Stupid, Stupid firewalls!!! Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad
When I am on work, I am behind a firewall. I realized today, that the firewall stops every image that have "hot" in the filename. Including "hot" icons from the board. Sad

I think it's your sysadmin or BOFH* (if you've got bad luck) who has been kind(<- note: irony) enought to filter urls/uris, maybe this is a bad idea, but you culd ask you sysadmin or network responsible to exclude this site from the "hot-rule".


*) "Bastar Operator From Hell" - The kind of sysadmin that will delete your files when you ask for one more meg on the corp. network and say you've got plenty of free space now...

Unfortunately, the admins are somewhere in Germany (I am working in German factory in Bulgaria - Liebherr if you know it.) and I even don't know how to contact them. Here in Bugaria we have some IT department, but they only said: "I don't know, this proxy/firewall is in Germany..." But this is not the worst thing. They forbided whole .ru domain by unknown reason. This is the worst. Evil or Very Mad
Anyway, all this is simply tedious, not very harmful. Smile

regards.

Well......here at my work.....almost every page is under the god damn "WebSense"......so i can't access my hotmail or my yahoo......and the worst thing, it's that i need a special username and password in order to get connected to the internet. Twisted Evil Lucky enough, i got two usernames and passwords, so when the first doen't work i got an alternative Twisted Evil

Mad But still the "WebSense" blocks my web life. Mad

I only know a way to pass it trough....but it sux.....and only let you see certain pages.....coz this crap, block every page of the domain......

Very Happy AT LEAST, AND HAPPY ENOUGH, I CAN LOG IN TO THE FORUM!!! Very Happy
