    I just connected to my uni's VPN, and everything except for Skype and AIM works perfectly. Skype and AIM won't even let me log in. I've tried changing the proxy settings so that they match my web page settings and changing the ports to match, but it still won't work. Help? Is there any way I can get Skype and AIM to work with VPN?

    You may have better luck on a forum dedicated to one of those services.

    I suspect that they are being blocked deliberately, check to see if other users are experiencing the same issues.

    They are likely blocking VOIP. Aim may also be on their block list. It happens all the time as evidenced by the number of web sites that mention skype blocking.
