In response to customer comments, IT Services have amended the firewall ruleset for Eduroam at all University of Reading campuses. This change means that we now permit all traffic to the Internet via Eduroam apart from:

* SMTP (port 25)
* 6in4 tunnels (protocol 41)
* MS RPC (port 135)
* MS SQL Server (ports 1433 and 1434)
* MS CIFS (ports 139 and 445)
* MS Teredo (port 3544)
* TFTP (port 69)
* SNMP (ports 161 and 162)

This has been tested from the Whiteknights, Greenlands and Malaysia campuses and should mean that customers wanting to use non-standard ports for things such as VPN should now work fine.
