    Basically im living in uni halls and have network access for internet etc. The uni firewall blocks pretty much everything, but we are allowed to open udp/tcp ports.

    So far i have 3784 open as a UDP port, and when i try connecting to vent i can see the server and it connects, but only gets as far as the syncronizing part before timing out. Does anyone have any ideas on why this is happening and how i can solve it?

    Below is the information given by the uni
    Apologies for the triple thread, but when i tried to post last night, the forums timed out on me and made 2 blank threads....

    the note says he has the ability to open the ports he needs himself, he just needs to know what ports are needed for vent.

    Try opening 3784 for TCP and UDP, and 6100 for UDP, as I think it uses all 3.
