I am having trouble connecting to a program called DC++, a filesharing program. My University provides a private hub for students apart from public hubs, but I am having difficulties connecting to the school's hub. I believe it has something to do with my ports but I am not completely sure. So far I've tried disabling my firewall but that doesn't seem to do much. I am relatively computer illiterate but I do know that filesharing runs through a certain port but don't know what to do from there. Just a side note: I run Windows XP. Thanks for any help.

The easiest thing to do would be to contact the IT dept. and ask what ports to use and if file sharing is allowed on the college's network
