I am planning to join a Canadian university.I have learnt that in the Candadian University that
I am going to, the weekly bandwidth is limited to 5GB - Download, and 2GB - upload. For more details I checked out the 'Residence Internet Service' FAQ and have seen that there are ways to go around this (note: this seems to be legal as this FAQ is set up by the Ancillary Services of
the college itself).
The FAQ can be seen at this page: http://www.ris.ualberta.ca/itsupportfaq.htm
My question is regarding the Question 21 in the FAQ. Apparently it seems that P2P is legal in
Canada. It is written: "To utilize free unrestricted links either download P2P software that is
used by the universities (all Canadian universities are on CaNet4 network) or use an approach
described in FAQ 19" The details in FAQ 19 only shows from which link the data comes via. It
doesnt state how to make sure that all the data comes from the two non-commerical links. I
contacted them and they said that to ask an expert for help. So here I am!
Also regarding the P2P part, its written: "use an approach described in FAQ 19" Could someone please tell me how this is done? Can this also be done for IRC?
