Today may be my last day on PBB

...from work, that is. They're enabling web content filtering Monday. The following types of sites will be filtered:
Gambling
Adult or sexually explicit
Criminal skills and Terrorism
Hate or Racism
Illicit drugs (cocaine, methamphetamine, etc)
Cult / Occult
Recreational chat
Violence
I don't know if PBB qualifies as a "cult" or "recreational chat", but we'll see

No, this is a religious forum. If they filter it out, they are depriving you of your religious freedom.

even though my firm is very lax on our computer/internet usage, here's what i do:

1) install AnalogX Proxy on home pc behind router with cable connection
-note: that proxy lacks an security. anyone can use it which is why i also use the steps below
2) bind proxy to local ip of home pc
3) setup VPN on home pc (win2k, winxp all can do this). open port 1723 on firewall
4) connect to home VPN from work computer
5) run all non-work www sites, aim, etc through proxy


you need a pretty good understanding of computers this way, but it makes for a secure way of doing things.

My employer has a boatload of filtering, and so far, PBB hasn't been touched. Some of the posted links ARE.

BTW, they're also filtering out ALL web proxies, so doing the anonymizer thing doesn't necessarily work.

<grin> I've got an sshd process running at home. No filtering on that........(like jht3's process.)

it appears to be defunct now... but what you did is put a small client on your desktop that would intercept specific IP packets (by port) and wrap them in http then send them through the firewall to an external server that would pull the wrapper off. External server would re-wrap the stuff for you so the returning data would make it through the firewall.


It was a pay service, but it was only like $2 per month. Apparently they weren't charging enough.

You're screwed, the PBB is really a cult, headed by Rev. Lance.

Chris, I wouldn't worry about it too much. They use blocking software at work and it doesn't block PBB and it misses some of the other stuff it's supposed to get. YMMV.
