    if you typed those sites blocked by your firewall, your proxy sends you back to your homepage.Speak to your sys admin guy to get it unblocked.

    Dr_Evil's right...with Windows NT, you're most likely getting kicked back to the school homepage by the ISA Proxy server.

    Assuming they are using ISA. They could just as easily be using MS Proxy or Novell's Bordermanager or some other firewall product that has some type of filtering like CyberCop. Has there been any thought that perhaps the host file was possibly altered? What sites were you trying to visit? (usually the site itself will be a hint as to what activity was going on) 2600.com? porn site? a site with "xxx" in it's url (Oracle uses this in their Knowledge base)

    Very true indeed Ms Mittens...I shouldn't have been so shortsighted on the answer.

    the hosts file dosnt affect ip addresses. try typing in a dotted ip addy like 216.239.37.99
