Can't they still setup an external proxy on one of these ports and still 
bypass it? If I was a student I would setup apache in proxy mode on my 
Road Runner connection (requiring a username/password) and set it to 
accept connections on various ports that have a good chance of being open, 
such as 20,21,22,23,25,443. 

A good site to see what students can do is http://peacefire.org/. It 
appears they have a program called circumventor which lets the students 
get around you're filtering even without changing the proxy server. It 
also uses SSL to encrypt the transmission so you can't even see what's 
going through. I don't know how to stop this one.
