Peer To Peer

This company has come out with a software for enabling voice over peer to peer networks.
Now the million dollar question is : Has anyone tried tunnelling voice over secure http connections behind firewalls ? I would like to hear from someone who has tried or who is attempting to try. I can with all modesty claim to have a thorough knowledge of HTTP protocol and would like to try out something on those lins. My initial guess is that it is do-able. Encapsulating voice data in a HTTP packet might not be all that dificult is what i think !
Ah so why all this effort you might ask ? Well this is to see if this can be used behind behind those bat-shit corporate firewalls ;-)

    The cool thing about peer-to-peer technology is that you don't even need such tunneling vunneling stuff. All you need is a server that can give your peer's "local port" to you and do some TCP Hole punching that let's you neatly solve the problem of being behind a NAT.

    ya i tried this quite sometime ago.
    the problem remains is that if you are behind a firewall thas has opened 80,22,and a few other ports, it becomes virtually impossible for hole punching.
