Im a moderate computer guy, plenty of project and team skills, learning skills and good attitude...
Im a hard worker, I get it done and guess what Im nice.
But I just dont have much clue when it comes to NETWORKING, setwork security and all the myths surrounding...
Dumb story. (But u should read..)
I got a new job, needs remote support, use OpenVPN, my company gets my IP.
Now here is where your phycho analysis skills help .... lol!
I regularly reset my router and change my IP, 2 -3 times a week. (I have had viruses and a few bad times with Dodgy Vista ISO's, and peps stealing my RS account.)
ok Im a bit paranoid! OK i admit it dont stone me!!!!
Anyway iv been working nights... trying to get a webserver up and done two nites, on the VPN.. I log out. All is ok...
- I think i reset my router to get a new IP..... the following nite... and surfed on Monster and NIjobs till 2am looking at better jobs... cos mine is know to be .... well its very hard... loads of overtime highly stressed etc..
The next day at 3pm in a meeting my boss (who does not care for procedure) made a comment about the team needing to pull in and stop staying up to 2am looking for new jobs!!!!
It was not so blatent, it was off the cuff and to the office pet, in a kinda.. 'im gonna say anyway!' approach.. In the start of the meeting...
The thing that shocked me is that he does this behaviour all the time is a cowardly way to say "i know what u are at, stop it!"
He is very very impulsive too. and is very in the know with all the office stuff.
The techie bit
Im not stupid...
I realise if this is real its not legal, but forget that. Is it possible for anyone, even the admin of another leased line(s) to monitor or check internet usage?
Ok log into the ISP controller, grep for the customerID and there its is.... monster.com--01.15--84.112.x.x-- whatever...
But how can they do this.. is it possble? Can he get my MAC from the VPN logs and keep finding me and monitoring me forever?
My company... are a security company... its all tunnels and vpns and logs and telephony.... There are many tallented people and many that are.... flexible about rules.
I am very worried that if I want to leave in 6 months they will be made very difficult. Saddly there is no trust and also these people are extreemly extreemly aggressive and harse...( thats life i know)
