My thoughs are that the proxy server has been configured to not allow you to do these
things, as it should be. Most companies do not want traffic moving between the LAN
and the Internet without some security.
I would suggest that you spend a lot more time learning about the products and
why they are where they are. If you get this wrong and open up your companies
LAN to a security breach they are not going to like you very much.
There is no doubt we need government in our lives. There is also no doubt
that we need salt in our diet. Watch out for too much of either one.
