Hi,

Where I attend school, they have blocked access to a lot of popular multiplayer games on their network (BF2, LoL, WoW, TOR, etc). Is it possible to play one of these games on my laptop while on campus, but over my home network which is 10 miles away? I commute to class everyday and I didn't know if it was possible to do this.

Thanks!

Yes you can. The long and the short of it is you need a vpn device of some type at your house you can VPN into. Once you can VPN into your home network you can use you home network normally. Unless your school blocks VPN outbound there is nothing they can do as the packets bound for your home network and the internet would be encapsulated and encrypted. Meaning they can't see the payload of the traffic so they do not know what it is.

The cheapest thing to do is run OpenVPN on a PC on your network or on your router if it supports it.

Hence why I mentioned the methodology and not the steps or any real details.

Which is exactly that...without or without the steps involved.

Yes, it is possible and as was well covered nobody here will help you circumvent the school policy. I believe that covers it.
