Currently I am living in University halls, this means my internet connection is connected to a huge area network. I quite enjoy doing some online gaming if I am not with friends or not working or whatever, it's a good way for me to relax. However, in my university contract it does state that you "should" be able to connect to multi player games. However, on every game I have tested it does not work, accept for Valve games on steam. So, Counter Strike Source and Day of defeat source both work. COD4 from a normal CD does not, but also from steam does not. So I am assuming it's something about the ports that the games are running off and the university is blocking.

Does anybody have a solution for this ? A friend suggested I try using a ports canner and then change the ports around ?

If that's a good suggestion, could anyone recommend a good user friendly port scanner ?

Kind Regards, Cripp0

We don't assist in circumventing the network policies of the school. You would want to check with the university that the ports for those games are beingi blocked. Most universities that I know of do block gaming traffic to prevent overutilization.
