Any way around Windows Firewall  

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,


I use XP at my work but they have Windows Firewall enabled and it blocks programs that I find useful at work. They have it blocked so you cant turn off Windows firewall and cant set exceptions for it. Is there a back way to turn it off temporarily or set exceptions for it?

I presume you are not the administrator? You could try running a proxy/contacting your admin and telling him

We do have admins, but they are very tight on security and wont allow even the most innocent of programs... Kind of a pain.

not really, most of those programs have holes in them.
