I need a P2P that works behind a FIREWALLED port-blocked college network!


Dear LinuxQuestions forum members,
This has been a source of greif for me for quite a while. I am behind a firewalled college network with the majority of the ports being blocked (to conserve bandwidth, yadda yadda yada). I can ONLY use one P2P client in Windows called SongSpy ( http://www.songspy.com ) and it works PERFECTLY in such network restraints. The question is this: Does anybody know of such a client that can work on Linux?

NOTE: I don't know which ports are open or what ports SongSpy uses. Is there a way to find out?

NOTE 2: I am still messing with wine so emulating SongSpy is still not a valid option

Someone Please help!



NOTE to moderators: Sorry if this is in the wrong section. I think its closest to the "networking" section as i could not find a section for "applications".

To find out which ports are being used, run into a command prompt and enter netstat -a

Somewhere in the list will be CONNECTED or LISTENING and maybe a prog name.
Then, turn yr spy on or off and netstat -a again.
Something will change...

Set up yr Linux ssh or whatever to use those ports.

Have you port scanned yrself from within the LAN?
try http://www.insecure.org/nmap for a nice local scanner...
Rgds.

What I suggest to is use an ssh tunnel or proxy to get by the restraints and from there do whatever you want.
