    my school currently seems to have a lot of file sharing programs blocked... i.e. mIRC, kazaa, emule, morpheus, Ares, etc. Is there any way to get around this? They made us install smart enforcer on all of our computers. If we so much as download any of these more common file sharing programs we won't be able to access the internet until we uninstall it. I assume I could find one that they dont know about, then change the port (like with mIRC)... but how do i find an open port?

    apprently you can use something called 'http tunnel' which lets you access net apps regardless of firewall. dont ask me how this works or how to use it because ive never tried it myself.....never had the need to.

    yeah, i have tried http tunnel and the like but it is way to slow. takes a while to load a webpage or download anything. worse than 56k. does anyone know of any alternatives?

    @fun4stuff,

    You need to click on the tab at the top "My Account" -> then "edit personal information" -> change your signature field.
