Re: OT: network (intranet?) privacy help Q...



This assumes that ssh isn't blocked outbound. It's not something I'd bother with, but would be easy to do, at least with the default port.

He said he has a mac, so there's not much concern of the admin "hacking in", nor of him ushing NT-domain-specific stuff onto it. But, unless the traffic through _all_ of his gear is encrypted, it can be intercepted and read. And, if it _is_ all encrypted, that might get noticed.

I'll readily admit I am NOT into IT, and have a dim understanding of a lot of what has been said. However - - I volunteer in the public school system here, and the teacher I work with depends on me as his computer "guru"(LOL). The school system is ALL MAC, and each teacher has their own Mac laptop, to be used in school, @ home, whatever. They can be "wired" in school, or "wireless" through the school "airport". The whole school district is under master control, and they thoroughly pi**ed me off last year when they blocked "Google Images", which I had been using for images for PPS presentations for the kids. This was done because students were gaining access to "prurient" content.
They also have blocked access to USENET, EBAY, etc. There are many places I have tried to go for research that were NOT inappropriate, but ended up "Access Denied". We have even tried to get around this by going through the local ISP where both the teacher & I have our home email accounts, but it still monitors & blocks if we try to go that route.
Maybe encryption or "PGP" whatever that is, would work, but it seems like the general opinion is, and mine as well, their house, their rules, if you don't like it, find another job or do the things you don't want looked @ when you're home.
Just my $.02

Yeah, do it at home.
You're using their resources; they have the right to monitor your usage.
