    Lancaster don't care. There's no rule about watching porn. Unless you're torrenting it... or anything else.

    Maybe they were just pretty elite :awesome: But yeah, they had this programme - called Impero, I think? Something like that - that meant they could remotely access any computer in the school, and run the programmes on it like they were on their own machine. It was pretty disconcerting.
    My school used that. You were just procrastinating away, when OH GOD- I'm not moving the mouse any more.

    Stalkers. :lolwut:

    It's not like I'd want to watch anything illegal It's just, you know, the horrible idea of walking into a lecture, some guy being sat in there fixing a computer while the rest of the lecture went on, and then him knowing what you'd been looking at the night before or whatever
    My school had that sort of system. The teachers would put a message on screen and if you didn't respond they would take control...

    Remote accessing is pretty cool though. We have that set up at home/across the family. Good when I need to find something on my home PC and am away at uni.

    Regarding porn, I can't imagine it would be a problem. There probably is a record kept though incase issues are raised/illegal activity though.

    Your laptop, your life. You might get in trouble for watching porn in public spaces if someone reports you (which I doubt they will for a single email) and you definitely will if you decide to whack one out during your watching, but if you're in a personal space you're good to go.
    Know this from experience, do you? :p:

    Haha you naughty boys! .. it is possible via a VPN: Virtual Private Network, such as Steganos. (Means 'watertight' in Greek). What it effectively does cloak your IP addy from outside viewers, only to be seen at the website you so choose. While on a VPN you could then use a Proxy.

    Not quite. Porn is fine, but whoever provides the internet access does have the right to limit what you can do - most uni networks ban torrenting (at least nominally), and I expect even the ISP could decide to control access if they really wanted to.

    I'm at lancaster, (i commute) and i was using my own laptop. I clicked on an email that looked very normal. but it was full of porn! i was in the library!!

    I'm so worried that ill be repremanded.... for something that WASNT MY FAULT
    Probably not - unless those public networks are strictly monitored. However if i was you i would be more worried about opening dodgy emails.

    The network will have logs of your activity, but they won't be able to see what you've been doing visually, nor interfere with the computer itself. To do so they would need to install extra software onto your laptop, which you can always object to since it's your property.

    My school had a system like that. They also had a ridiculous safe search, so I couldn't get on to the uni of sussex website, or search for organism, in case I was misspelling orgasm.

    I doubt any uni has that though. There's far more people with laptops than at school (far more people anyway) so it would be impossible to monitor everyone at once like you can in an IT class of 30 people.

    There's nothing wrong with watching porn, silly OP.

    If you made your own porn in the library.... that would be interesting.
