"Continued attempts to access prohibited sites may result in a review of your internet usage and expose you to appropriate disciplinary action"
So imagine my surprise when adding a simple s to a web address let me bypass nearly ALL blocked sites! Changing HTTP to HTTPS was the solution I had been searching for. Why does this work I wondered...well apparently the firewall admins only filter traffic on port 80 not 443. So if you are a network admin and you really want to lock down your system...be sure to plug the HTTPS hole.
Until next time! o7
