Just VPN Out
Why deal with all this nonsense when you can just use an anonymous personal VPN service like https://vpnout.com ? All your data will be encrypted and it will look just like regular HTTPS traffic.
To the guy on Sky broadband: If they're blocking ports that use high bandwidth you'll benefit from VPNOut considerably... It runs on any port you want. So if Sky starts blocking, say, 5000 you could switch it over to 443 and be back in business in an instant.

You might as well do it the right way."
