    Arrow fricken uni firewall
    Hi I have recently got to university and the firewall is annoying me i cant aaccess aim i cant access ichat and i cant play games is there anyway i can disable the firewall when i go to the mac osx firewall settings its disabled and it says if i want to enable it then i have to disable the current firewall which is running, i never did install any software to get the internet working , i just plugged in the adsl lead so basically i want full control over this firewall by disabling it and enabling or disabling the apple osx one when needed.

    thanks

    Cool
    I don't think it is your firewall that is causing the problem. It is possible that the university is blocking very thing at their firewalls.

    Nope they are blocking everything through some of their own hardware or their own software so there is nothing you can do about it

    The university is blocking various ports at their routers, gateways, bridges and whatever devices they are using to build their network.

    Which makes it hard for the end user.
