Port 4070 blocked : Why Spotify won't connect to port 80?

Hey,

 

My office only allows Port 80 and 443 connection.

 

As far as I know, Spotify is suposed to try theise ports once it has detected that the port 4070 is closed.

 

For some reason, my client just stay offline, whereas there is no domain name restriction.

 

 

Is the Port 80 failover an urban legend? 

 

 

Regards,
