Server Monitoring!

  1. Hello fellows!

    I am being heavily monitored by the company server (AS400), I keep my computer downloading torrents almost 24/7.... The chief at the computer department called me to ask me what where 5 archives of 700mb each my computer downloaded the past 5 days..... I was shocked to hear the question!

    Can they really know what I'm downloading?... Is there a way to bypass their monitoring system?..... I don't see any unusual software on my computer so I guess it has to be windows based(WinXP no service packs)...... Please Help!

    Thanx in advanced!

    Firstly, the internet is transparent. Anyone with access to the wire sees everything you do with the exception of encrypted content (your online banking is safe).

    Secondly, if it is your work computer then your work admins can do anything in there with their administrative rights. And there is nothing you can do about that either.

    You just have to accept that it is the company computer and the company internet connection and that you will have to use them on the company terms.
