|Source Port||The network port used by the observed IP address for torrent activity.|

File Sharing events refer to file sharing activity only over the BitTorrent protocol.
While events from the past year are searchable, only events from the past 60 days will be displayed for your company.
File Sharing events are sorted by torrent category, as detailed in File Sharing Categories. The following advanced filters exist for File Sharing events:
Torrents Marked Safe
Some torrents, such as Linux distributions, are legitimate; other torrents are not. All torrents will display an additional Marked As Safe field within File Sharing finding details; this indicates if the torrent is marked safe or not.
Marking Torrents Safe in User Behavior Forensics
There is a toggle to show or hide torrents marked as safe underneath the Torrent category filter. Marked torrents are shown alongside unmarked torrents by default. Hiding marked torrents removes them from the User Behavior Forensics list and subtracts them from the filter counts for each category until they are re-enabled.
