  1. Hi,

    We have ISA firewall installed in our network which only allows http/https communication. Is it possible to run azureus somehow?

    Are you talking about a residential network or a business network?

    It rely on the port-forwarding, not by firewall.

    Do you mean it can forward P2P ports to http (8080 in my case) ?

    depends on how its set up (guessing. maybe wrong)

    In any case, talk to your network admin or IT guys. There may be a reason its set up to block P2P transfers.

    They have set it to block all other ports. Of course because they don't want P2P traffic.

    Then you are out of luck. Very sorry.

    Same thing happens at my old school.

    No worries about that. Someone has set it for them. They themselves even don't know how to update an Antivirus :D
