Internet in Dorms

Postby Action » Sun Aug 06, 2006 5:28 pm

Recently moved up to my dorm room in SC, and i think the fuckers blocked p2p networking and maybe gaming and ts? For some reason all my UT favorites servers appear down, and when i try to find them it wont as well as all my other games (CSS). As far as Teamspeak goes it will log in for about 1/2 second then just close it, and when i use Bearshare it downloads at about 19 kpbs (/w 10 connections)which is terribly slow. I know its a good connection because webpages load fast, and i can download other stuff from the internet really quick as well. Does anyone know if there is a way around this? or what the fuck?!?!

at my school, they limit p2p to their intranet. downloads are terribly slow
i havn't found a way to get around it.
it also depends on if you to a public or private school?

You are probably out of luck. A lot of campuses are becoming like corporations and are limiting certain programs that can be a potential risk for viruses, worms, etc.

It all depends on the policy of the school. Does your school have some kind of policy that states what is acceptable internet usage? If so, look through it and see if they provide a list of progs that are allowed and disallowed.

Ouch. That sucks, big time. I had to give up any and all gaming for 2 years while I was at school because they did that and I never could get around it. Hope you have better luck than I did.

If I was lucky, I could play early in the morning when everyone was sleeping and no one was on the network. Other than that, I was shit out of luck.

Glad to be out of that dump.

I don't knwo if this has been said, but have you tried connecting to a down server anyhow? I know that some of mine were port limited and had icmp blocked along with any other mechanism games used to check servers. But I could still connect to them, they just weren't seen as up.
