Detecting firewall's ip

Beating my head in on this one.  The school has changed the network's configuration and isp.  I am getting about twice the bandwidth now, which is nice, but I can no longer get to the control panel of my website.  I cannot access any ftp sites (never could before), and I can no longer access my https control panel(uses port 8443).  I *can* access other secure sites though.  I know that I'm not behind the proxy server that I was before.  BUT, there is *something* in the way.  There is no proxy server listed in the registry (that I could find).

The truly unfortunate side-effect of this is that our network is no longer run in-house; so I no longer have the luxury of say asking the admin what this address is.

I *do* have a supervisor login..  Where can I find this information??

I've found a couple tunnelling clients, but I need to know the ip of the firewall to get them to actually work..

Thanks,

Shawn

The gateway address is the PDC..  I've read a little bit about those traceroute programs; it is very cool stuff.  My supervisor login is to the windows network.  I don't think the firewall hardware is even in this building; it's probably in Illinois somewhere now.  It is a class c ip address...  I'll have to try monday.

I'd love to call helpdesk, but he's gone on vacation for the next two weeks..  I'm sure he'll help me when he comes back; but I'm on a time table; and this change sets me back at least a day, probably longer.

What I *know* is that I used to set the proxy in my browser; now I don't, but there's still something in my way, and it's pissing me off!!!

Thanks for the input; keep it coming!!

Well, I eventually got around it; I simply rolled my own cgi upload form.  Well, maybe not so simply!  Oh well, a mult-part mime parser may come in handy..

Anyway, thanks.
