Can anyone tell me how to get around filters on my computer so I can use Y! Messenger?
Here at my job they have filters on our computers so that we can't view anything entertaining or use messengers. The particular filter this company uses is WebSense. Do any of you know how I can get around that to install messenger? Tried the meebo thing....it blocks it as well. Thanks for the info though. And about the not being able to install anything on my work computer....you are wrong hun!! I can install and remove anything I want, just can't go to certain things on the internet. I figured there must be a way around this.

Try meebo, if you have internet access from your work this will work. it's not the messenger program but it will work. hope this helps

It wouldn't make any difference, anyway. You don't have the ability to install software on their computer to start with, so getting around a filter won't do you any good.

The connection it self is blocked. You can install any software you want if the ports that the software uses are block you will not be able to use it... More
