Getting past port filters

Hey, hopefully I'm posting this in the right part, and hopefully you'll be able to help me. I'm currently at Uni in london living in halls, using uni internet. It's nice and fast and all, but a lot of stuff seems to be filtered out (I assume it's the ports which are filtered, but I don't know much about it tbh). I'm mainly looking to get a few programs to work like teamspeak and ventrilo, and some other games. I've tried looking for programs which forward the ports to 80 or something but I really don't know enough about the subject to be fiddling with too much stuff.

So if anyone has anything useful they can tell me that'd be great as it's a pain in the behind.
Thanks in advance

Hey there The Sister, welcome To Geeks To Go Forums.

Well the standard http port is port 80 and I have not heard of forwading to other ports. Yes it filters the ports but there is a program used for doing that. So what program are you running that may be blocking out certain stuff??? What firewall do you have?

Like I said, it's not my connection, it's a University connection. They're the ones filtering the ports, not me. I was wondering if there's a program or something which can re-route all my other programs through a useable port.

Hey there Sister, there is nothing we can do to help you if that is the way your University set up the connection.

The university put filters on so that prevention of virus and other bad content can be blocked out. This is like a rule set by the university, and we would not want any rules being broken.

Sorry. :whistling:
