Why Won't my Game Work?

Our network is not designed the same way the network that a console or gaming PC is designed around. Because of this, many games are designed to require that network traffic flow in a specific way that our network will not allow. Most often this is apparent in being unable to connect to the voice chat features of games but there are games that require a security model that cannot be supported on a network such as ours for security reasons.

Is There Anything I Can Do?
