Re: TBB on XP again


Well I'll be a monkey's uncle!  Turns out both non-admin accounts had their NIS accounts set to the more restrictive Teenager level.  TBB was stalled waiting to be granted access by the NIS firewall.  Adult level users are notified about each request and may grant or deny each one.  Users with more restrictive levels are not even notified.

Even with the correct account levels systems like mine are going to leave tracks in the firewall.  TBB leaves a set of three tracks(tor, firefox, and polipo) for each user account on which it is successfully run.

Furthermore, this demonstrates how easy it would be to block the use of portable browsers on any kind of public computer.
