Luckily, I'm the IT guy....... :smile:

Told them do not block and gun, hunting, survival, or gun supply sites....

They asked why......

I told them I'd probably be fired if they did......

The owner is a retired Army Major. He was a gunship pilot in Nam, and was shot down twice.

Every boss there hunts, collects guns, and has carry permits.

You'll see one of the son's or the other walking through with AK, and AR's all the time.

I've had my 2 FAL's, My Ak, AR15, and my 45 Beretta Storm down there, and don't know how many pistols have been down there.

CEO just brought his new RIA AR15 varmint rifle down, and the owner had is Double Barrel down today getting ready for a dove hunt.....

God, I love where I work....... :wave:

Yep is nice to work somewhere that does not HATE guns.

I just showed a friend the article in the Rifleman, where Winchester is making a box of shells to commemorate the how we won more medals than anybody at the last Olympics. Then I asked him if he ever heard anything in the Media about it.

Lucky guy for sure.. They have been talking about doing that at my work place too,. Hope they don't.. Not only for slow times like this, but for the research that I need to do on things for work related,. . I have the feeling if they do, business will drop,... :-(

You're the IT guy and you're asking someone else not to block certain keyword sites? As the IT guy, you should have the admin passwords to admin that blocking software, whether on the router or otherwise. Then after it's installed, just create permissions as you feel is appropriate...

For those who aren't admins but can justify being able to remotely connect to an outside computer, get the ports for the remote access software opened in the company's router. Then connect to your home computer and surf from your own PC or Mac. If you have to connect from home to work, then the ports are already opened for you to go the other way too.

I do, but the company (Qwest) that I purchased the Firewall through wants all our phone and data service in all 11 branches, so they gave me a good price, and they are configuring it, and installing it free. SSOO why not let them?

It is a Cisco ASA 5510 with the Content Security SSM-10 Module. It will allow me to block any site even down to allowing one person to go there and block another. Also if I want it, I can track each place each person goes, time there amount of downloads, bandwidth used.......

But I'm more interested in stopping what comes in rather than them goofing off, on their dead time. We have 11 branches in 5 states that all come through the Memphis branch for internet access, so it will help out. It has antivirus, spam filtering, spybot, and key logger blocking made into it.

Maybe I am paranoid, but why would you give them that control over your co's computers?

Once they program what I want blocked, and they leave, they have no control over it. They are just setting up what I want.

Sounds like an awesome place to work.

We had the same IT issue recently. We signed up with a firewall blocking service and luckily, I am the entire IT department, so I UNchecked the "weapons" category... It is good to be "the" IT guy.

I just set up a proxy on my personal website.
As long as I can hit my site, I can look at whatever I want.
Nope one of the times I did block was proxy's.

One of the other propeller heads in my shop is our s.m.e. on ASA's.

I am skeptical of a "do it all whiz bang" box. I think a firewall is a firewall, a VPN concentrator is a VPN concentrator and leave it at that.

When you roll multiple functions into one box something else suffers along the way. But that is Cisco System's latest marketing tactic; all in one solutions. Integrated service routers are a good example of that.

They p**s me off alot, all in one solutions for your network perimeter but Nexus line (10gb) stuff only supports layer 2 to the edge but I digress...

It's 2am on labor day and some guy on a gun website got me all tuned up about work.

Thanks a lot pal.

Seriously, I think you will be pleased with what the ASA will provide for your organization.

Be Safe,

NosaM

I took over the IT where I work about 2 months ago, and the new firewall was the 1st thing I started pushing for. The old one was a 9 year old Cisco that was last updated 5 years ago.

I went with the SSM mod because I'm trying to get away from 200 copies of anti virus running on work stations. Right now I'm running AGV 8.5 and I hate it. It slows down everything. Trend Mirco is who is running the Mod.

I'll let you know how it works out.

Sorry about getting you thinking about work.......:redface:
