Can't access gmail with firewall enableled

I am having trouble accessing Gmail from my college’s public wi-fi. The problem occurs with both my personal account and my student e-mail account which is hosted by gmail. It just sits at a white page doing nothing.

Disabling the firewall allows me to access the website, but any setting (including training) will not let me access the website.

I was having the same problem with PCTools Firewall Plus.

The problem does not happen at all sites that require login or https (I can access facebook and

Computer is running Windows Vista Business, the Windows Firewall is currently enabled, but my problem happens with it on or off - it doesn’t matter.

Can you post a screenshot of your firewall logs? They can be found under Firewall → Common Tasks → View Firewall Events.

What policy are you using for your web browser?

I’ll post a screen shot the next time I am on campus which will either be Wednesday night or Thursday morning (depending on if class is canceled). There is nothing in the log history right now. I don’t know if this is because the firewall is disabled, or because it didn’t record anything…

Scratch that, I just got an alert from svchost.exe wanting to accept something from another computer on my ISP’s network (I blocked it as it was from another user), this was recorded in the log. My home ISP is a free dial-up service for Michigan residents,

I don’t think it relates to anything, but the details of it are:
Application / Action / Protocol / Source IP / Source Port / Destination IP / Destination Port
C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe / Blocked / TCP / / 6987 / / 135

I don’t remember setting any configuration for my web browser (Firefox version 3.6), I don’t recall the firewall asking me, either. The same thing happens With IE 8.

As I said, it only happens on my college’s network, here at home on dial-up I have no problems.

Let me know if you need any other info.
