First question: probably not. You'll have to talk to the sysadmin. You may be
able to get them to unblock the port you need. Maybe you could try using a
different port; Quake et. al will let you use any port, but I don't know about
StartCraft, particularly if you need to use battle.net.
Second question: not a chance. It's amazing enough to get Windows programs to
work under Windows. What wine attempts is to intercept Windows calls and
translate them into X/Unix calls. Sounds simple, but it's pretty complicated,
and wine is dodgy at best. Programs that do run, work at about a tenth normal
speed, and fall over in a stiff breeze. That said, hats off to the development
team, even that's a huge achievement!
