University Firewalls

Hi, I have a chat client that I would like to use on my University computers but it wont connect to the Network. The Client is mIRC and Id like to use it for a Networking Lesson does anyone have any ideas how I can by-pass the Firewall to connect to the network please?

Thank you

Contact the Univ I.T. department and ask them to expose the internal network for you.

There are other clients available - you could use one of the desktop sharing solutions where users can SEE your computers desktop and also use a conference number to allow LOTS of users to share a session.

Very cool for safe chat. You can share a camera, a white dashboard etc.
