Layer 7 Shaping on pfSense 2.0 Beta 4

I'm trying to set up a rule to block or sever P2P traffic. I've read a lot of stuff online and in the forums, but I just can't seem to understand how everything needs to be set up. Can someone give me a simple play-by-play on what settings need to be set in order for this to happen.
I'm trying to set it up on a single-LAN, single-WAN setup. Nothing fancy here, just want to be able to control P2P, and everything I've tried so far isn't working.

I'm interested in doing the same for a client… I'm still trying to navigate all the various settings, though. If I come across anything I'll post it here.

I have tried to set this up as well. So far no luck. Here is what I've done:
1. Created a Layer 7 container using built in protocol patterns that contains 1 rule for SSH and another rule for rdp. Both rules set to block.
2. Setup a floating rule that has advanced rules referencing the layer7 container.
I've tested and it appears to just let things go.
Not sure what i'm missing.

its an old known issue that havent been fixed yet, no idea why, maybe its impossible to implement on pfsense

if you are trying to block and not to limit the bandwidth of those p2p apps why not just create a firewall rule to allow only specific ports. :)
