When I was in the military running a base network control center we put in the first firewall for the base... One of my contractors came to my office the third day the FW was in and said, "Uhhh... hey LT, if I see something funny do you want to know about it?" My response was obvious... He was watching the logs scroll and saw the word "lolita" go by.

Long story short the mustang 1LT that was downloading child pornography on a government computer and prostituting his wife who he was also abusing in other ways went to Leavenworth for a nice long stay.

Felt real good to help send that dirtbag away.

To put it as simply as possible,... if you don't want your employer to know what you're doing on his computer,... get your own,... even a cheap netbook.

Fun job until we had to have a job terminating discussion.

Keep you biz computer business and use your personal one as you wish.

Question: If I run Linux on my own netbook, how do I use my own Internet connection? Buy my own wifi USB device for $50/month? But can I use the corp wifi router to get to the Net to see my GlockTalk basically?
Hi Duncan. I'm former LEO in computer crimes and now work for a major, multinational energy company as head of computer forensics. I can certainly relate to your experiences.

Gombu, I suspect your web browsing is not being monitored, although it could be, but let me echo what others have said and just use your own personal device for personal stuff. I use an iPad when I travel for browsing, e-mail, and entertainment.

Chivvalry, love your signature. +1!

As a senior network engineer I know first hand the junk that companies install to monitor their systems. And I agree it's company property.

However, I use to dual boot my company Thinkpad and use Linux for MY uses.
It it's not on fire,
It's a software problem.
