I cannot run CAH on my workstation at the office because the firewall blocks the CAH domain because it is classified as a "gaming" site. I cannot even pull up this webpage in a browser for the same reason. We use iPrism (hardware filter by St. Bernard) to block pretty much any website that might be remotely interesting or useful. Modifying the permissions on our end is not an option for me.

This is the only BOINC project that is blocked in this way. If I want to upload/download WUs, I have to physically disconnect the ethernet cable and connect to our wireless network, which is outside the domain/DMZ.

Since the device relies on a URL classification database maintained at St. Bernard, could someone from CAH contact St. Bernard directly to get the URL reclassified under something like "science/academic"?

Your companies administrator would be the one to "unblock" this website on your companies proxy server, but something tells me that they are unaware that you run this application on work computers...

It would be your company you need to talk to, not St. Bernard.
