Ogre blocked at work
« on: December 06, 2010, 01:21:01 PM »
I'm at work waiting on a magistrate. I just tried to go to Mad Ogre and our network filter stopped me. the reason was that the site was listed as "offensive and in bad taste." It was working fine yesterday

    What is the brand of the filter in question?

    I clicked on it again to see what filter popped up and it went through. I dunno whats going on. The guys at IT are all cool and offensive in their own right so I don't know who would have classed it that way.

    It's pretty easy to proxy around most filters if needed;) Working behind hospital firewalls at my last job created a pain in the butt. I worked for a company using the hospital network to access the net, I didn't have their authority to bypass filters, but since I was in charge of the security of our network I had to go to places they didn't approve of. Either way I would say I hit blocked sites around 20 times a day mostly security stuff, I like FoxyProxy for Firefox allot because you can set some sites to pass through the proxy, that way your main surfing isn't slowed by the filters. But of course you need access to the proxy but there are quite a few good HTTP tunneling apps out there these days;)

    If they are using a third party filtering system they probably aren't the ones doing the blacklisting.

    You should get a smart phone.  Then you don't have to worry about the company filters.

    That depends greatly on where you are. Over in CENTCOM, it is blocked.

    I haven't tried to do anything other than work on work computers in the CONUS since I got my Droid. NOTHING is blocked on that.

    I wonder if this would be blocked over at DLI-FLC.  I know YouTube is.


    Ironically, I'm pretty sure I've been on the site while at the Naval Postgraduate School.  Then again, those computers had their own server and whatnot...

    Certain areas of the world (particularly the middle east) have all sorts of sites blocked - while I am there I can sometimes use sights like:
    http://www.foxjudge.com

    (remember you can access either with 'http' or 'https' at the beginning, so if one is blocked, try the other)

    I don't know if this can be a workaround or not for censors at a workplace CONUS - thought I share though.

    cheers

    I don't understand our filter at work. I can get YouTube, WTA, MadOgre, a few webcomics, and Facebook, but it'll block AOL news, news stories with embedded videos, various entertainment sites (game sites, music sites), and once-totally serious here- it blocked a site and the reason given was "Education."

    You apparently have also been deemed an enemy of the State of Alabama along with Gunbroker and AIM surplus. Salon and Slate are not blocked though. Fo figure.
