Hi All Wink
I work in a warehouse, along with four other friends. We have several computers at our work place. They all run Windows 2000 server. We Angry use them for shipping & receiving, etc. Until recently, we also used them to surf internet, mostly youtube, in our spare time, which we often have plenty. However, last month we have got a new, hostile foreman--a real control freak-- who fired one of our friends, and then have blocked our access to the internet. We no longer can go on youtube or any other sites, except for the company's website. The foreman imposed these restrictions despite the fact occasionally surfing the internet never stood on our way doing our job. We would sincerely appreciate if someone out there can help us to get back on the internet again.

We all have separate accounts to log in. First, the foreman blocked one of us only. Then, several days later, he blocked us all. Therefore, whenever we try to access to the internet, except for the company's website, we are greeted with an "access denied..... contact your administrator's...." .

I tried to open and reconfigure the ports he had blocked, but i failed, as i don't have the Administrator's password......

Somebody said if i use linux live CD it may work. Huh? But i'm not sure this indeed will work. Because i don't think such a CD would be able to reopen the blocked ports automatically--especially if those ports are blocked from company's headquarters, which is far away from the local computers that we use in the warehouse.

Anyway, to make a long story short, i imagine there must be a way (a utility, an app, etc) to bypass the unjust restrictions imposed on us....

If you have an answer, would truly appreciate if you can tell me in details-- step by steps-- as to how
can i get back on the internet again?

Any help will be sincerely appreciated.

As an administrator for a school and business I can tell you that there is no way to bypass this as it is set on the connection as a web filter. This is input to reduce bandwidth, keep people at work and keep unwanted virus / spyware off the computer.

I do believe he is doing the correct thing and you should just suck it up and keep doing your job.

There are 10 types of people in this world. Those who know Binary and those who have friends.
