    You most probably are behind an institutional firewall, like in a college or an office. Short of asking the network administrator to allow the service, there is no way to use them. If your computer's firewall was blocking, you would have been asked whether you wanted to unblock the port.

    BTW I have the same problem and I got an earful from my network administrator when I told her that I needed to use smashits.com (realplayer)
