    If your on a corporate LAN, their are so many ways they can track what your doing that you better be careful anyways.

    Some systems use proxies which can usually use maintain a log of who was looking at what and when..

    the gateway can also be set up to track activity and last but not least the router they use can also track it. You can pretty much be assured that there is a log of activity somewhere. If they actually look at it is another story...

    Beyond looking under IE's connection info for proxy settings, there is no real good way to tell if your being monitored. Their are network tracers that will tell what machines your packets travel through but not if they are being logged or not.

    I agree, it's extremely difficult, if even possible, to know if your activity is being logged if you're not in control of the network devices (switches, routers, firewalls, etc). Even then, someone determined can track you invisibly.

    Mike Bloomberg once said something like "Never do anything on a computer that you wouldn't want anyone to see you doing on the nightly news."
