At those companies where Internet is not allowed, you can maybe set up a modem with a mobile phone, and I guess there are lots of mobile service providers that provide flat rate internet services...All you will need is a Bluetooth/IR Port and a mobile phone that can serve as a modem.

Hi Vijaishanker !

At those companies where Internet is not allowed, you can maybe set up a modem with a mobile phone, and I guess there are lots of mobile service providers that provide flat rate internet services...All you will need is a Bluetooth/IR Port and a mobile phone that can serve as a modem.

Technically yes, but then consider being fired immediately : internet access is disabled for network security reasons, anyone setting a private "pirate" connection to internet unknown by network administrator is able to affect the whole company with catastrophic data losses if he ever brings in a virus, which is very likely. So any kind of "private" connection is a huge potentially disastrous risk for the whole company.

In this case a single comptuter isolated from company's LAN network should be set with a local printer and some facility to copy files (floppy, USB storekey, ...) so as to allow safe retrieval of information from internet.

Best regards.

some companies do not give internet access for reasons like security. so you would need to ask your supervisor if you can do so

some companies disable not just internet, but also diskette drives, and usb ports

I am sorry about this post.I guess i posted it on a wrong thread.There was a thread about "employers not being allowed to access Internet at their company" and this must belong there.Either way it is against company rules to access outside resources without knowing them. I was just suggesting alternatives to accessing Internet from companies which impose strict rules like these
