Hi Dave-The-Rave,

That's a pretty vague request without supplying the specifics of the network.

Cheers!

Well, if you have Windows XP Pro on you home computer and remote desktop software on your laptop, you can use remote desktop to access your home computer and from there you can use your home internet to access sites outside of your 'allowed' sites.  That's about the best solution you have assuming they don't have that port blocked.  If they do have the remote desktop port blocked, you can set up a web server on your computer to allow for an Active X remote desktop so you can access remote desktop through Port 80 (Internet)

Windows XP Pro comes with software called Remote Desktop (Start ->Programs->Accessories->Communications->Remote Desktop Connection) that acts like PC Anywhere.  If you don't have XP Pro at home, then you should use PC Anywhere.  As far as whether or not they can track you, its impossible for me to say without knowing more about the software but chances are they won't ... I'm assuming that you are in Jr or Sr High?  I'm guessing they won't be tracking Port access as the logs are usually so freakin long that it becomes impossible to keep track unless they are looking for you specifically.

Another option would be to use a web anonymizer.  They are usually a proxy server which is available (often for free), which bypasses normal security, filtering and tracking.  The noble purpose of these tools is for those in countries where the government is blocking access to free speech and information, but I guess it would work for a school in the good old US of A, too:
