Hi there

The place where I live (a dormitory) we have this big shared connection, which has a quite strict firewall, which does not allow a lot of the ports to be open.

I have this program My link, which because of the aforementioned does not work as it cannot connect. My question is then is there a way I can find out what port it uses, and then get that port open so I can use the program?

Hi there

It might not seem that trustworthy to state it now, but this is entirely in accordance with the rules for the use of the internet connection that applies at my dormitory.

The thing is that if I knew what port this program would use, I could tell them to open that port, something they would do. The hunch however is just that I do not know which port it uses, so I was merely trying to find a way to find out via you.

I hope for your understanding!
