    Here at school they have this uber-ghey webfilter called "SQuid Guard" and it disallows access to kazaa. I'm here on my laptop and want to know if there's a way to bypass the filter and get into kazaa from here?

    TIA for any help you guys can give me.

    Kazaa is fairly difficult to get around. There are a few programs out there that proxy you out, but you lose some bandwidth, and even those can be blocked fairly easily.

    Hm, if you're really hardcore serious about using it, then you could setup a VNC server on your home machine, connect to it with VNC Viewer on your laptop, remotely download files on the home machine and then ftp them down to the laptop. A little more trouble than it's worth, but I think it would work ;)

    Or you could just not use Kazaa - try using newsgroups (Usenet). www.easynews.com is a pay service, ($10/month for 6gb) but it's about the best out there. Porn, Music, Warez, Games, whatever - and unlike Kazaa, you're highly unlikely to get false posts or viruses.

    Except if they are anal enough to filter out Kazaa, they'll typically filter out 119 as well. Usually the first few things one does to lock a system down.. filter incoming ftp, telnet, and outgoing ftp, telnet, and 119.
