Yea, being an IT in radio however I had numerous ways to get around the shipboard servers. For example, because I was the operating officer for the satellite phone network, I became an avid user of dial-up AOL and plugging directly into the PBX.we did that in high school... unfortunately now in the DoD they have pretty much blocked all proxy's
I see, I think I actually use one to access some of our SP sites. I have to "log in" to a few different things before I can get into the sites!You have to actively use a proxy. Normally you don't stumble on one.
There are several ways to ban the use of proxies. Lance can go into the server for the site and block the entire range for one.
Another way, which is how the military does it, is through a Packet Shaper. It's an actual unit that blocks certain packets of information from ever even seeing the network. You can log in to your Packet Shaper and through some pretty powerful software block known proxy websites. You can even go as far as eliminating the letter "a" from all incoming or outgoing emails. It's just one reason why military networks (NIPR, SIPR, and TIPR) are so damn secure.
Stands for Private Branch Exchange....as the picture with all the old switch board operators shows, the new ones are all computer generated and gives you the features of your home and cell phones such as voice mail, direct inward dialing (such as hotels where you call other rooms by dialing 7), music-on-hold, remote maintenance and testing, etc.add me to that list, and what's a "PBX", parent bull crossing?
