    Hi all, maybe some of you can help me?

    I work in remote areas for a company which provides free internet to employees - with a catch.

    I can connect my laptop to their network via ethernet cable (comes up with a login window when I type an url).... but the only program permitted to access the internet, is Internet Explorer. This is also the case on the desktop PC's the company provides in the kiosk room.
    Nothing else will connect. Browser/program IDs must be blocked?

    Is there any kind of VPN I can use on my laptop to bypass these crazy access restrictions? ..i.e. to at least allow me to use ~FireFox & possibly IM apps, and provide me with some privacy..?

    Thanks in advance :)

    they monitior traffic and know what to expect. stands to reason they will not be pleased to see it circumvented. use what is provided for free and a lot of free emal provide ssl access.
