View Full Version : Getting around Barracuda Filters....

11-17-2008, 06:31
Does anyone know how to circumvent a barracuda filter? I have some downtime at work and would like to read the forum....In the past this wasn't an issue, but since they installed these new barracuda filters, I cannot get on...The other message board works well...I think that since this board has 'toys' in its name, I am limited...

Any suggestions??

We have the same filters where I work but it allows this forum.

The really annoying thing is that this filter interferes with my Job...I work in an emergency department and occasionally I may need to google something to help care for a patient...If the item I am looking for includes any sensitive body part...BANNED!! If I want to check slang drug names to see just exactly what my overdosing patient took...Banned!!!

You need to log onto the barracuda server and adjust the settings. It's adjustable but your IT guys might need to do it for you if it's a pro setup. That's how you can get around it.
