I'm trying to access lichess.org from the university network. I can access the site but when I try to join/launch a game, I keep getting reconnecting message. I emailed the admin and he told me they are using websocket.
I try to search the web about this and all I got is that websocket should be able to pass through firewalls.
My questions are:
1. What is blocking websocket then?
2. Can I bypass the gateway (in a legitimate way)?
