An AppleScript to change security settings?
Authored by: stephanos on Jul 20, '05 04:26:49AM

Thanks for the heads-up Chris, but unfortunately all non-HTTP traffic is blocked at the network layer so none of this stuff helps. We only get HTTP(S) to the outside world and that goes through a proxy (so no setting up a Jabber server on port 80 as the proxy will choke on the XMLPP). As a matter of fact this is a new policy and I'm quite peeved about it - I can't even get my Gmail through POP3 - but they claim it's for security and with most people running relatively unpatched Windows boxen I have to accede. Our jabber server is blocked from accessing or being accessed by the wider world as well, so we can only IM each other.

Bummer.
