View Full Version : At college, Steam never updates, can't play!!!
I am at college, and the install went fine. Then when I clicked on the HL2 icon to play, Steam started and said it was updating, but it never left 0%.
Is there something wrong here? I am dying to play this game!

talk to your college computer help dept. hope to god they haven't blocked ports that you need for steam to function properly.
What ports exactly must be opened for Steam to function properly?
Also, is there any way for it to work without Steam authentication?

It's already been confirmed that some colleges block the ports Steam requires to connect.

Valve is going to get an ear full for this crap, im sure.

and those college network admin will say
"this isn't high priority" - reads: ignore you
I wonder why people complain if they cannot play at work or at college :P
IT administrators usually do block ports to prevent people from playing or downloading warez and pr0n stuff while at work !

hmm...only thing I can think of is try dial-up to connect.
