Layer 7 firewall?
    #2152701 - 12/02/03 08:06 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Hello, im currently a networking student a small college in oklahoma. At this school all of us IT students have access to a 24/hour computer lab that has computers with removable hard drive docks. This allows every student to pretty much have our computer. I mainly have games on mine, I love to play internet games but am unable to do so because of a firewall. I was told the school has a layer 6 and 7 firewall, thus preventing me from playing online games such as americas army and vampire the masquerade. I assume that the layer 6 and 7 is referring to the osi model layers. Does anyone know of a way to go around this? Im fairly competent with computers, I have my A+ cert. and have finished net essentials and 2000 workstation classes. As well as first two semesters of ccna academy. Im fairly sure there is nothing i can do but one of the young instructors at school told me it could be gone around. Thank you

Short of a VPN I can't think anything that would help and not kill your ping.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis
