    that's generally why firewals exist.
    It's either to keep evil away,
    or monitor whats coming in.

    Most schools have placed a cap on download
    What you might try, is set up an FTP site
    then have all transfers directed there.
    but that's even more nerdy than this.

    I thinks you're s.o.l.

    yeah i think he might be right, although here at work i use my T1 line, oh so fast, and we got serious firewalls...but the FTP is not bad nise, and im guessing you can figure it out....

    try http://www.cuteftp.com/index.shtml you can use it for 30 days free, its pretty easy...granted ive never uploaded with it, but it seems easy enough to do...its supposedly the most user friendly....check it out...r

  4. they are right, and if the ftp client is what your gonna do, I know ways to crack that 30 day bullshit. All shareware can be hacked.

    They block the ports that outgoing connections are allowed to use. This means, that they probably blocked every port except for what is absolutely necessary for network operation. Which means, no, you probably can't use anything except for the web browser, no telnet, no ftp, no irc, no nothing.

    Invest in a DSL or cable modem at your house.
