Problems Connecting Via Strict University Network

So I can run the game fine on my computer and have had no problems playing on any internet connection until I came to a new school this semester with a very strict firewall (strict Christian school).  Stardock support has been no help so please offer any suggestions you can think of.  I called the network administrators and they said that while there are restrictions on the firewall(s), they have opened up the ports for World Of Warcraft and Xbox Live (as well as others I'm sure).  So I guess my question is CAN I PLAY ONLINE SOMEHOW USING THIS INFORMATION AND THE PORTS FROM THESE GAMES?  Every time I try to connect to or Host a custom game (which is all I'm interested in at the moment) I get the "cannot connect to the NAT facilitator message!" 

I have tried to Host and connect to a game unchecking the auto-port feature and using all of the numbered ports from WOW and Xbox Live and that hasnt worked yet.  I wonder if it would work by adding some step I havent thought of yet?  Is the Demigod port selection a TCP or UDP port?  Any and all suggestions are VERY WELCOME and VERY APPRECIATED!!

Windows Vista Home Premium SP2, WOW ports: TCP 1119, 3724. UDP 3724 (voice chat). Xbox Live ports: TCP 80, 3074, 53. UDP 88, 3074, 53

Demigod uses UDP ports 6112-6132 by default. They can be reconfigured, but you'd need a continuous range of ports so those few that are already open won't likely cut it.
