I'm studying at University and wish to use Kazaa.  However this isn't possib;le as i believe i am behind a firewall.  I'm on a LAN and use a proxy server.  I've been told to try HTTP Tunnel but it doesn't seem to work.  Is there another way around this?

tools -> tab  "Firewall", this tab should be fine how it is. If you have a proxy server this is where you put the settings of your proxy

My advice - don't even try. I can only assume that Kazaa is not supported by the University, and you could be jeopardizing your stay by trying to circumvent the controls put in place to stop you.

We in this forum will spend much more time with your network admins trying to prevent just these types of workarounds, and EE rules prevent us from helping you with "cracks" or workarounds.

have you thought about asking where on the network p2p traffic is allowed?
at my college certain segments of the network are filtered differently then others. some allow ftp, some irc, some kazaa. just ask. it's not like it's illegal to use kazaa.
