   The easiest way to bypass such a restriction is to select Configure 
when launching TorBrowser, select No when asked if you need to use a 
proxy, then select Yes when asked if the firewall only allows access to 
certain ports.  Here are some screenshots to help:

   This is usually a result of them restricting ports to 80 & 443 -- not 
actually trying to block Tor.  Amusingly, this was also the case when I 
was doing a demo at the Tails launch party.  Local network blocked all 
ports but 443 and 80.  Awkward.
