Well, I work in an organization. My desktop computer is joined to the domain so that I can access all the resoucres (Internet / Prining, computers, etc..).
I have a personal laptop which is not joined to the domain. Previousley, I connect my laptop to the network and change the proxy setting then I will be asked for username and password on the network. By entering the login information, I would be able to use the Internet, Exchange Email, etc.
Few days ago, WebSense system was implemented to manage Internet privilages. Now, when I access any other computer, sharing or any Intranet application, I just provide my username and password to logon. But when requesting Internet, It won't ask for username and Websense blocked page shown telling me that I don't have access to Internet. Ofcourse, , my laptop is not partof the domain.
I have read some tips about this kind of problem. Then I changed the computer name as the domain name so my username looks like this: COMPUTERNAME\USERNAME which is exactly as my network account. Then I set the password exactly as the same account on the network. By this, I was able to access any web application, printers or computers with my network account.
The problem that, I still couldn't pass WebSense gate and didn't ask even for the username. I tried quickly to use MultinetworkManager or Net Profile Switch tools, but still couldn't pass to Internet.
The offical and only true solution is toto join the domain which I don't want to since it is my personal laptop.
Well, this is the bad senario. For the good senario is applied to some consultants visit the organization with thier own laptops. They have network accounts but the laptops are not joined to the domain since they have thier own network setting for thier company.
Both cases are same situation. My problem here is how to convince the metwork that I am part o the domain without joining it.
Any idea what to do?
