    Likely. There might be something preconfigured, but it's usually better if you make and configure it yourself based on knowledge of the specific software at hand. Otherwise... it might know about one piece of software but not the other, accidentally trigger it, and get you in trouble.

    If the firewall is the ONLY security procedure, getting around it should be easy. As easy as using an Internet proxy server, or possibly remote access to your home computer. Kids use those to get around school firewalls and access Facebook all the time. But if there's more, you have to be careful.

    Just find a list of proxy servers, go to your internet options and change the proxy address. it might work. this will only work if you can actually access your internet options. some places have that blocked too.

    I used to do this in high school, i never got caught or anything. BUT it wouldn't work on internet explorer because they had the internet options blocked. I just downloaded firefox and did it there.

    Single application option block-outs? Without limiting ability to download alternate versions of software? LOL, those guys deserved to get hacked.

    When I worked for megabank, they cut off all our outside email, IM, and lots of websites. Being a rebellious INTP by nature, I learned how to make a few Windows registry changes to point to a proxy server that was being used by the company executives to maintain their access to ESPN and such. That lasted about 8 months before a network admin in the security division detected my traffic and I was exposed. I was called to the carpet for my infraction, despite my protestations that what was good for company execs was also good for the rank and file.

    My next tactic was to purchase an air card for my personal laptop and use it as I pleased at work. After a few weeks of that, I was forbidden by my manager from bringing in my personal laptop.

    My next tactic was to quit working there.

    ...

    Perhaps a registry hack is all that you need to point to an open proxy server. However, depending upon how draconian your company's security policies are ... and on how vigilant their network admins are ... you might be discovered. This link might help you get started on the hack. Of course, that assumes you have an open proxy server available.

    Best of luck and may your data continue to flow freely.

    Thanks mate, I'll look into it. This is kind of exciting. Like hunting, for geeks. Or those who share the interests of geeks without the skillz, anyway.

    If I never post again, you'll know I've been caught.

    I don't think they'll kill you or send you to jail.

    You'll probably just get fired, or possibly even a slap on the wrist... still an awful risk in this economy, but you seem to really want this.

    Yes, that indeed is the trick. I got it through checking the automatic configuration script in the LAN settings. In Internet Explorer: Options -> Connections Tab -> LAN Settings button. I opened the file in notepad and tried every proxy contained therein until I found one that worked. If you don't have an automatic configuration script, then the only way I know is to try social engineering. Not an easy task for an INTP like me.

    If you haven't solved your problem yet, use some Ping Fu.

    Specifically, for getting Ventrilo to function through workplace firewalls, use Ping Fu UDP.

    I think you can place it on your flash-drive, and run it from there, but I haven't tried. Of course don't let it make the shortcuts on the hard-drive when it installs, and don't use the default area.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.
