Hey,

If I were really bothered about it I'd probably setup a proxy at home and
use a VPN connection connect to it. Then surf and do whatever you don't want
them to see like that. At home: Linux server, Squid, and OpenVPN.

Subject: How to stop Admins from sniffing ?

Hey List


I work in a small organisation and the system and network administrators
here are constantly monitoring all data in the network. I have seen them
running Etherreal on their systems and from their talks i am sure that they
know who is doing what. I m using windows XP and i have a personal firewall
installed which pop's up every few minutes saying that there is a port scan
attack going on. And when i looked up that IP address it belongs to tbe
system being used by the administrator. I have tried talking to my bosses
about this but not happened ( maybe the admins convinced them that they are
not doing anything like that or its happening by bosses permisson).  i know
since they are in same network as me its easy for them to sniff all traffic
and everything.


What i want to know from you ppl is that is there is anyway way to stop this
? is it possible for me to encrypt all traffic going out from my system ? 

I have never used a Anti-Sniffer but can they help ? any way out ?


Thanks in advance

Jeff
