HI,
It does work if the firewall is not configured to intercept the ports used by the bittorent. In that case you have to use some form of tunneling, look at
http://dessent.net/btfaq/#proxy for details.
If you are behind some company or university network, I don't think it is that hard for the admins to detect that you are using tunnelling and that may have some drastic consequences (I know students who were almost explled since they were using tuneeling for downloading some illegal material ...)

good luck,
Oumer

yes it does work even if you have a firewall....but before that, you can read these for your reference.

basically it depends on whether you have access to the proxy/firewall setttings. if you dont you wont be able to make it work.  

tunnelling requires an online computer setup with the appropriate software at the other end of the tunnel.
