Re: torrent + school firewall

Depending on how the firewall and your school's permissions are setup, it may or may not be possible to circumvent the firewall. If they place a cap on upstream limit, you're screwed. However, if all the do is block access to normal ports there is a way with some clients to force it to use another. Use port 20 or 21 (usually reserved for FTP) and see if either of those let you become unfirewalled.
