I want to run SETI from my office. but unfortunately the firewall in office blocks download and upload of workunits. Is there a way i can download workunits from home and run it in office?

There is a way, but its not easy.

First and foremost, you need to make sure you have permission from your office to run SETI on the computer. Running SETI on unauthorized machines is against SETI policy, and can result in you getting fired from your job as well as a lawsuit for stealing (resources) from your company!

I would suggest that if you get permission, you ask your IT department to help you configure the firewall to allow SETI through.

From other responses to this question in the past, this appears to be quite a difficult and cumbersome process. Is there no way for you to place an exception in your firewall rules within your router? This would be the easiest option, In my opinion.
