    Default cable in UNI / college

    im going to going into hall in my uni and they have got internet in the halls so i got a few questions

    1) what speeds am i likely to get

    2) can you run a FTP or do they block ports so that you cant do this

    3) if you have used the uni's internet what was it like any good

    Hi there, i had uni in my halls a couple years back, i had a T1 connection , 10 Mb/s lets say if u never used broadband before, on this sort of connection you will be blown away, well compared to even 512k or 1Mb/s it kicks ass.
    more than likely u wont be able to run FTP as they block ports with firewalls etc, u may even find certain file sharing programms will also not run because of ports being blocked.

    just gotta see what happens when you try, although i would have a connection in halls any day of the week. say u download a song , mp3 format on 56k 4-5 meg file with transfer rates of 5-6kb/s in halls ur looking at anything on t1 line form 60-70k/s ,once i i had 800kb/s though bareshare and sharing within the uni network trasnfers of 1Mb/s - unbelievable speeds.
    during my time i download over 70 Divx Films and countless albums

    enjoy, im having my broadband 512k cable service in two weeks cant wait.

    you should be getting a 10mbit line. usually hooke up to the ja.net uk education and research lines. very very fast.

    as with sharing programs the ports are usually blocked. i would try tho to setup a ftp and see what happens.

    if you do setup a ftp and works you should get in contact to like me and u can get warez uploaded to you at very high speeds.
    if they speak o you about it say u where hacked which is believe me common nowadays.

    Yeah I had a connection in halls a couple of years ago at Mdx uni, believe me its a FAT pipe. But the thing was firewalled to ****. We couldnt do anything except browse the web although downloads from the web were anything up to 800k/s.

    I used to use a program called http tunnel and one called SocksCap32, have a search in google. they let you run progs blocked by the firewall through your http port.

    I know some unis are less strict than others though, and some have loads of open ports so u can do most things. I heard someone at my uni who was there a year or so before me started a massive ftp dump or somethin so they firewalledthe whole network =(

    good luck neway
