Don't have much experience with that, but if I am not mistaken its going
to be hard to do without installing a proxy and then allowing internet
connection only through the proxy. You can then block all connections
going out except those originating from the proxy server.
The fact that you are behind a firewall already blocks some of the
traffic since they can only connect to servers that are not behind a
firewall, but these programs don't use a specific port for outgoing
connections and I don't think a standard firewall can understand these
I suppose that asking people not to use p2p programs is not a workable
