Question about steam download

Postby archeleus » Fri Jul 01, 2011 10:51 am UTC

I've two connections, one which is extremely fast that I use to download stuff (unlimited as well) but has the ports required by Steam blocked. The other connection is slower but is limited but has all ports open and has a better ping than the fast connection. Basically I want to download some games from Steam that I bought using the fast connection. Any idea how? (Steam totally does not even _start_ with this connection.)
I write a blog rant here.

Open the ports blocked?

The problem is not solved, thanks Talon.

Uni network, cannot open port.

Bring on more suggestions.

Send email to campus IT -> Ask IT to unblock (politely!)

If they say no, well, that's all there is to it.

No, it is solved. That is the only solution to the problem without changing any parameters. Move out, get your own internet, get something you can control.

And use the damn search function. Steam thread. Right there. Not hard to find. If you want to re-open a locked topic or disagree with a decision, PM me. Don't start a new thread.
