its true that using p2p clients is not illegal, its what u use them for that MAY be and i find mIRC daunting. anyway try dis link. www.http-tunnel.com/html/solutions/http_tunnel/client.asp. it allows u to use sockets server that MAY (repeat,MAY) allow you to bypass firewalls.

I think that to assume someone is doing something illegal because he wants access to p2p is fascist BS. Like killmon said, ISP's just want to oversell their bandwidth. One VERY LEGITIMATE usage of P2P is the updater for World Of Warcraft!!! I am so tired of you corporate stooges bowing to the will of the Corporations who think they have more right to make money because they have more money. The RIAA and such organizations (and the organizations they represent) do not add any value to the products they sell, in fact they reduce the overall quality of the art by siphoning profits from the artists and force feeding us American idol crap! All the ISP's have to do is take a stand and say that they are not responsible for what their customers do with the resources they sell. But just like with ATT and the NSA ( see http://www.eff.org/ ), we get sold out instead of taking a stand for freedom. Jefferson wept. Anyway, call your ISP and complain that you want the right to use p2p services. If they ask you why, tell them it's none of their business, and if they press you, say you want it for World of Warcraft. Other than that, try to find an ISP that is not Nazi, and donate and become an active member of the ACLU and EFF. If you don't stand up for your rights, who will?

As far as I am concerned, all their reps are reputable. The commission they earn is generous enough for them not to be tempted to run away with your money. Just choose the rep closest to where you live!

Seun, i have an account wth them but where can i get a reputable rep here in Nigeria. And what's the issuing bank for graphcard.

www.graphcard.com worked for me with Itunes. However, you need a 3ghz pentium 4 processor to play their video - I learnt this the hard way. it's a pity that African songs are not available on the Itunes Music store.

www.graphcard.com works for me though I haven't used the card with Itunes yet.

Some banks (I know of Zenith & UBA - former STB) offer the chance to get Mastercard without owning an account with them.

Not really.

IRC is a lot more geeky than other programs. You have to constantly watch for openings and quickly type in those silly triggers.  And the wait time is way longer, since irc is used by a whole lot more people around the world.

Personaly it's not worth my time.  There are all kinds of stores in my city with killer bargains on CD/dvd's.

besides IRC isn't that bad if you know your way around. just last week i downloaded two 700mb (1.4GB) files. it took about 5-6hrs - not too bad. you just have to know your way around.

Oh, I see.

You must have the patience of a saint to get files via irc, since you have to stay on queue sometimes for long hours before download begins.  Never mind the fact that you're exposing yourself to serious viruses from guys looking to make your system into an emailing zombie.

Since it's most likely the ISP did/will not block IRC port so you can use that to transfer the file.

Me think that you should complain to your ISP. you can't have limited access to something you're paying for.

I believe eDonkey allows you to alter the port on your localhost, off course your ISP will notice the spike in traffic and shut you off if they are serious about p2p. Like oasis said there are lawsuits flying around, particularly in the US. Most people share only open source stuff, their personal recordings or Indecency to avoid trouble.

What they mean is that you can download files illegally over IRC. You know, I'd go for the Itunes option any day!

What has IRC got to do with bypassing firewalls? Maybe you know something I don't.

You can try IRC[i] (but i doubt if you will be able to use P2P programs with it)[/i] or an external proxy server.

I don't want to speculate on what you use those programs to download, but The RIAA frowns upon file sharing clients.  There were a rash of heavy fines on people, that were highly publicised to scare everybody off.  Now they're going after isp's to track the use of such clients and turn in the users.

I think you should accept the fact that they're illegal softwares and let go.

P2P tools like Morpheus, Kazaa, BearShare, LimeWire, shareaza, winmx, etc are used mostly for illegal activities.  Although they can be useful in swapping open source software too.  For example, a lot of people use bit torrent to get their copy of Linux.  Therefore, while your isp is trying to protect the bad, you're also unable to put the programs to good use.

Hmmm, I really can't help you there. It's usually not legal anyway, so why not get a credit card and go to the Itunes Music store to buy your favorite music at the rate of $1 per song? It's pretty cheap, you know, even by Nigerian standards.

For every program/software there should be a way to change the port number.  Port number is part of the transport layer of the OSI Model (Open Systems Interconnect).  This where all the necessary network service that provides end-to-end communications between two parties, while hiding the details of the communications network.

Any application developer that is interested on its application to communicate between one or more people must have a transport layer programmed into its application, hence you ISP blocking a port only means that they are blocking the well known ports and you could redirect you traffic through another port.  Applications are for example smtp, ftp, ssh, vsftp, http, https, imap, pop, pop3, icmp, udp tec.

Finally, like site administrator said tell us your problem we would advice you alternative method.

Your isp is your gateway to the Internet. So if they're blocking certain ports for some services, there's little you can do. But like Seun said, if you share what it is you're trying to do, somebody may be able to suggest a workaround. For example, if port 80 is blocked, you can always use other ports to run your local web server.

You can't disable your ISP's firewall. You can only work around it. Tell us what you'd like to do and we'll try to let you know how you can work around the firewall.
