I use the Opera browser on Windows XP and I recently downloaded limewire and ares file sharing programs. None of them can connect and I am sure its because of the firewall installed.

I'd like to know if it is possible to go behind this firewall and download the files I want?

Hi Hommenoir.
There are tons of firewalls out there.
Are you referring to XP's built-in firewall?
See here for Limewire using the most common firewalls.
What version of Ares?

I would be careful about downloading any P2P files at work, since they may often contain viruses, and the entire practice may be forbidden by your company for that reason. Certainly any attempt to bypass your company's security system could have serious consequences not only to your company but also to your continued employment there.
