Re: Napster & other bandwidth hogs

The data port is set in the user config... however, Napster's servers seem
to be within the 208.178.175.128/29 block.

There is a Napster FAQ at http://napster.cjb.net/ which could be
useful... there's also a protocol specification wandering around, but I
can't find it any more.  -rt
