    Hello everyone

    I need some help with my office Sonic firewall that blocks utorrent from downloading torrents so the utorrent is stuck at "finding peers". I've read and tried everything I could off the internet to make it work but no joy.
    Things Ive tried:
    1) modifying advance settings in utorrents to "true" "false" of settings as per some blog on internet.....NO HELP
    2) tried using Tor browser but I could only access torrent sites with it that I can't do with regular browser but Utorrent doesnt work with tor proxy
    3) Tried a couple of free proxies out there but none of them work

    Pls let me know if there is a real way to make it work that is free

    Thanks

    P.S Note to all the folks that would like to use their "wisdom" and give their free advises like "How about you stop using company resources, be grateful you have a job and do some work?" or some other advice pls stay off. This post is not for you.

    Try booting from safe mode and see if its protected. You can also try using using private proxy. Public ones are pretty much usseless.

    Exactly. You're supposed to work. That's why it's called "work". Also, I seriously doubt that it would be your local firewall blocking you. It's likely an office-wide firewall that protects the entire network, so you can adjust whatever settings you like on your PC, but you won't get past it anyway.

    Pls grow up and if you are not of help due to lack of knowledge or just being envy of something then pls do not trouble your eyes and fingers to read and write in a post like this.

    There's not much you can do. I own and installed sonicwalls for several doctor offices, and it strictly prohibits downloading from unknown sources, as well as all EXE files.. and that's the point!

    Your companies IT department, or vendor would have manually to disable it, to allow downloads. And they damn sure won't for someone to download an illegal torrent and potentially infect their entire system.

    Besides, I agree above.. download torrents on your own time and resources.

    sorry to say that you guys are really dumb. There is a way out but I am sure you guys do not know it and in frustration just writing envious things. I'd wait and see if someone generous enough would share their knowledge.

    I would not go around calling respected members "really dumb". It is not a good look. Especially if you are seeking advice from other members.

    I'am looking to download some tutorial files to enhance my knowledge so pls do not judge what it is for. But asking this to and IT person in my office and explaining all this makes no sense as this doesn't seem very noble task and they certainly will not make it a very important issue and ask for exception from their IT head for this.

    You are a CLOWN, SonicWALL is designed to stop you from doing what you are trying to do.
    It isn't a standard Firewall, it will also be logging all your attempts to defeat it. Your IT department will be onto you soon.
    I really hope you get caught and get sacked, then you might realise that you are employed for a reason and not to download donkey porn.

    True. I have never been so envious for someone having a firewall blocking their internet access at work. All the restrictions I am missing out on :(

    OMG I can't believe IDIOTS like you still exist. Have you heard of HTTP?? May be not then you surely wouldn't know that torrents can be downloaded on another server (usually they are paid and I was on this forum to find out if there are any free ones that are safe to use) and they those servers give you an HTTP link to download just like any other download.
    I'd not pray for you to get sacked from your job for being so bad a person. But i'd pray that you get some good manners.

    Exactly ...Thank you

    It doesn't matter if I am paid or a volunteer my point is that torrents are not always for bad purpose and there are sites out there that offer torrents for educational purposes and the intention of Inventors of torrents was certainly not evil.
    Sometimes companies block torrents because some ppl do use it for their pleasure or for downloading "Donkey porn" just like our respected member W130SN

    I can't get sacked, I work for myself, you muppet.
    Don't change the subject once you have been outed for being a worthless employee.
    You sound like you are getting stressed, you should take some time out, download a good torrent and chill for a bit.
    Hold on, you CAN'T because you are a CLOWN.
    Good Manners would be not joining a Forum, asking for advice and then disagreeing with the opinions and insulting people.
    So take the rest of the day off, as your employer will surely not miss you.

    Hello again IDIOT I am off work right now as I am at home...Office will start in a couple hours....oh wait who am I talking to "the one who sits around all day and calls himself 'self employed' "
    Also I think ppl like you sit around and watch every bite download in their torrent client and get excited of their accomplishment. Just a little knowledge for you. PPl like me if in office would use a computer that is not much used and would set a torrent running on it and get back to my work till it's finished withthe download.
