Security admins restrict outbound protocols like AIM for a reason. It's insecure. Worms are now being transmitted via AIM. So are the latest versions of Phishing attacks. Yes you can get around just about any restriction. It might be more constructive to open a dialog about the restrictions. MacOS X gives organizations the opportunity to bring Instant Messaging in house. You can run an IM server on Server, use Jabber and encrypt everything. IM can be used constructively as a collaboration tool. Discussions of constructive uses seems better than adolescent rants against "clueless" management.
