This is why you would be fired if you worked for someone.

A company network is for COMPANY BUSINESS, NOT PERSONAL BUSINESS.

Using company resources for non company things is likely against company
policy. What part of that are you having trouble with? I'd love to see
you actually own a company and have your staff doing what you suggest
instead of what you are paying them for. How quickly would you change
your tune?

Again, it's not your call. In our customers networks we even block
access to News and most other sites by default from Managers.

The company makes the rules, you either follow them or get a different
company to work for.

In 90% of cases where people have access to non-company business sites,
those people will waste company time and other resources on personal
crap that costs the company money.

You are not in the clean then YOU ADVISE PEOPLE THAT BREAKING COMPANY
POLICY IS PERMITTED, WHEN YOU ADVISE PEOPLE THAT THEY CAN NOT BE
DETECTED OR MONITORED......

Your beliefs and statements are unethical, you tell people to violate
company policy all the time in these groups.

Just because something is legal does not mean it is ethical. You keep
failing to address the point that adding to the costs of a business that
is against the companies rules, or advising something which will add to
the costs, is NOT ethical. Legality is a separate issue.

Actually, many school systems have policy, signed by parents and kids,
that permit the school to permanently disable their computer accounts
for such violations.

You are unethical.

Yes, there is a clear indicator that she was setup with an Encrypted
link to a residential site - as long as the policy does not permit such
links she could have her internet connection suspended.

If she was found to have surfed, by means of inspecting her computer for
some reason, she could also have her connection suspended.

It doesn't matter if the can see INSIDE the tunnel, it's only that a
tunnel is setup between two sites - and that tunnel is easy to see. Any
admin could easily spot that and then question it.

To break Company/School policy for any reason is unethical - it doesn't
matter what the reason, and a personal reason makes it even more
unethical, it's unethical to break policy when one exists.

You are unethical.

But it was not HER network connection but of the university which
probably provided her with a free internet connection in her dorm room
with certain restrictions and rules. It is unethical. She broke rules
of a service which was provided free to her.

It is unethical to help someone break company rules which are
implemented to protect the company networks and network resources.

He has a lot of rights but that does not give him the right to break
rules or laws.

> his chidren were up to, and so giving him acccess to
> do that was NOT unethical.

So if he saw that his children were up to something and he jumped into
his car to speed back home, breaking speed limits, breaking street
laws, you would consider that, too, his parental right to check on his
children and thus ethical? If you helped him to get quickly through
some radar checks your doing would be ethical to help him to exercise
his parental right?

Or if he knew that from time to time his children would stay at some
friend's place and he wanted to excersice his parental rights there,
too, and he would thus secretly install some bugs and hidden cameras
there because the friend's parents would never agree to that would you
consider this ethical as well because it is just a parental right to
check on his children? And if you help him to do that you think you
are ethical?

If you agree to work somewhere or agree to use some network resources
at a dorm room you agree to comply with some rules. You usually sign
those rules. Otherwise you would not get the job or you would not get
network access granted. Breaking those rules is unethical. You agreed
to comply with them and now you break them. You are always free to
work somewhere else at a place with different rules or use some other
way to access the internet at your dorm.

Now, if you help someone breaking those rules you are unethical.

So, you keep showing that YOU and people you know and help have a long
unethical history of violating company policy for personal benefit.

You and they are unethical.

You don't seem to understand, the students often sign or agree to having
their communications monitored as part of the agreement for network
service.

No, the parents do not have ANY right to help her violate network
policy, not at all.

If the TOS permits remote connections for the purpose of surfing the
web, to bypass restrictions, then yes, it would be permitted - but there
is not a single school policy that states "You may use any means
possible to subvert our network security or policy".

And? The person who used your proxy broke corporate policies. Enough
to get fired. You helped. You provided the service. Unethical.

You can do many things without breaking any laws. It does not mean
that they are considered ethical.

Chilly, you sure post a lot of crap on this newsgroup.

And, yet, the person that used your proxy could get fired for such a
violation of company policy - and if you instructed the person on how to
violate the policy you could be liable for his loss and the companies
loss if their network is compromised by that violation.

The computer, while personal property, the user is subject to school
rules while it's on their (school) network - the user agreed to that
when they were given access (in 99% of all cases I know of) and that
means they agreed to NOT violate policy.

Personal computer, privately owned, it doesn't matter - when you are on
someone else's network you play by their rules or suffer any penalty the
network owner wants.

You continue to show that you're unethical.

Well, Chilly8, one might question the ethics of a proxy provider snooping
on their users. I'm sure that if your anonymous wedding planner knew that
the allegedly anonymous proxy server you're hosting was being so closely
monitored they might not feel so special. Of course, I'm merely assuming
that your proxy is advertised as such but, as the rest of this thread
seems to imply your lack of cluefulness in general in this discussion,
don't you find it a bit ironic that you're the one raising the indignant
moralist flag in this situation?

As for the matter of company bandwidth usage, employers are well within
their rights to limit staff use of company resources whether it be using
the postage meter for personal mail, long distance calls to grandma, or
printing your pictures of your ass on the color printer. The same goes for
bandwidth consumption. So if your network admin wishes to restrict
peer-to-peer traffic, flash or ActiveX controls, streaming audio/video, or
any manner of site filtering/blocking, that's their right to do so as they
are paying for the bandwidth and for the IT staff that maintains the
network and cleans the cruft out of your bot net virus infected PC that
wouldn't need scrubbing if you hadn't been looking at pictures of wedding
porn in the first place.

See, you've exposed him when we were just going to let him hang himself
in his own statements....

I can't blame some parents for doing that. Long, LONG ago,
I did chat with one girl in one chat room, who was a student
at Bob Jones University, who was using an AOL dial-up
account through her cell-phone, despite the campus rules,
to get on. She paid for her AOL account a year ahead
of time, and logged on through her cell phone and AOL
account. Cell phones, themselves, are not prohibited at
BJU, just using them to access the Internet, instead of
using the on-campus network. Since modern cell phone
signals are scrambled, I don't see HOW they could
find out you were accessing the Internet via your cell
phone, since they could not eavesdrop on the signal.
Encrypted digital cell phone service has been around
since at LEAST the late 1990s. So short, of using
illegal cell phone jammers, it would be difficult, if
not IMPOSSIBLE, for Bob Jones U, to stop someone
from accessing the Internet from their cell phones, be it
through dial-up, or through faster 3G networks. She got
away with using her cell phone, and AOL accont, becuase
the signal cannot be eavesdropped upon.


I found out that BJU has some of the TIGHEST rules
of any college ever. You are not allowed to watch TV in
the dorms. When you go home to your parents, you are not
allowed to watch any movie above a G rating, or any TV
show above a TV-G rating.

Since I implemented my public VPN server, I have
seen a lot of traffic coming from Bob Jones University,
and now I can see why, with all the DRACONIAN
rules they have. Since some of the P2P TV services
usually have the major U.S. television networks being
rebroadcast by SOMEONE, I am seeing hits into
my VPN server coming from Bob Jones U, so TVU
and TVANTS, where people are rebroadcasting the
TV networks. Since the connection to MY server
is encrypted, that is no POSSIBLE way the admins at
Bob Jones U can find out WHAT is going on. I did
see a lot of traffic from BJU going to the TVU feed of
CBS affiliate KPIX in San Francisco, during the
NCAA basketball tournament. Seems that a lot of
BJU students wanted to tune into the games, without
the University administration knowing about it. All
that University administration would know is that people
were downloading heavily encrypted data packets at the
rate of 420K for each person connected. As the saying
goes, "The book is open, but the pages are in an unreadable
language".
