The Fedora folks can help you install a torrent client but you won't receive any help on bypassing internet filters.

You are probably going to have to find access to another server off-campus if the Fedora 19 torrent is blocked by a firewall on your campus server. And any responses to your question will automatically be e-mailed to you. It's unnecessary and very unwise to post your e-mail address to this list.

Transmission comes installed with F19, which you can use to download torrent files. Some companies/universities block all torrents to stop people from downloading huge files (movies/series) that throttles the network all the time! There are ways to bypass it, but it is illegal! You will put yourself in huge trouble if they find it out!
