I've got to bring my laptop to school tommorow to work on a project. It involves connecting to the internet and all that jazz. Thing is, I don't want to connect to the school's network if they can read my browser history. They're very strict on inappropriate material and such (and not just graphic material, game websites and stuff), and they can control connected computers remotely from the IT office.

Also, I have a load of porn (diaper related and normal) saved to my computer. Any suggestions on how I can save myself from the intrusions of the IT people?

Connecting to their network won't allow them to read your (home) browsing history or see files on your computer. The only thing they will be able to see is content that you access whiel at school.

This, also if you're worried about people seeing your porn, just encrypt and password protect the folder (7zip does a good job at making it really fast and easy to do: 7-Zip )

Delete your browsing history and don't open the specific folder? I'm not quite sure XD

You could even use a proxy if your school's internet doesn't block proxy websites.

Since when does your school have any business snooping around your private files and history? If they don't want you to connect to the sites you mentioned (porn/games/illegal stuff) while you're using the school network...that's understandable. What you're doing at home is your own problem, and your school has no right accessing that data.

That said, if you want to use your computer at school, open up a new user account on Windows (assuming you're using it), move any files you need for your project to that account and then simply use that account on the school network, as that account is completely clean (no browsing history, no bad files). Accessing your other account's data would require hacking by the school officials - I hadly think that's legal!

Peachy is right they have no right to access your files unless you are being suspected of terrorist involvement and I hardly think you are one o I think you are safe. But in the future you should do what I do which is save all files such as the ones you are talking about on a portable hard drive and I also keep a proxy server saved on a flash drive that my high school couldn't block.

Unless they directly access your computer they can't see anything but the sites you access while on the network.

Also remote control will require programs to be installed on your computer. So don't worry.

Thanks for all the help, guys. Nothing eventful happened at school, although I was a bit antsy while working on my project (multi-media sort of thing that includes pictures) around everyone in class. I was afraid some embarassing picture would randomly pop up while accesing my pictures folder. It's happened before while my dad was in the room. Thankfully, said picture wasn't diaper-related.

You have to be very careful when using networks in public institutions like schools. A lot of times the papers you sign before you connect your computer to the network will give the school rights and access to anything on that computer... just like the school has the rights to all the property in your car in the parking lot. Schools have a lot of unethical rights and crazy powers over things said done and used on their property... all in the name of keeping kids safe.

Your school cannot see your history or anything on your PC unless you have it set that you have network shares. If not, they can't come in. The only thing they can see is your host name, IP address (local, within the school, usually 10.x.x.x) and MAC address -- maybe.

You're safe. And if you want to be extra careful, be sure to be on a different domain/workgroup than your school. You'd be fine ;)

If you don't want to use the school's network (which there is no reason not to), you have to either have a 3G modem or hope that the people next door have a *really* good unsecure wireless router.

Also, if your porn is not a virus or a special "video player", it will not connect to the internet.

A couple other things - if possible, use encryption (forms, https:// domains, etc), it's impossible for some mullet-haired badger sitting behind a computer next to a huge rack thing in an old fire exit to know what you're up to, or even, that the traffic exists. Keep in mind that at a good time, it won't be unlikely that more than 100 people are using the internet at the same time (thank god for the stuff we get at TAFE), so it's incredibly hard to zone you out. Plus, the IT guy is human - he's not gonna sit there logging everything everybody does. If that was the case, you need a new IT admin. I know we do.

Unpatched IE6 and a software restriction policy that doesn't allow you to run *anything* is just insane. I feel like sending him an email... in bold red letters...

Anyway, another thing, this is how to get around pretty much any commercial NetNanny filter. Look up the blocked website on Google, then click "Cached". It will only really work for the front page though, you have to google the other pages methinks.
