    Using Bandwith And Software

    Ok,
    We are in the south-west of the country and are behind south-west grid for learning and use them for internet access, using a proxy. the problem we have is we would like to get working, by getting around their firewall or whatever they have in place stopping it, bit torrent and p2p eg limewire. this is purely for educational purposes and nothing else. i have heard of http tunnels would this work or have you any better ideas.

    cheers for any help in advance.

    Nuttygeek.

    hmmmm, "purely for educational reasons."

    'Course it is

    Can you not use port 80 to trick firewalls with some of these apps? Any decent firewall admin will have this covered though.

    Bit expensive just for p2p don't you think? And most decent security-minded admins would indeed block these protocols. Of course you could- "for educational purposes only"- use these apps at home for whatevfer reason you are doing so and bring the results into work....

    I use bittorrent to grab Linux ISOs (just to back up the existance of 'educational use').

    I use software that relies on bitTorrent to download updates ...

    Software for testing the graphical capabilities of workstations ...

    No ... they are not games ... they are for testing graphical capabilities of workstations.
