I don't know if this really belongs in the newbie section or anything but here goes: How do you get around the internet blocks on a network? Such as a school or library or whatever. I've checked out several sites on possible ways such as sites and everything but the only sites I've found are either not working at this current time or are already blocked by websense. Anyone have any suggestions?

proxies generally will allow you to avert some blocks; but it can be a pain to find some as some content filters just filter by keyword (including "proxy")

that's the problem, they've blocked anything that has proxy avoidance as a keyword and thus, there's not much of a way to get around it. I really can't figure this one out without hacking into the system...

you, hack, heh, yeh ok ...

Find proxies at home, then try them at school; if they're filtering the keyword "proxy" you'll find it impossible to find proxies at school lol...

Yeah, it'll also get your ass thrown into jail.

You can steal an Admin account on your schools server, but can't figure out how to get around a firewall hrmmm

prolly old ass NT servers and the "GetAdmin" exploit, or as usual a lame ass admin password. Hell some people even forget about the local "Administrator" account on some machines, usually only shows up if you boot into safe mode. Either method is not hacking. Its called taking advantage of a lazy admin.

As for being thrown in jail. very unlikely. Suspension/expulsion and some kind of probation maybe, but no jail time for just stealing admin. Funneling the budget into a private ofshore account though will.

The answer is:

Set up your own proxy on a high port.

My guess is that this school's filtering system isn't very advanced. Probably just a proxy server w/ a firewall to block certian types of outgoing traffic. and the traffic they block is probably all through port number. It is possible to block traffic at the packet level by it's header but I know they aren't doing that. My guess is if you set up a proxy on a high port like 65500 it will be unfiltered. If it is, I would check to see what other services besides http, port 80, that they allow out. place your proxy on this port and you will be all set.
