Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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.
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.
