We can't read minds. Please give us some more information so we can help you. What operating system? What client version? Does any server work? Does it give an error message?

Now now blast, he's new, no need to be harsh.

If there is an error message, what is it. Make sure you have the most up to date version of bzflag as well.

Huh?

He is asking for information that will help us fix the problem, but I guess fixing the problem is a bit "harsh" for you?

[offtopic] I love your signature Blast. [/offtopic]

Please give us some more information so we can help you. Like Blast said, even though some of us may be off the top end, we can not read minds. We can help you, but you need to put a little effort into it for us to be able to help you.

Here is what we need:

Version of Bzflag
Operating System
Do you have firewalls set up?
How is your internet connection?
Do you get an error message such as: "Unable to Connect to server" or "Error connecting to server" ?

Hmm... if you are at a University they may have some firewalls. When you try to connect to a game server, what kind of error do you get? What does it say exactly if I may ask?
