I'm running Ubuntu Gnome 16.10 with the latest version of Mist installed. Whenever I run Mist at home, syncing works without a hitch. But when I run it at school, Mist opens but shows 0 peers. When I run Geth Console it shows

Welcome to the Geth JavaScript console!

Then when I run > eth.syncing it returns false. I ran netstat -atun to check what stuff is blocked and not blocked, and it returned

Is there any solution to get Mist to sync without having to use a VPN?
