    I'm on a very small college campus where they graciously block every port except for web and a few other app ports (iChat video doesn't work, SMTP ports are blocked, and of course bit torrent doesn't work). I can usually get connected to the tracker, but no peers ever connect. Now for those who may chastise me for using bit torrent, I'm downloading a video my friend made in the US, so there is no legal aspect to this.

    Any idea around this scourge of port blocking!?

    If no inbound ports are forwarded to your machine, I think you're out of luck.

    Make bittorrent use port 80 (the standard web port)?
