    Anybody know how to punch a hole in a public university's firewall or what ports to use for BitTorrent? I'm at Illinois State University and I'm getting sick of only downloading at like 5kbps on a connection that can handle 38,000kbps. I do more sharing than downloading, so not being "connectable" is really starting to bother me. I've gotten through an entire year, but I can't go another three without being able to download anything.

    Daniel.

    ... don't live in the dorms. They're probably going to notice if you "punch through" and they'll probably shut down your connection
