    Im with and they have a major anti p2p policy and so they have blocked all the port ranges that most p2p software uses. I can request them unblocked but don't wana look like a dolt by saying "Hi I wana indulge in file sharing on your network, can you unblock my ports please " Hense why I could do with some programs names to use as reasons for me needing them unblocked.

    You can set it to any port and having a port open can improve the call quality because the calls from other users with unreachable machine can come direct to you instead of getting relayed.

    I think configuring you software to use available ports is the easier solution. As RealitY said, it's possible with most current tools.
