      canceling cause you can't use a P2P piece of software? and for a reason that's completely isolated to your PC and nothing to do with Sky? seems a bit silly to me...

      Hi

      Limewire will more than likely require a port opening to work within your Sky Router.

      Try reading this Tutorial and use the same sort of reasoning and you should be fine.

      Sky User - Unofficial Help and Support for Sky Broadband and everything Sky! - Setup Skype on a Sky Netgear DG934G Router

      The only difference will be the port number and the application details.

      I wouldn't bother with limewire but if it you must... it isn't Sky,yet. try portforward.com I have several torrent and p2p applications running ok. I am sure if ISPs will try to block yet, if they can. sky by broadband is p2p and so is the BBCs iPlayer, that evil little kservice ****.
