    Ok. So I'm located in a University where the Internet Dorm is behind proxy that disables Internet Applications that involve P2P networking, sometimes Java applications and torrenting.

    Ironicly, however, I got to get World of Warcraft going. While this question is game related, its mainly concerning Networking so please keep your eyes on the post.

    I got this new game called Warhammer Online, port's blocked and I think I may have found the required port. I'm capable of contacting Help Desk to ask them to unblock this port, but I'm not sure if I wanna tell them that its a game.

    So, my question is, can I lie and claim that its a port for some program without them finding out? (Unless they do some research)

    Sorry, but we don't be a party to bypassing the school's network restrictions. The point of them blocking such ports is to keep the network running for real school activities.
