    ok this is probably in the wrong place but here we go
    at my job we have a closed network.
    the computers are all connected to the internet and when you try to go to a personal site it gives you a warning

    ok so i got a proxy to bypass that bs and am able to make my mac connect to the network
    i put this proxy in every field in system prefs<network<proxies
    and it works..
    12.1.16.17:80

    but my mail doesnt work
    poker stars doesnt work
    etc etc
    ive downloaded some programs but none seem to support tunneling through port 80
    anyone know what i can do

    thanks

    Proxy information has to go into every app, you can not just put it in your network settings and expect it to work for all apps.

    Also a note from someone who has done the network admin thing, we can't see what you are doing when you are behind a proxy, however proxy packets do get flagged in most situations and if a certain IP is a repeat offender for too long we tend to look into what they are doing. If its a personal machine read up on what your internal policy on attaching personal devices to the network is just to cover your ass. Back when I was doing network admin it was for a financial company and the policy was if anyone attaches a personal device to the network without authorization it was instant termination.

    Cheers
