For those of you who have a video game console to play online, network and/or P2P (peer-to-peer) games, read on: You may not currently be able to connect to your game’s online network because, by default, Judson's firewall ports are not open. If you would like to request that the ports for your game be opened, please submit a request to IT here. IT opens ports at the beginning of each semester. You can make a request at any time during the semester, but the deadline to have ports opened is Friday of week two of each semester. To find the information to submit the request, check the video game company’s website or knowledge base. (Usually a Google search will get you to the correct place.) Keep in mind, IT will not open large ranges of ports due to the security risk of doing so. Please find as specific information as possible.
