IPconfig question?

Hi
I recently discovered a new entry in ipconfig, three entries detail a 'tunnel adapter', does anyone know what a tunnel adapter is.
Take the following into consideration
my comp is on a university network, which is in turn served by JANET (i think thats some kind of academic ISP that serves alot of the uni's around this area) and my network card still shows up in ip config seperately. As you might have quesed i have no idea what i'm talking about but you should have all the infom needed.

it's for bypassing the college/uni network proxy server that stops IRC etc by blocking ports. click here 4 more info.

Thanks...
would this cause probs with other apps. like for example could it lead to kazaa using a higher proportion system resource, or would it prevent the network from recognising my computer as one than belongs to that network.

Thanks anyway :)

some of the Kaaza 3rd party utils are "hacked" versions and contain lots of bugs such as memory leaks etc...(at best)... it could be a file you've downloaded contains a server (trojan) and is using extra resources when your running Kaaza, especially if your tunneling Kaaza (no f/w or a/v running)...
