Calling any 133t H4xx0rs...or anyone else who knows about setting up proxies

Well, after our campus got several threatening letters from the RIAA about "rampant music piracy" (our rival school, just down the road, RPI was in the news a few weeks ago with those students being sued for 150,000 a song) they have decided to block all of the ports used by file sharing apps...although some of my friends with PCs say kazaa works but rarely and very slowly when it does. Who out there knows of any os X tricks or apps that you can use to set up some kind of proxy server (SOCKS 4 i would imagine?) to allow me to work around this....or am i juts S.O.L.?

of course, i would be using these sharing services for non copyrighted songs

but seriously, they have blocked so many ports that other totally legitimate programs such as multiplayer games don't even work...its really starting to get annoying

EDIT: Spelling cause im going blind studying for finals

just tell acquisition to listen on port 21. if that doesnt work try port 80. you should be able to get it to work on a common port like those.

what is the task anyway?

I'm not getting it. Do you want to set up a Proxy, firewall etc. to be protected from the Riaa, or want to get around one?

If you want to get around, what kind of firewall are you using?
Simple masquerading routers can mostly be worked around by the programmes themselfes, if you surf a real proxy, you can mostly forget about going around it. Socks is also a pretty safe way to keep you fron doing anything interesting in the net...

Anyway, the most promising approach is to try to use http as protocol as this is always allowed to go trough a normal firewall, even via proxy.

Oh right. So gnutella is suddenly not a port for illegal activity then? Or have I got the wrong end of the stick?
