    your college most likely block the common P2P ports...
    Direct Connect 411 - 413
    Kazaa 1214
    eDonkey 4662
    Gnutella 6346 - 6347
    BitTorrent 6881 - 6889

    do not use any of these ports, instead you will have to configure your client to use other ports, try higher port numbers and be random, but no higher than 65536,

    The above post might work... But i'd be careful some colleges keep very close eye out for p2p activity and could very well get you thrown out if caught...
