It is fairly easy to get a firewall to allow this *if you are in charge of the firewall*. I assume that you'd need to configure the proxy as a reverse proxy (= an accelerator): see http://www.squid-cache.org/Doc/FAQ/FAQ-20.html for details. In practice, this means that you need a friendly sysadmin who is willing to reconfigure his or her Internet protection to enable very large downloads that might not be related to the purpose of the link. Personally, I'd do it in a private setting, but not on a business line (I have *enough* trouble keeping bandwidth usage and ping times reasonable, thankyouverymuch). If you don't do this, you'll only get the downloads. This means you're leaching off the purpose of the torrent, and you'll be pushed to the back of the queue for bandwidth. Hope this helps, James. -- E-mail address: james | John's Inverse Law of Physics: @westexe.demon.co.uk | You do Physics -- you get inverted.
