    Use a proxy thingy, I think Hide IP is the program.
    And a firewall that supports P2P protection such as Kaspersky and one more thing that is said to protect you from the big guys..Peerguardian 2

    Download those and you should be safe

    Hide IP only works for browsing...U can try enabling encryption in utorrent (set it to forced). I think he's concerned abt the college authorities detecting p2p traffic, not the MPAA or RIAA...so Peerguardian is useless too.

    You'll not be able to hide what you d/l. They have the tools to monitor whatever you do. My advice: don't go into it, as it's guarenteed you'll get caught.

    its not a guarenteed caught
    I did it for a year at my college, but they could detect it easally if they knew the kind of packets torrent files send out

    They dont even need to look at packets being sent and recieved. Its pretty obvious what your up to by looking at the amount you download and upload. If you download 30 gigs and upload 30 gigs a month it just screams file sharing. current connections is also a give away being connected to 30 ip addresses at once isnt very common when web browsing but upwards of that is for p2p.

    Doesnt mean filesharing.... Theres lots of stuff you can do legally even transferring 200gigs a month. Some colleges allow you to host your own domains off your pc there. He could easily be hosting a website that gets alot of traffic

    lol,thanks for all your help btw!Im still unsure what to do. A guy suggested changing the port used in Utorrent to the standard one on msn and going on late at night when downloading, that way it wont be the normal torrent ports. does that make sense to anyone?

    You can change it to any variety of ports. Utorrent even has the option to always start on a differant port as well. (Works good if your not using a router or firewall which blocks ports)

    I would just set it on random port. Then turn the encryption on which several people have already mentioned.
