I have stopped it before with IPCop and with Endian Firewall.  If I remember Endian was
a little easier to do so with where with IPCop I had to specify the ports manually that
I wanted to block.  Both are standalone distros that can be installed on a separate
machine and put in front of your network as a firewall.  Unfortunately for me, it was
decided that these students needed to fileshare.  So my excellent solution had to be
scrapped.  I don't remember much details but if you look at the distros it should be
fairly simple.
