Re: torrent + school firewall

It also may not be an issue of a firewall. I know that here at Notre Dame I cannot upload or download using BitTorrent above about 1kbps. I can get much greaters speeds though with HTTP and FTP downloads. I think that this is because our OIT uses something called Packeteer, which slows traffic with specific metadata (i.e. filesharing programs like BT). This may be the case at other schools as well.
