ur scool administrater can control exactly which web sites u can go on and filter specific files such as .exe so u can't download games etc. u can get round some websites just my puttin www.. instead of www. our network administater woz an absolute dick +filtered the words game, free, chat etc.msn/trillian won't work if u bring it in on disk cus it takes seconds 4 him 2 delete it +ban u from the server.
i no it's a bugger, someone else may no how 2 hack in past the security wall. the outher way is when school's use filters they add on a password to them in case they have 2 use that web site in the futre. when u get 2 the filtered screen if u enter the corect key securence/passwod the filter 4 that website is removed, but findin the corect key secuence/password is hard. ocasionally if it's a new computer the defalt settins haven't been changed so the password is sumin simple e.g r.m (by the way that's the defalt settin 4 all r.m's computers bios setup)
Trust me it is not worth it, I have tried many times but the proxyserver (your school is likely to have one) doesnt allow IM traffic, you cant do anything but surf. I managed to find a way to get Norton LiveUpdate to work by changing the Internet Explorer settings to "Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections", its one of the tick boxes in the Advanced Section.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
