    Unless the admin opens the ports for the game to use I see no way around it

      I had this problem. Just email the network administrator with the ports that UT requires to be open and ask him if he can unblock them.

      If he's a nice guy then he'll open them for you and you'll be able to play. If not then your out of luck.

              Here is a list of some ports to open:

              7778
              7777
              7787
              7788

              42292
              27900

              99% sure all those will let it work with no problems

                  If I ever tried something like that, they would laugh in my face.

                    You shoudn't say the ports are for a game.. then the admin will most likely not open them...

                    Say it's for some fictional school related application...

                      Just say its for a new app that increases hand, eye coordination, finger dexterity, reaction times and teamwork (TDM, assult). It uses the network to transmit statistics to other machines so you can telll how your doing.

                      Hey it's not lying!!!!! :haha:
