Ports
I've been teaching a programming class at a high school and I'm working on giving them a networking project for their final. I figured out what I want to do but the problem is that all the ports at the school are closed and they've already told me that they're not going to open them for me. Does anyone have an idea for a workaround? Any ideas?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are you able to create a networked lab environment INSIDE of the school network?

    Ditto what AndreaF and Genderhayes said. Do it internally (all you need is two computers) or use email - just a basic email client/server setup using gmail should suffice.

    One more thing: I'd be really surprised if all ports were closed on a high-school network.
