Kazaa lite will try to use port 80 if other ports that it usually uses are not available.

That said, kazaa is rubbish anyway. Bit torrent, FTPs, newsgroups and direct connect are all better.

Cambridge uni has an absolutely massive internal direct connect network...
It can be hard to find stuff on torrent, unless you know where to look, almost all (good)FTPs require you to know someone who will hook you up and you must have stuff they want too, newsgroups require a subscription. direct connect is great if you find a good hub.

kazaa is the best choice for the casual user, who doesnt know or doesn't have time to go through the steps other filesharing methods require.

I suppose but the best stuff takes quite some time to filter through to the "casual" networks like Kazaa.
