There is lots of commentary on this. Best to search the forum and read the results:


No, it should be unbockable. Vaults use random ports and traffic is encrypted in transit.

Bulk scanning open ports to see if vault is listening will be fruitless too, as they only talk to other vaults and clients talking in the right protocol.

They may be able to block the maidsafe bootstrap servers, but clients can connect to other nodes on the network, including those they knew about from previous sessions.

In short, they will be trying to block moving, illusive and numerous targets.
