by encrypted http access , to by pass proxy


hi ,

my company web access is behind proxy(http://abc.proxy). network admin can get to check who is top10 user and web they access.

i owned a centos server. i have a thought that create an encrypted tunnel within proxy so the admin cant detect my http address.

this is how it going to works

client with OpenVPN -> OpenVPN server(centos with company proxy)-> proxy -> internet

my connectivity in my client are using OpenVPN server as bridge. Hence, no record for client is recorded in my Network admin monitoring list.

Please let me know you comment on my thought.
OpenVPN server's activity can be traced by network monitoring tools, just assume that our ultimate goal is to hide client activity.

It's not a good idea to bypass the company proxy.
It's there for a reason.

Kind regards

Circumventing security restrictions is not a valid LQ topic. Closed.
