Broadband is a connection to internet like modem, cable, ISDN, dsl. Proxy is used to cache files, prohibit illegal material over Internet and Lan and prevent acces from outside world to my firm.

I dont know if AA support connection via proxy but when i try any server my computer could not pass proxy.

Sorry, AA:O Holds NO PROXY SUPPORT. Maybe in a later patch. I'll look for a third party app that can maybe reroute the traffic for you, i'll be in touch. This post marks my triumphant return to aafiles. HOOAH!

Yeah, I work at Gateway part-time. I say part-time because I'm now on Active Duty Army orders to go to Kosovo. But, I digress.

Gateway uses WebSense which is a type of proxy/IP address blocker. We got around it by using a cable Internet connection, a router and a few hundred feet of CAT-5 cabling. But, at Gateway, the T1 connection routed back to the main connection in Sioux City, Iowa. So there was no way to get on the other side of the proxy without actually being in Sioux City.

If your company has the proxy server at your location, you may be in luck. It may require some Alcatraz escape-type tactics, but it can be done. Otherwise, you're screwed. Sorry.

This is possible for many non-web applications provided your http proxy also supports https pass through. You'll need more than a basic understanding of network engineering and some ability with compilers/installing complex software.

Most proxies pass through connections to secure web sites. This is all encrypted traffic on port 443. What you need to do is build an SSL based VPN endpoint somwhere outside your restricted company network. You use some free VPN tools avalable at sourceforge.com for both your PC at the office, and a server component for the other side of the VPN.

I've used this tool in some proxy only environments http://sourceforge.net/projects/openvpn

This one not as mature, but has potential... http://sourceforge.net/projects/proxychains/

Once you can establish the VPN going out, the remote end can be configured to do port and address translation to get your aao game ports forwared out to the to the public Internet.

Another option might be a tool called SSH. Many support organizations require that port 22 be open to permit secure remote management/troubleshooting of customer equipment. You would still need to have a server off-net to forward your traffic, but it is much simpler to build if you are comfortable with UNIX and port forwarding concepts.

MAC OSX users already have most of the tools to play over SSH. This tool will help configure all the port forwarding for you... http://sourceforge.net/projects/tunnelmanager

After going through all this work, you may be successfull getting on a server, but lag and packet loss may relegate you to being a 203 spammer on Bridge Crossing ;)

Also keep in mind this should be enough to get the attention of your company's network security team. Make sure you read the HR handbook first, see section: "grounds for termination..."
