    So here's my situation: I work at a calling center where internet access is blocked off. I have my own cubicle and get my own computer But they have blue coat Web filter And i lack Administrative So i can install only very limited programs.

    I've tried starling the android sdk But to no avail. I've thought about tethering too but i'm not sure if that will work Since i don't know if a computer.can maintain more than 1 internet connection..

    Basically i can't have my phone out while at work, so i need to figure out a way to use my phone to browse the internet on my computer screen without being obvious

    Any ideas?

    Solution: wait until you get home to browse. The IT dept will be able to see if your computer is disconnected and not on the network. Also, if you're not connected to their network, you probably won't be able to do your job since you won't have access to the things you're supposed to throughout the day.

    How is that a solution? Quit being an idiot >.>
    If I remember correctly, there was a way to be simultaneously connected to two different networks at once. Was just hoping for someone to maybe shed some light on that.

    Another possibility was maybe connecting via USB and then using some sort of onscreen android software... but installing the android sdk has proven dificult.

    Was looking for some creative solutions, that's all.

    Is SSH available? Can you run something like PuTTY from your thumb drive? Not Droid related, but the best thing to do is tunnel with SSH and firefox.
