Is P2P networking used in some social features in Foldit?

I am having trouble with certain features of Foldit, specifically chat, the exploration map, and possibly solution sharing. The Global and Puzzle Chat windows both say "Joining Chat" in the input box but do not change from that state while the Exploration Map contains only the starting solution and my current solution. Similarly, the only shared solutions that the Manage Solutions window displays are those that I myself have shared.
The network that I use may block Peer To Peer networking. Could this be the reason for this behavior? I have not yet had a chance to try Foldit on a different network, on this computer or any other, so I do not know if the network is actually related or not.
