Even if you were able to get away out, you would still be in breach of your User Policy and if caught most likely to loose internet use and possibly suspention if your user policy is anything like that my kid has at highschool.

I know this doesnt help you but it might be easier just to get some other internet connecion to your room.


Just a guy having a bit of fun. Nothing more, nothing less, I do not need I WIN to feel validated.

Ok, I know this is an old thread, but I just stumbled on this post today. I am a registered user of MUSHClient, and I've been using Cliser for quite some time now.
In case anyone out there still needs help with cliser here are the steps:
1. you go to:
http://www.mosha.net/01-telnet-gateway/register.html

2. there you register, to register, you provide a valid email address, and you fill in the address and the port of the server to wich you want to be able to connect. you can put up to 3 different servers.it is VERY important that you register from the machine from wich you will later use cliser to conect. the cliser registration process automatically obtains the address of yoru ISP and onlly allows connection FROM that ISP to the servers you fill in.

3. the Cliser ID is sent to you to the email addy you provided.

4. You download cliser

5. you edit the cliser ini file and in the last line put your ID, the file is pretty much self explanatory, you need not chane anythign else in the file.

6. you open a command promt or DOS window and execute cliser with a line that looks like this:
cliser proxy proxyport remoteserver remoteport nnnn

where proxy is your porxy server, you can get this fromthe internet explorer internets options in the connections tab.
proxyport is obviously the port, you can get this from the same place. usually 8080.

remoteserver is the addres you want to connect to. or the name.

remoteport is the port of the MUD/MUSH etc.

nnnn is a 4 digits number I'd suggest between 2000 and 3000

once that is done you open mushclient and connect to localhost on port nnnn where nnnn is the number you provided.

that should do it.

hope it's usefull to someone.

BTW, I must add that I've used Cliser from behind extremely secured firewalls and tight connection policys.
Cliser apparently encripts everything and so far, it's proveed undetectable to the places I've used it from.

Connection Freedom to the World!!!

Do you know if it takes them a while to give you an ID? I've registered yesterday but still no ID was emailed to me. I've even checked my junk mail folder.

For instance, I know that we are behind a sort of proxy. We have private ips for the network and we all go outside with one IP (probably the one you'd see here). I know the IP of the proxy but I dont know the port. I've checked my internet settings but there's nothing there.

Any ideas?

Well. I was able to solve it.

I was a bit impatient I guess.

I downloaded cliser / got my ID / know how it works.

The problem is my work doesn't give admin accounts so I can't access the internet options to show me my proxy server in IE. Additionallyk, sites such as my-proxy.com are almost all blocked, and the ones which are not return my proxy address as "elite proxy" or "highly anonymous proxy"

Is there any way for me to find out what my proxy is...or change it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like your work doesn't want you to play games at work.

I doubt if you can do much, their system administrators probably know all the proxy server addresses. They may also log what goes through them. If they see thousands of entries in the log which look like "go north, kill monster", you may soon find yourself looking for a different job.

well, I think this ridiculous security is mostly for the other people I work with because I'm just summer interning here - they only give me about 2-3 hours of work a day max and then expect me to "occupy myself." I guess I'll go back to reading or playing spider solitaire.

thanks anyway though!
