IT at my office sucks

They've blocked our office from viewing officepools.com and now there are a few dozen of us here totally pissed. I've tried to talk to them about the benefits of this site ( office moral, comraderie etc.) but they won't budge.

my question is...is there a way to still see the web site from work by bypassing their filters or something along that line. My knowledge on this stuff is next to nil so any help would be appriciated.

thanks

set up a secure vnc or rdp connection to your home computer. browse the blocked sites from there. your IT dept is probably just toeing the line laid down by management. we have the same sorts of unpopular policies in our office.

We're hiring. :)

Very flexible work hours. Great benefits and bonus structure. Awesome bosses. Open internet surfing. Daily Simpson's trivia. Trashy receptionist.

It may be possible for them to successfully fire you if you circumvent their browsing policy. At least I've heard of cases where this has happened.

But then it kind of sounds like you would be better off working elsewhere anyway.

I work in I.T, we assign static IP's to certain computers. We have IP's that have browsing access and have IP's that can only view specific sites like supplier / customer sites, etc... do you have a proxy server setup on your machine if so try to take that off!...

hmmm....(if you know me you are probably smirking right now...)

there is a program called Circumventor. Google it. Never tried it, but basically (to my minimal research and understanding) you need a computer that is offsite, on, connected, and you bounce off that.
