Ask them if you can use your own laptop during lunch hour and connect it via your own USB Internet Key. That means all the equipment is yours and it is not connected to the company network.

They may not allow you to do this, but it seems lunch hours may be permitted. Ask.

You can also use your own smart phone on 3G or 4G. Again, lunch hours - not on company time.

I suggest you be straight with your Boss and adhere to rules your company sets out.

It is normal in many companies throughout the world to block many services, but they do it for security reasons and it would be a company violation to try to work around those security policies.  If not, what is the point of imposing the restrictions in the first place.

I just want to ask, I want to get pop3 email and connect to FTP server. Maybe use 3G is my solution.

John HurstBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
What I do at clients (where I am in some control) is to provide a reserved IP address for my consulting computer. Then in the firewall, POP3 mail and FTP services (ports) are allowed. This keeps security for the company, but allows me to do my job.

This is a reasonable approach to the problem and, again, has company knowledge and concurrence.

thinkpads_user is a potential solution but beyond small companies there are generally so many hoops to get through for firewall rules changing, and that traffic often goes via proxy servers, or is only allowed out from hosts in a DMZ VLAN that it isn't going to happen for many.

If it is "allowed", for Pop3, why not use a Gmail account or similar to pickup your Pop3 messages and view it on googlemail.  You could also use a remote machine left on at home and use VNC configured on, say, SSL port 443 and port 80 for the Java viewer then connect to that, or with "gotomypc", "logmein" type services etc.

Instead of ftp, can you use dropbox or google / ms equivalents - i.e. get to it from a webpage.

Virtual linux / windows boxes are available for £20+ here which if you can determine a way of remote controlling that works through your access then you can do everything you want to through that from anywhere.

But whatever you do, get someone suitable to OK it in writing.... If you introduce a virus, or cause some data leak through your "back door", was it worth it?

Personally I use a 3G card and laptop / tablet and have Lotus Traveller on my Android mobile when working on client sites together with secure remote access back into my own servers, and web access into our Domino databases when needed.
