How To Unblock Limewire From A Campus Firewall?

Does anyone know how to get around a campus firewall? I believe that somehow the port is blocked, but, i don’t really know how to reconfigure everything. I’m on a mac. I know some of you may be tempted to write “it’s illegal” or “it’s blocked for a reason”. Please refrain, that’s not really an answer to my question 🙂


  1. Your school filter can detect a proxy as soon as you try it and either block it on the fly or notify an admin to block it manually. The bottom line is that all proxy’s will eventually get blocked. As the filtering software gets more advanced they will get blocked faster and faster.
    There is also the question of the rules and laws you are breaking by trying to hack your school security system.
    Finally even if you got a proxy to work for a short time you are inviting the proxy owner, many of whom are using the proxy for hacking purposes, to infect and or hijack your school network. Read more on the dangers of proxy’s below.

  2. Like i said before, the college blocked it. You either have to convince them to get it unblocked, try using another port, or find a way to get another internet connection.
