    I need FTP and Firewall help!

    Here is the deal: I am on a university network that recently blocked all incoming peer to peer connections and I used to host an FTP. Basically, no one can connect to my FTP anymore and that really sucks.

    Do any of you know a way around this? Is there any conceivable way to bypass what the guys at networking have done? I realize that there may not be a solution - but if you have any suggestions, please post them. Thanks a lot!

    Talk to the networking guys and tell them what you need. If its not too outragious they will probably accomodate you.

    working at a university myself. Don't expect them to give you an ftp site unless you have a good excuse, not pr0n or warez. they may set up a site on one of their servers for your access but don't expect them to open a hole up for you. Unless they are stupid that is.

    Hmm... do they allow incoming connections to port 80? You could use a web-frontend to your FTP server... or use something like NetCat to redirect your server traffic so that people connecting in to your computer would have to use a different non-blocked port.

    Thanks for the replies so far. They've blocked all incoming connections and I even tried port 80.

    Also - the admins are stupid. I am currently talking to them about my 'web page image design ftp' that i need to host for my job. It's really a warez FTP so I hope they don't notice.

    I asked one of the guys if I could get broadband in my room and he was like, "No, you can't get DCL in there."

    You read correctly - DCL - not DSL but DCL. He even said it like 5 times so I know it was no mistake. That should tell you a little bit about the guys working at the networking department.

    Please keep the suggestions coming. Thanks again!

    Case - sorry, I wasn't trying to say that all tech guys are dumb. I was just pointing out how retarded they are at my school.

    I go to Saint Louis University by the way. Where do you work?

    I was hosting a 40GB FTP......I don't think that 100MB at a time would suffice. Thanks for the suggestion though.
