I think some other guy hinted at this - apologies if you already
figured - but several p2p systems will happily use port 80, and some
faqs/manuals (eDonkey etc) even encourage (manually) setting this as
a quick/dirty firewall getter-rounder.

Perhaps you need to go deeper than just a port, but I've never done
that stuff - sorry can't be more help there.

so (one more time..) , layer7 (application layer) patch for iptables
is what You want.
