Hi Rob,
I was just thinking it's very unlikely the university would block http 
connections from inside, but not ssh from outside. but I'll contact our ITS 
anyways.
BTW, I am new to this LDAP and Kerberos thing, and I just followed the steps 
outlined here 
https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/16/html/FreeIPA_Guide/Installing_the_IPA_Client_on_Linux.html
There may be some steps that are obvious to people know these things and they 
are not listed in the document, then I could have missed them.
Thanks,
George
