I installed OneSwarm hopeful that it would overcome my ISP's blocking of P2P applications. Unfortunately, this application too has succumbed to the blocking. So I am starting this thread to solicit some thoughts from others here as to whether or not there is a workaround.
What seems to be happening is that with some P2P apps although I can connect to a network per se, other peers are unable to connect to me. They are being directed to an IP address that is a black hole. Changing port numbers has no effect. I have even tried to use port 80 but no luck there.
One possible solution to all this is perhaps using a VPN service. But at this point I am looking for alternatives.
