Then Don't - The firewall, being lame as those things are, probably looks
for *and logs* specific URL's and plain-text file names. So the first step
is to not use things that it recognises.

So *you* must have a proxy server *outside* the firewall to do the
downloading, then fetch through the firewall using some protocol that hides
the content - The combine of SSL and HTTP probably *will* go through

Since this is supposedly  relevant to Python, how about the proxy being
Shareaza "remoted" with Pythons XML-RPC over SSH using Wx-Python as a GUI?

Maybe even support streaming so all the "warez" reside on the proxy, yet the
music plays where you are; it's probably the safest way. "Don't shit where
you eat" - "They" come and kick the door in - but not at your place.

*That* would be a neat project.


Once you got your proxy setup, you do not really need to go through the
firewall at all. A DVD/RW goes straight through with lots of bandwith ;-)
