Unblock p2p?

My university has decided to somehow block all p2p programs from being able to access the university server. I was told that there is a way to make the p2p program appear to be an internet application, basically making something like limewire look like safari to the server and then the p2p will work like normal. Is there a way to actually do this?

Re: Unblock p2p?

Any university that actively filters content is keenly aware of the traffic that travels across their network.

I suspect it would be foolish for you to attempt to fool your admins.

At the university I worked for, the policy on network abuse varied from throttling the connection to temporarily shutting it off until the offender was 'counseled'.

Small suggestion: don't!.

Seriously, don't. Don't put your education at risk by downloading crap on their network. Don't think your smarter than system engineers at a university. They've seen it all. Think you got the application masked? Well, can you also hide the huge amount of traffic increase?
