    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..

    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

    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.

    i know that they all use different ports, i was told to try shimo, macproxy etc etc...
    we all have been using this proxy for a long time and my boss is the one who gave it out... i just want my mail app to work, lol
    thanks for the heads up though
