    Anyone figured out a way to bypass the websense filters at work? The damn thing is annoying.

    Not gonna happen. We have them too. In fact, every time you hit a blocked website, it keeps a log. The net nazis can then snivel at you and waive it in your face......

    at my last job we had a filter, and it brought you to a page that listed what you'd done and such. so as a prank i went to the page on purpose by trying to check personal e-mail, and took a screen shot, i then changed the infraction from webbased e-mail, to underage porm..... soooo funny. i almost got my ass kicked, no one would believe it was a joke... here click it, and please pull the same prank

    so funny, here try really funny!!!

    Nice to know tha there is a log, although I suspect that everything is logged. The "child porn" joke is damn funny, but I work for an insurance company and no one here has a sense of humor.

    I built and configured a WebSense server at my last job. What sucked was that I was blocked from the same sites as everyone else on the network. :mad: I justed hooked up a modem to my pc and used my dial up account to check my email and get to the restricted pages. :D

    Apparently it not only restricts access to sites, but keeps some pice (think the pig pen) from being viewed. Some are fine, sometimes I get a blank. PITA
