To be more specific, when I try to use transmission in between classes, or even connect to ichat, it just wont happen. Same with online games and steam. AIM works though, and I can use the internet.

Do I need to bypass something?

Thanks : )

your internet connection goes through a proxy server which does all the funky filtering and is implemented for good reasons. ;)

Bummer, this only happens at the community college, at the University everything works.
