## bandwidth priorities

hey guys,
i need a hand here. the metwork at my school is running some new sowftware that prioritizes the bandwidth. this in turn limits the bandwidth to the lower priority items. for example, the internet now downloads at 350 kb/s but "napster-like" programs will not even download at 1 kb/s. my question is, how (without physically going and changing the priorities) can i get around this problem? i have been messing around with it a little and i am not even sure that it is possible at this point. but if anyone has any ideas, let me know.

thanks,
Lord DarkSide
