How to block peer-to-peer on port 80

I am seeing a growing number of clients using port 80 for torrents and other peer-to-peer sharing. Is there some way that the IDS or the PEF can be configured to block this?

Re: How to block peer-to-peer on port 80

Unfortunately, we cannot because we do not have application-level visibility on port 80. In the user role, however, you can reduce the number of firewall sessions allowed per user. By default it is 65535, but you can reduce it to something like 200 to prevent establishing and maintaining alot of peer to peer sessions.
