Using a proxy does not give you this level of security. It just means that you are not accessing it directly. The content still passes through the gateway. If you want to make it unreadble then you will need to use some sort of encryption.

yes good point, if they analyze the traffic and put the session together then it would be pretty much pointless. If i have a box online somewhere can i use it as a proxy? I know of squid but never really played with it.

thanks again

you could try the jap proxy, which connects to web sites through encrypted "mixes."

>edit, though on 2nd thought, it's still passing thru the gateway, right?

It will be passing throught the gateway but it may only pass encrypted information through (I don't know the product). If you have a box on the net somewhere else you could use that as a proxy and encrypt all information over an ssh tunnel back into the network. Be VERY careful if you do this. Make sure that this isn't considered as non acceptable use by your network administrators. You could find yourself out of a job if you ain't careful.
