okay... here's what you do and you'll be fine.

first of all, you don't want to just run the eve client all day on a work computer. the data traffic you'll generate will certainly be easily noticed by any network admin in the company. however, you can get away with loading eve and logging in quickly and updating your training skill for example, then log off real fast. if you're in and out in a minute or so you will have no problem at all. your web browser or outlook / email client will generate more traffic than eve in this case.

you might also want to keep your time on the eve forum down.

I don't the forums are as big a deal. I hit up eve-o along with multiple other sights all day at work (like right now). Forums in my opinion require far less attention than being in the game itself.

Depends on how motivated your network admin is and how large your organisation. Eve will just show up as an ip address and the packets will probably fall into some non-descript udp category.

If your organisation is large, your run-of-the-mill network admin will ignore anything that generates little traffic. Eve is pretty light on bandwidth so, again, depending on what else goes on at your workplace, you may or may not get noticed.

It also depends on the monitoring tools used ... If your network admin is using a Packeteer, you're pretty much ****ed in the ass : )

Thanks for the replies peeps, it's good to know it's just an ip address. I've made a note of some of the technical ways suggested to get around it, but to be honest, it mostly made my brain hurt. The company I work for is a telecoms one, and my internet connection goes through the same server they use to pre-stage loadsa hardware. Fortunately the connection is huge so i'm lucky enough to not have to worry about getting noticed for bandwidth. Also random ports/ip addresses are all good, cos the engineers are always running test networks, or remotely messing around with other peoples!

It seems all they did was put in a server proxy for internet explorer. I couldn't even go to this wep-page. Then I remebered i had mozilla installed :) Seems my I.T guy is a fake geek cos he didnt even know what firefox was, and gave me a big blank look when i asked if java was being restricted at all. He is fat and has no love-life, so 2 outta 3 aint bad :)

Now, back to damaging my work ethic...

If your that desperate to play eve at work

Laptop, wireless broadband card - play eve without ever using your companies intranet and thus not show up on any network report?

how come we lack the ability to change skills via the website?


They want you to play the game, not farm characters using your browser.
Let's be honest other than the convenience factor there's no difference between someone having to log onto the game for 3 minutes just to switch a skill and someone doing it on the website. CCP could disable skill-switching for any account that isn't currently subscribed so there literally wouldn't be any issue at all.

By the way, Eve uses barely any bandwidth.

Worst part of logging in at work to change a skill (on free wireless) is forgetting to mute the sound on my laptop. When that EVE b*tch belts out "CONNECTING... [space-like woosh!]", people notice. Wink

I currently work in a lab on a university and there are often periods of downtime where i would just watch videos on youtube to pass the time. The university has a large network infrastructure with thousands of different wireless networks setup by many different labs. I am the person in charge of one wireless network in my lab. Would it be better to mask my internet activity by using this wireless network? I am currently using a RJ45 connected directly to the wall.
