Hi all, Iīm a student at a kind of a boarding school and thereīs wireless internet, but some ports are being blocked by some firewall and thus I canīt play WoW up here. Does anyone have some ideas to how I can get my computer to bypass the firewall? I miss WoW

i'm guessing they have those blocks on those ports specifically so you don't use up lots of bandwidth playing games like that.

Exactly. If you want to play the game, then you will have to talk to the school's IT department.
Nobody here will be able to help you crack or undermine a school's firewall.
