lol well it's "easy", gain administrative rights on the firewall (server), change the settings, clear the logs (if there are any) and voila, you're done, you can do whatever you want. But than again, breaking into computers is illegal and if you ever get caught you're in big troubles.
So the best thing to do is don't do things you're not supposed to and pay attention in your cs classes.

Other options are such things as an http tunnel. A good example of a program that does just this is http://www.http-tunnel.com. You can tunnel over more that just http, just find an open port and use it.

Thanks, i will remeber that Predator and i think i might try the http-tunnel sounds like a better idea... but how well do they work... i heard they can really mess up you computer.
