school's blocked ugn - 03/23/04 05:17 AM

Can anyone give me some pointers as to how i can bypass the block(from my school) on sites like ugn, downloads.com, and many other essential sites? Its ligit for me to view these sights as long as i use my notebook, but everything always gets blocked. I also realise that expecting a step by step run through is unexpected i am just looking for some hints or whatever is given. :rolleyes:
I will post a link next time i go on their' network of the blocked notice, if thats any help.

try: http://ugn.phreakgeek.com/ although you'll have to do some rewriting for the BBS url's if it works as the BBS uses undergroundnews.com to load data...

Also, can you get to http://www.promodtecnologies.com from there?

Jaspel, maybe try using https instead of http. My school has tons and tons of sites blocked , but any site that has https(http over ssl) is easily viewed. They seemed to have only configured their filters to block things on port 80, so you may see if your school did the same. To do it, try https://www.undergroundnews.com and if they dont have their filters configured to block things with https then you should be able to view that.

Lol fun shit.. in that case, when you go and look at the board, just copy/paste url's and change the http to https...

See, in order to rewrite the url's for the board on my end it'd effect everyone, and since we don't have a "trusted root" on our SSL certificate users would be prompted with "accept this cert?".

I'm still awaiting highlander's donation so we can get a trusted cert for 2004/2005 but he's been swamped lately and I haven't really seen him much.

Heh. I had much of the same problem. Use an http proxy. It works as a web router between http sites. A lot of these sites will be blocked, but some wont. Just goto any search engine from school, and type in http proxy, and link on links until it allows one of the sites.

I know websafe used to be allowed, until they shut down, or changed services or whatever they did. If I'm remembering correct you can also try megaproxy.

Same thing here.... I went to http://home.comcast.net/~dase818 since our school uses a keyword filter as well. This site doesn't contain banned words like proxy.
