If someone has pirated software on their machine then they run the risk of being caught. I don't think this is the place to be asking of ways to allow the continuation of pirated software.

Mhhh.... why don't you use open source they have free software that you will not have to worry about getting caught or being blocked?

I would like to see if there is someone out there willing to help you break the law for points!

Very simple:

1. Install a decent firewall and manage your port settings carefully
2. Don't use pirated software. Developers spend months, sometimes years writing programs so they deserve to be paid for their work. Then, no body will see any pirated software on their system

I am not using any pirated software on my pc. I am just eager to know how people get away with that so easily.
