recently in my company the sys admin has setup a squid proxy which is now
restricting me to access yahoo messnger & other services like ftp, telnet etc.
it is only allowing http on 8080.
before my network didnt have a proxy & all requests were going to the router so
i could directly ping or telnet any server as if i was directly connected to
but now as i am behind a proxy i cannot use any service like telnet or ftp ..
& if i telnet to my local proxy & verify my login it logs me in but as no shell
is provided i get disconnected .. basically all this is done so that we dont
waste the bandwidth or misuse it... huh ..
now what i want to do is i want to run yahoo messenger/icq, telnet, ftp .. i
have used Kiwibox for chat but i want to connect through my usual yahoo
messger/icq ..so how do i go about it ...?
my office proxy is --> Squid/2.3.STABLE4 ..
I am also unable to check my other POP3's except my official one ..
so is there any way .. i could some how tweak or do something to enjoy these
services .. ;-)
Thanx in advance
