How can I play all the games if I am behind a firewall?

Q: How can I play all the games if I am behind a firewall?
A: Many companies and organizations restrict access to outside data using a "firewall". A firewall is a set of policies, which permit some activities and deny others. This is accomplished through software installed on the organization's networks. If a company only permits activity for duties they perform and know about, they know they can feel safe keeping the Web ports open.
If you try to play one of our games and the game software on your computer is unable to connect you to our game server, you will see a blue notification box telling you that you might be behind a firewall. Try selecting the option that says, "I might be behind a firewall. Try bypassing a firewall once." This will set the game software to connect you to our game server using the same port as your internet browser, which should get through the firewall and allow you to play the game.
If that works, then you can set the game software to always bypass your firewall by selecting, "I am sure that I am behind a firewall. Always connect bypassing it." This will prevent you from seeing the firewall notification in the future.
If you try to bypass the firewall and are still unable to play the game, then you may need to try turning off the firewall software (if you are on a home computer). Or, you may be experiencing a different issue, such as a problem with your internet connectivity.
