I'm having trouble connecting to the game, I get the error; "Connection error: Unable to connect to PVP.net server."

I know that there was a fix for this, but those fixes were for Vista and 7, whereas I'm running windows XP 32bit. I'm also on my school's wireless internet. I don't think that my college would be able to block something like this, but I'm just bored in class.

Anyone care to help me out a bit?

All college's aren't the same tho.

Are you able to play any other games, or use any other software that does not use port 80? (http servers use port 80).

If you can....

1. Make sure Windows Firewall allows LOL to use the internet.
2. Make sure any anti-virus software you have does not block tcp/udp traffic. (turn it off, or add LOL to its allow list)
3. in XP make sure you allow TLS. (look up in google how to do this)


To find if your college is blocking connections just telnet into the US server ip address to the proper ports for pvp.net(2099/5222/5223 i think?) (don't have it on hand, but im sure you can find it on the internet). If connection refused or something like that, you aren't blocked. If you can't connect, your traffic may be being blocked.
