I dont think such a program exist nor do i think such a program if one existed would be legal.

Actualy it is not because if

Actualy it is not because if you can break the monitoring at schools a person could use that technology maliciously at a place of business. It is a major security risk and is in some places by passing monitoring is a punishable act. If you bypass monitoring at a government workplace you can see jail time for 15 years and a 500K dollar fine.

there are 2 problems with this

1) there are many types of monitoring software.
2) there is a good reason that there is monitoring software on your school computers.

lokk at it from the practical point

of view.
what do you want look at what the teacher should not know?
If the teacher has software in the network like some VNC or so, then it would mean that you know what software exactly it is, what communication way it uses, e.g. ports , protocols etc.
In such case, one could block the ports in question, or certain protocols with some firewall or just a single purpose build firewall like software.
But in such case, teacher will notice the blockade immediately, since the then his software will indicate the lost connection to your workstation. Thus coming to personally in next minute what is going on there...

Similar you would reach when booting your workstation from some live CD and work this way. You have disappeared and this is already valid information for the teacher.

Or is he just monitoring what you surf around in the web? This might something different, the use of anon proxies can solve the problem partially, but then the teacher will also notice that encrypted requests go out of your computer and thus recognizing immediately that you are using such stuff.

So it is like with any other 'supperwising' systems, no matter if this is the family member or secret service itself: the knowledge that something is not visible or not present has similar value that the opposite.

Besides tha fact, that countermeasures against such software need deep access to the opereating system components, which you probably do not have on such school network computer anyway.

I turn the PC on and remove

I turn the PC on and remove the Ethernet cable. That way I can do as I please with the programs I want and they don't know what I'm doing. You won't have internet (But some phones double as modems Wink

I do this if I need to run a program or access another account on the computer.

Use an hardware solution,

Use an hardware solution, like the WTR54GS (Wireless travel router + 1 wired adapter)

If you have access to a power outlet (there is usually a power bar under your desk), unplug the network cable from the workstation, plug it to the WAN port, and use another network cable (a small one that you carry with your router) to bridge the connection to the workstation, securing all the ingoing connections to that workstation while allowing a seamless outgoing access to the network.

That would be the less intrusive way to do it, while keeping the system's integrity.

Don't forget to take it back though Wink

monitoring software

the easiest way is to use a proxy ( use opera) but if your feeling technical you can inject code into the process and disable it that way although it will probably crash (alerting the technicians)

( when i was at college i hacked the network and disabled the *very insecure* monitoring software and they said they had screen shots of us browsing blocked websites *which was youtube * which of course they hadn't as the software which monitors people was dissabled on the pc (not the whole network) anyway the assistant reported us and i almost got kicked out of college. (but i carried on doing it even after warned and never got found out again)

if you want to chat about it more please email me

*all information i have provided is for research purposes what you choose to do with the information is up to you but i will not be held accountable for your actions should ANY problems arise through the use of this information* ( sorry i had to type that for legal purposes)
