Larry - I think you sound pretty legit and you certainly have a pretty common problem.

The IT pros in this community have been a little hostile in this thread, but what they are trying to do (albeit in an overly snarky way) is ultimately uphold the golden rule. They wouldn't want other IT pros telling people how to bypass IT security constraints for their systems, so they don't share that information either.

IT pros have been conditioned against doing this under any circumstances because of social engineering attacks in which people provide perfectly normal-sounding excuses for bypassing standard rules and protocols.

So while I wish most of the TechRepublic members in this thread were a little nicer about it, I hope you'll appreciate that they are genuinely trying to do the right thing here.
