Help with internet games

Ok, so this isn't your basic prot forward to play games behind a lan, I am in a halls of residence at uni, and they have blocked ports so that I can't play games, although they said if I could find a way around I am free to do so. Unfortunately the person I spoke to wasn't very technically minded, so they said "We have 2 ports blocked.. One for games and one for file transfer"

So I can't use FTP/SHH etc either

How can I play games across the internet behind this router, considering I don't know what type of router it is, what the username and password are, and I don't have a dedicated server to do things with, like host a proxy.

Any help will be welcomed, and I will be answer any questions I can

even though the person you talked to said "if you can find a way around...you're free to do so"...this still seems to be a school policy....otherwise they wouldn't be blocking those ports....and without them giving you access to their router (good luck) you're not gonna get the settings you want changed.....

We here at Geeks To Go cannot help you get around any sort of administrative restrictions imposed on a School, Work, or any other network not owned and operated by yourself. These restrictions can include (but are not limited to): Website Blocking policies, Software Installation policies, Email retention policies, Software Configuration policies, Network/Internet usage policies, Network Configuration policies, Forum or Chat Room Bans, Game Server Bans, or any other actions that are deemed "unauthorized" by the owners/administrators of the network in question. Any actions by members of the Geeks To Go site that would be offered to help in this manner would directly violate the http://geekstogo.com...?act=boardrules" target="_blank"> TOS of this site.
