Default Been Banned ~ Need Your Help

As most of you know, I am able to do updates and post from work.

Starting today, we have a new internet policy and I can no longer unchecked to use the proxy server, on my internet options.

So i cant access any gaming sites on my work pc. Ever again.

Do any of you experts have ideas on bypassing work filters? A buddy told me about going to a proxy server website. But I have never done this before.

Any ideas?

This really sucks.

The first question i'd ask is will your job be at risk if you get caught doing that?

If not then you can try a proxy server, but it may or may not work depending on how they are blocking sites. Its basically just setting your browser's internet settings to use the ip address of the proxy server and then surfing as nornal. This varies depending on what browser you are using. Also keep in mind that all of your traffic is going thru this proxy server so you dont want to be sending any personal info.

just google "how to use proxy server" to get started and post any questions you have if you're still confused.

I have no idea on how to get around it. And if I did, I wouldn't do it. After a couple of weeks of withdrawl, you will be fine. I've been using my Iphone when necessary. Not much happening around here at the moment as far as leagues so I don't check in here nearly as often as I used to.

proxies work, but i've seen people get fired for it. Being IT at my job we detected it and shut the person down once, twice, and 3rd time he was fired by the company. Not worth it. Use a phone to access everything that your job doesn't let you or a netbook with internet access (wifi, wireless service internet, or tethering).

This is all great advice. If you can't access it on your current phone, you'll be better off in getting a better phone than getting fired. Good luck!
