    Here on the resnet at the college, for some reason, they block the emule tcp port. it doesn't seem to matter what the tcp port it, it is blocked. i have tried to use the port that is used by ares, which runs great, and it still is blocked. I can connect just fine to any server, but I get a low ID. I can search and find files, and even find users for them, but over the course of a day, I might download 400kb on my 44mb/s connection. any idea of how to download files off the emule network?

    Just because you have a low id does not mean that you cannot download files off the emule network.. you shall just not be able to download off the other lowid clients.. which form about 30% of the total.. just select files with lots of people sharing the same and you shall face no problems.

    You will probably need to remove McAfee, as this is a one of the resource hogs of the firewall world, and can be a pig to allow certain applications to work..

    Perhap you better try Kaspersky Internet security...

    Not 100% sure but even Kaspersky is a memory hog.. NOD32 would be my choice. I use `avast' along with `sygate personal firewall' (yes had downloaded that when it was free and not yet taken over by Symantec), and have never faced any problems..
