hi, there
   Skype connection is encrypted, so it can keep your chat message and call.
   SMTPs, IMAPs and POP3s are encrypted email service, while https is
encrypted web service. you can you them to prevent system
administrators from monitoring you. But if you do that, you must take
care for internet attack by yourself, like phishing, spam, exploit in
email and etc.
   Anyone has good idea of all-in-one or better solution?

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
