Some sources say that peer-to-peer file sharing programs like LimeWire use a variety of ports including ports 1214 outbound and ports 1214-8000 inbound. To block LimeWire ports you would also have to block TCP port 6346 and stop UDP port 6346. However, there is a post in a forum which infers that the user can choose the port which LimeWire uses. See the LimeWire program's menus - Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Firewall Config
It is now generally accepted that if you block access to those ports, file sharing applications like LimeWire will hop from port to port until they find an unblocked one, and will even use port 80.
If you try to block LimeWire etc. and they use port 80, blocking that port will stop access to all web sites.Relax... let TerminatorX solve your problems for you.
