    I was wondering if anybody could help me on trying to find a way around my school's firewall so I could use a P2P network. I appreciate any help. Thanks

    hehe yeah i've been trying to figure it out. You should try and find out what ports are open on your campus' firewall. The problem is that if you run a port scan you may get in trouble with an IT person who sees you doing that. (i did it before i found out that it was bad and nothing happened but my IT guy is a real piece of work). If you ask around you might be able to figure it out.

    Here's a tip

    Instead of using a P2P, take off your headphones and listen to your teacher, punk!

    No seriously, port scan is probably the eaiest way, but most IT admins are going to be hip to that too...As far as I know they're not going to be much hope without administrator access on your machine.

    You could always talk directly to the members here who have been caught and punished by their schools.
