You'll have to go through a proxy to get to go here then... Be warned tho, most proxy's are looked VERY downward upon by network admins...

Make sure you're careful if you use one to go here.

Ive seen guys mentiong setting up a VPN tunnel to your home computer. You would access your home computer from work, after that you can access any site you normally could from home. I have no idea how to do this, but it is supposed to be pretty easy

It is easy.....to get fired!

Generally speaking, most companies/institutions that have content filtering in place also have regs that prohibit circumventing the filtering. It is one thing to bypass the filter, but to VPN outside of the network is another.

BAD IDEA!

Got the VPN backwards. You would need a router able to config. VPN's - unless there is software that does it for you, which those programs are usually hit/miss and not reliable.
You can use Logmein to remote connect to your home PC and browse via your home PC, therefore no history other than connecting to pcanywhere (logmein)

I use Radmin - Remote Administrator. It's much faster than PCAnywhere, can transfer files, restart or shutdown your home PC, or full remote control.

The only thing that would show up in an admins logs are an outbound connection to your home IP address. But you could still get caught if they use screen capture spyware.

Whether or not you want to use something like that depends on what kind of trouble you'd get into.

Take your network admin out for a beer, or better yet, find one that's interested in shooting and take them out sometime. Maybe you could get one to grant you an exception.

This thread has certainly gone as far off HK specific discussion as it can! Let's establish a few points and then lock this thing down (so it doesn't go on forever...). And I'm saying this as a shooting enthusiast, an HKPRO.com mod, a tobacco merchant, a firearms manufacturer... and the chief IT geek for several networks!

  • HKPRO.com appreciates the enthusiasm that all of our Premium members, registered users, and guests demonstrate by reading this site, whenever you read it.
  • Just like employers have the right to restrict the use of the telephone to business only stuff (no LD to Fiji for you!), they can also regulate the use of their Interwebtubes connection. They paid for it, they can say how it can be used, especially on their time.
  • There are ways around just about any content blocking/filtering schemes (just ask your teenage kids). Choosing to use any of them to defeat your employer's policies would likely be considered, at the very least, something worthy of reprimand. At the opposite end, you might be looking at deliberate insubordination and theft... just so you could talk with us about HK stuff! Consider this carefully...
  • IT folks are not stupid. They especially love to find employees who think that they are smarter than IT. It becomes a regal challenge. You will get caught. The sneakier you are, the harder the slam.
  • You may want to consider what has already been suggested... Go talk to IT-god. Explain that you would like access to HKPRO.com so that you can gab away about your passion (maybe just during lunch?). Explain that you'd also be willing to take said person out shooting regularly, too. It might work.
