    Under my schools proxy network I am unable to access the file share network for Limewire.

    A while back I remember someone saying using Sysco's VPN program? But I completely do not understand that or, if thats even the correct solution.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Just burn a disc with all your songs on. Even better, bring a USB dongle with your mp3s on.

    Solution: Download the music you want at home and listen to it on your cd/mp3 player at school because I doubt you'll be able to get limewire running at school. Also I doubt you can download/install programs on school computers.

    It would be really hard to get limewire to work at school, for a start, most schools would probably block java apps, then they would block all non-essential ports so it can't connect, and they would probably have limewire specifically blocked anyway... you might be able to get it to work through a VPN but chances are, they have that blocked too.

    What you doubt and what actually is are two different things.
    I can download whatever the hell I want on my computer, I am looking at the Limewire startup screen as we speak. It is a matter of getting past the network blocks, not installing the program onto my computer.

    I know there is a solution, I don't know how to do it.

    Wow your school lets you install stuff? Cool lol..

    It would be pretty hard getting past the network blocks... how does your school connect to the internet? Do you get a username and password to connect to it? Does it go through a proxy server?

    its a proxy server.

    LimeWire is the worst file sharing network evar.

    It's full of viruses and trojans. I use Soul Seek and it doesn't suck ass like Limewire.

    Torrents are better (utorrent is a good program)
    Limewire is full of virusies and is slowly being wiped out

    Edit :
    Schools wont want you using a downloading program becuase of copyright stuff (you might be downloading the newest film)
    but you are downloading MP3s and most of them are copyrighted

    uTorrent takes forever. because you have to search for each torrent.
    and is only used by people think they are 1337.
    when in fact they aren't.

    Torrents are cool for people with a fast net conncetions, Limewire is ideal for the dial-up people...Be sure to have norton anti virus or another good antivirus software installed before using it though.

    Dude, I really don't know why you can't just do it at home. Anyway, Limewire sucks and it's riddled with more viruses than you can shake a stick at.

    As above I use frostwire but on my Windows XP box. It's a java app remember, it'll run on anything. When I was at school I would SSH to my server at home and then tunnel through that to connect to MSN. I suppose you could do the same thing with limewire (I recommend downloading frostwire just because it's not full of ads). If you already have a linux box at home (or maybe somewhere else) and have any idea how to use putty then you may be in luck. Otherwise, just download your music at home
