It could if they are spending all day checking the firewall logs, if they have them enabled that is. I know I have better things to do then that.
Umm No, they don't. The Air Force has people that do nothing else all day, but review firewall and IDS logs

Well it's off topic, but I guy in my command just got fired this morning for using google chat in the office. I think my time here on HBT at work might be coming to an end....

They are cracking down on all of the websites here in my building. Haha, one day a few months ago, they actully blocked all search engines, google, yahoo, jeeves. That's what you get for working for the government though....

Firewall does not block sites. Proxy servers do- And by design the AF is not supposed to monitor those unless there is an investigation or a security breech. Problem is Civillians and Commanders like to make it their own network and play NAZI.

Ive seen it where they block all search, all images and any attachment except txt. Great thinking guys.

As I posted before, you should always think twice before trying any of the proxy servers, gotmypc, RDC connections, ect as these actions are typically prohibited by many employers work policies.

Attempting to circumvent our network security at my place of employment will get you terminated, plenty of time to surf

if you have a desktop and an always on connection like dsl / cable you can configure your home pc to act as a private proxy server and if any one asks you can always say you had files on your home pc that you needed to access.
