Kazaa Lite Probs! Could use some help
    #1844294 - 08/23/03 11:30 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I am at a university w/ a T1 connection, so I would expect downloads to finish quickly, but when I download something off kazaa, it goes like 1 kb per sec. All regular downloading works perfectly though? Could it have something to do with a firewall? What do I do to fix it? It is slower than my dial-up @ home.

Thanks

~Peace

Admins may limit traffic for the ports Kazaa uses.. see if you can change your ports, Options/Firewall/Use port 80 for incoming perhaps or experiment around, haven't tried any of that myself.

This is possible. Another possibility is that admins are completely blocking off file sharing programs for legal reasons- there's been a number of Universities and Colleges sued by the RIAA (boo! Hiss! :razz:) for copyright violations..but thats just my theory.

At my school, if you use a file sharing program liek that they disable your internet connection supposidly.

You've been capped. They've limited the badwidth that will go through port 1080. If you ever want kazaa to run faster you'll need to use a proxy. You can pay for a proxy program and get your higher speeds again. You can also find free proxies sometimes. This looks like a good program to do it

At least your not access is not being restricted for use though...

> I am at a university w/ a T1 connection

A t1 connection isn't that big anymore. It is about the size of 28 58k connections... if your school only has a single T1 and several hundred people downloading music all at once, you won't get a very fast transfer.
