I cannot access Skype to communicate with my friends and family.

I am blocked from any website that uses a webcam.

I cannot play any sort of online gaming for my own entertainment.

But why?

Why can every other university do all of the above except Canterbury Christ church?

It's not that Resnet can't handle any of it, it's just that for some unknown reason CCCU decide to block it all. Utter bull****.

Possibly the most ridiculous and pointless port blocking in the entire world.

My school's network had google blocked for a few months a while back. Ridiculous.

Apparently they block those sort of things because they "hog the network resources" their words

Im in the same boat mate.

Hi there, Just to let you know CCCU's internet service has changed and been updated since this post was made in 2010. Skype and online gaming are both unblocked, and there will be a new Resnet service launched ready for the start of the new academic year 2017-18.

It seems as though the introduction of ResNet has made online gaming blocked again as all the routers are set to NAT type 3
