any html editor to what u want it to say then upload it to your Anti directory .don't worry about CHMODed also upload help.jpg in Binary Mode to Anti too.
- Finally call up admin.cgi in your browser (ex. and you should be able to set it up without any probs..if you need any more help post in the forums
