Well, I , like most people have tried going to facebook, youtube, etc. at work (in my case school) and noticed that some popular sites where blocked! I tired using proxys but they mostly did not work , or were too slow! some even had viruses. My buddy told me a way which there is no need to have proxy to bypass a site. Here is that method -

Open the Browser (Firefox)
Go to the site you wish to go (Hulu.com)
When it says that you cannot go there and that it is restricted
Go to the address bar and add a 's' after the http
So it should look like this : https://whatsiteyouron.com
And TADA your site should would, well i found that some sites dont =(

What this does is that it opens a secure http (and if you hadn't figured it out already , yes, thats what the 's' stands for) and the computer MOST OF THE TIME doesn't block https or isn't programmed to =)

Hope it works for you :)

I do worry about the information of this post, but still it is an information. Please do not hold Trap17 accountable.

The firewall and filters were established for reasons that the official of such institution spent hours and funds. So bypassing the firewall is never good idea always. You never know what you are letting in especially when used by amateurs. But the information should not be made available to only the privileged.

With my beleifs in open computing and my work place being the IT office in a school im torn here... A few years ago at school and college i used to try to bypass security a lot, proxies, using firefox, even making a visual basic browser so i could hide it with a click of a button. So i agree in principal with this info being out there.

However, consider *why* there are blocks here... Here at work we obviously have filters in place and that's because otherwise the kids just play games and go on facebook all the time and as a place of education these kids need to be taught. It's all well and good being on facebook during ICT lessons but what happens when you are at work in an office and someone asks you how to do something in MS Office? Or when you are home alone and need to print something urgently and yet you can work out how to open the document? These things are taught at school and without learning them you will fail at life.

Also i highly doubt this would be effective against most filters. The best methods are... Well to remove or avoid the filters altogether. I wont tell you how, instead let it be a lesson about lessons. Using a HTTPS connection instead of a HTTP one is generally blocked because the filters look at the domain rather than the URL so https://www.trap17.com is simply www.trap17.com as is http://www.trap17.com trap17.com and www.trap17.com and even HTTP encoded URLs have the same domain which is shown in the HTTP headers returned by the server. You cant avoid that... You can change the ones you send out but not what you receive. The only way to avoid that is to bypass the filters completely.

Do that here and you get a 6 week internet ban... (anyway, with a 9am-3pm day if you feel the need to be on facebook and cant wait a few hours to get home frankly you need medical help, not internet access....)

Yeah, it might work...not going to try it though. If it does work, and they find out about it...god only knows what kind of trouble it may create. It could be viewed as a cheap way of finding a proxy...and most places frown upon the use of them. But, good to know when I'm on my own internet.

I don't want to turn this into a debate on filtering, but consider the flip side and the problems caused. When I was at school the Internet connection was filtered through a proxy server. This was fine for blocking games websites, social networking sites, etc. However, it also used a keyword filter which caused no end of problems. For example, in History lessons (and in Politics ones) it was necessary for students to research topics such as fascism, the Nazi party and the Hitler youth. All blocked by the filter, which meant people couldn't get on with their work. The same applied to terms dealing with abortion, drug abuse, cloning and the like - all necessary research topics in Philosophy and Ethics class. While the principles of filtering are good, the execution is lousy in every circumstance I have ever seen it used and it therefore becomes necessary to bypass the system at times.

Also i highly doubt this would be effective against most filters. The best methods are... Well to remove or avoid the filters altogether. I wont tell you how, instead let it be a lesson about lessons. Using a HTTPS connection instead of a HTTP one is generally blocked because the filters look at the domain rather than the URL so https://www.trap17.com is simply www.trap17.com as is http://www.trap17.com trap17.com and www.trap17.com and even HTTP encoded URLs have the same domain which is shown in the HTTP headers returned by the server. You cant avoid that... You can change the ones you send out but not what you receive. The only way to avoid that is to bypass the filters completely.


I believe it would work on sites that are being blocked based on a keyword list of content rather than the URL (or at least that worked at my old school) because the proxy server/filtering software wouldn't be able to read the content of the page, and therefore wouldn't be able to filter it.

(anyway, with a 9am-3pm day if you feel the need to be on facebook and cant wait a few hours to get home frankly you need medical help, not internet access....)


*CHEERS* :) :D :( I could not agree with you more!

Haha... I seriously doubt that anyone will hold Trap17 accountable for that, so don't worry. Anyhow, for some reason, the Trap17 forum is blocked at school (but not the Astahost ones), and when we do access Trap17's pages, they are one of those old white pages instead.

I don't know the difference between to two though. Can someone tell me that?

Well, I'm definitely trying it. I'll see if it works. Some people had a way to making it work, but I don't know how they did it. Anyway, they now have a system of freezing your computer if you log in as "admin", so I don't know how I'm going to hack into it, though people did manage to unblock to filtering system.

The thing is, it's not only Facebook or MSN or Bebo. It's all the other educational websites as well. We were requires to search for flags of the world once, and tell you what, ALL the sites were blocked because they were "uncategorised". Seriously. That is just WAAAY too much. Plus, I don't have anything for Facebook or other sites anyway, as I don't use theri service.

I don't even play games... so seriously, what's the point of the filter?

I must admit to using proxies while in secondary school (11-16yrs) and at college i made my own browser to bypass their proxy completely and often used firefox... So i cant really say much.... :D I agree there are reasons to bypass filters. Still my warning remains!

another way to do it is using google translate or google cache. Search the site you want in google with the full www.site.com/page.htm format and then the first reult should have the "cache" link under it. This trick sometimes works fairly well (it also lets you around sites where ou have to register to read the forums)

Translate is another one, just go to http://www.google.co...age_tools?hl=EN scroll down to where it asks if you want to translate a page and select english in both boxes and type in your site :)

Neither are particularly effective though.

I need to get ready for work... as a network technician where i am going to to try to stop kids playing games using proxies etc.... how ironic!

The school blocks indeed are very annoying. However I will be posting a tutorial on how to get round them on every single company computer in the world. It will work on all, unless the hole internet is blocked.

Watch this section for it coming.

I don't like surfing on the net from school.They are tracking all the data and all that...

Why are you using all that tools and things to get websites unblocked.After school you can surf how much you want home.Isn't that better way? Why to cheat the school.If school rule says that you can't access some sites,then do not access them.

You can access using tools successful but that is not fear.Here in Macedonia,Skopje i have internet,and amazingly all websites are accessible via school's internet.We can do what we want,until the teacher says we need to stop. :) but if some websites were blocked i wouldn't like to use all that stuff.

I think you can get punnishment for that,right? Everyone can get all what you do on computer,i am sure school is using some tracking software or keyloggers.Becouse that computers aren't ours.

Really,i do not know why the filters are,but i am sure we shouldn't try to cheat them.Maybe school blocks the "interesting" sites so we will hear what we need to learn,instead of chatting and playing...

Or maybe i am wrong?

Torpark and Toropera worked for me. And you can have USB version of those as well. So that way you can use them on cyber cafes and school as well. Sites load slowly with tor but atleast it is worth to use as it gives good results instead of sites like anonymouse, t9space and my-ip-lock etc.

Firefox will often work on systems that dont whitelist programs. It would work on our system only they would need to know the proxy IPs to get any access to the internet. Any other IP from an anonymous server for example wont get any connection at all. We have the two proxies, one is unfiltered which we use and the other is filtered for the staff and kids, so a browser is useless without the IPs and our unfiltered IP is a guarded secret :)

It does work on quite a few systems though, just beware that you could be accused of endangering the network by bringing in uncertified programs and most networks have strong rules against using or bringing in software that is not already on the systems.

Haha, why don't you guys just use an Ubuntu live-CD(or life-CD as I tend call it). I do that because windows sucks and it's slow on our school's machines. We don't have anything blocking anything here in school tho :) Just use ubuntu cd and tor along with it, you'll do fine.
