p2p clients....again....

Before anyone tells me to go search, this thread has a twist to it. I need not just any p2p client. I need a program that will allow me to use a user specified port. As I am now on a network where the ports for all the major p2p clients are blocked. I need a program which will allow me around this. Any ideas?

Unfortunatley, mosts p2p networks need you to run on certain ports otherwise they won't work.

I know the newer Win32 versions of Kazaa and Bearshare allow you to choose the port. Limewire is close to Bearshare, and there is a Linux version of it, you might wanna try that. Though I've heard its a system hog and makes plenty of people upset Might be your best option though.

LimeWire lets you change the port
I believe mldonkey does allow you too as well, although I dont really like mldonkey.. its not meant to be fast you can goto download like 100 things and only like 3 will actually start to d/l
