    This is kinda strange but here goes.

    We have T1 lines at work but our network administrator has blocked all music type and internet radio sites. Everything is Windows based servers and Exchange etc at work.

    I have a G5 at home.

    Is there any way to connect to my G5 from work and play internet radio, say XM Radio online, and have the music stream to my PC at work?

    S Tunnel?

    The trick here is that we do not have the permission to install any kind of software on our work PC's.

    If you can play QuickTime files at work then it is definitely possible. You could setup a web page (or web site) that streams sound or music using QuickTime Streaming Server.

    Edit: If you are not supposed to listen to music at work then it is a good idea you don't do it.

    I will second this. If your network admin bothers to read logs, and hopefully they do, what you are doing will be seen, and you will be caught, and this could end up being bad for you. How about sticking with the low-tech CD player and headphones? It really beats a pink slip.

    Do people still use CD players? ;)

    I think an iPod will solve that particular problem very efficiently indeed.
