How do I make Steam work on the University Network?

Information Services does not offer support for non-academic use of the network but you may find these instructions useful if you are trying to connect to Steam while on our network.

Users should be aware of the regulations governing usage of the network for non-academic purposes ( Where can I find that? )

To connect to Steam from the University network you will need to open several holes in the University Firewall ( How do I do that? )

For information on which destination ports need opening, check Steam's recommended list here

From user feedback, the following setup allows most Steam games to run.

This screenshot is provided for reference only and Information Services cannot offer further support for Steam.

Note: The Firewall updates once every morning. You must wait for this ( Further Information )
