    Again, all of these aim at bypassing your IT dep't blocking certain sites. If they start blocking whatever IP range your ISP gave you you're SOL.

    Do you download this to the work PC then to home or just one? I'm confused.

    No. The machine you are trying to reach needs to be on.

    Change your power settings to never go to sleep mode/standby mode when plugged in.

    Clutch headed to Trailing edge for a spring cleaning of the laptop me thinks. I get lots of Virtual memory low, out of system resources messages so leaving it open all the time is not viable yet. :D

    I meant your IT guys. Get to know them. Take up smoking if you have to (if they smoke -- ours does) -- it would be worth it in your case Smile
