Dear colleagues, I've a problematic workplace where an employee regularly disables internet access using either the ISA 2004 Server or the Win 2003 Active directory domain. Much as I do not log onto the domain (i.e. I log on locally to my machine as an administrator), I get my network settings from the DHCP, DNS, Exchange & Active Directory Server which all reside on this same machine. On the domain, I've an account which is purely ordinary & it is the one I use to access mail on the LAN. Sometimes, this individual disables internet access such that only one machine is accessing this service. The ISA 2004 server is duo homed and acts as a gateway with one card interfacing with the LAN while the second card interfaces with the ISPs Network. Is there a way I can go round all this and connect directly to the internet? Thanx.

    Hello, I guess your machine is not physically attached to the WAN side, right? Anyway if you have privileges onto the domain you can create a GPO that disables the proxy server on your machine only. Bye

    Alessandro, thanks for your response. Unfortunately, I'm just an ordinary user on the domain which means I cannot even create a GPO.

    Several questions arise: 1. You state that there is a user who regularly disables Internet access. Who is this and why id he doing it? I've worked in places where every 30 days all ports on the firewall were closed, and opened again only after a specific authorized request. Is this a similar issue? 2. The person who is closing off access: are they the sys admin? Do they actually have the authority to do this, or is this an arbitrary action on their part? 3. How is this person disabling access? are they restricting access to a specific IP address? Are they restricting access to a single group of which only they are a member? If the access is being restricted by rules on the ISA server,you may be able to bypass using a "false proxy" - a site on the internet which is allowed to be accessed but will pass your traffic through to the world at large (no, I won't give you the addresses - they're easy enough to find, and "false proxy" is NOT an industry standard term). If the person who is restricting access is the sys admin, you may be out of luck here as a User lever client...
