And why should your son be allowed to gamble during work or on his work computer? If the company paid for the computer they get to decide whether he can access certain web sites.

They are probably using something like Barracuda network security to block access to known gambling web sites. Or they have a blacklist of IP addresses they don't allow users to access.

Either way it is unlikely he will be able to easily get around it. And if he did that might be considered a violation of company policy.

Why would he want to take the software off and risk getting fired? just use another computer!

Being a systems engineer I have to say this was good for a laugh.

Typically work computers use a VPN and then a proxy/firewall, filtering out inappropriate (non work related sites), again in most cases this is all tracked by the employer, do not use a work computer for gambling purposes and that includes work issued phones. It's 2020, assume everything is monitored.
