I'm generally kinda tired of trying to do in-class research and having the sites blocked that I need; does anyone know of a bunch of proxy servers that will let me get around that?

I'm looking for 1 too, most of the one I find are blocked by the school's internet already. If anyone has any sites that they know will not be blocked, that would be extremely helpful.

You can use my site if you wish. It is password protected to avoid risk of being found.

Don't worry.. he doesn't know what he's saying.
why post user name and password -- very stupid thing to do.

google "cgi proxy"

To be fair, the proxies do block several useful sites. On the other hand, they appropriately block a lot of sites too ;)

so your school blocks your "research" into pr0n sites. Why should we help you get around that?

No thats not what I'm looking for. I am a journalist and I can't get to the gay, lesbian, and straight alliance website and I can't access the background information on the Gay-Straight Allience. Thats all I'm looking for, not porn. Please don't judge me because you don't know me.

Thanks for the site riskbling

Yep, I have the same problems at my school. If I want to go to any website other than Iloveschool.com I am blocked. If you find a proxy website they are blocked to cause of keyword blocks. Anyways, I hope you find this useful :)

tough luck. Those sites aren't related to your schoolwork so you have no business visiting them at school.
If they are so related, you can get the school to unblock them.

This is one time I wish I knew how to hijack your web site to that I could trash it. Anyone stupid enough to post the user name and password on any public site diserves the very worst that can happen to his site. I swear that you must have the IQ if a grape.

>>It is password protected to avoid risk of being found
Not any more you numbskull.

It's a proxy server!
I believe threatening to illegally hack his server is against the Daniweb rules

Are you kidding me? Maybe you should learn comprehension skills before you flame in rage. You are an idiot.. I created the User: Dani with the password: web to give him access to my proxy website. He has a login to access a web page that I put a restriction on so that not just anyone can access the web page. I notice you have a good 6k post under your belt are they all this dumb? Just cause you are a Moderator that thinks he knows everything doesn't mean you get special treatment and get to bad mouth people. Help someone out and get called a "numbskujll" by someone that does not have the slightest clue evidently... I live in Missouri too, whatsup?

P.S. Read it again and let me know if you get it. If not try reading it again after that. If all else fails I will try to explain it to you in the greatest detail.

>>Are you kidding me?
No. Now everyone in the world has access to your computer.

>>I notice you have a good 6k post under your belt are they all this dumb?
No, only the really stupid ones for opening their computer up to every hacker in the universe.

>> I put a restriction on so that not just anyone can access the web page
You are a trusting soul aren't you? Do you really think that is going to stop a good hacker? I logged in using the user name and password, had no problems at all, but I made no attemps to hack your computer.

>>Just cause you are a Moderator that thinks he knows everything doesn't mean you get special treatment and get to bad mouth people
I agree -- don't think of my post as one from a moderator but just a normal poster. If I was going to use my mod skills then I would have deleted your post and given you a very bad infraction. But I won't do that in your case.

>>P.S. Read it again and let me know if you get it
Don't need to re-read it. My point is that you opened your computer up to every hacker. My comment about wanting to destroy your computer was really toung-in-cheek, an idle threat, wishful thinking.

There was no need for you to bad rep me. You were way out of line in this thread, and everyone knows it

Any website on the net is open to every hacker in the world everyone in the world already had access to my computer in the same fashion before. There is no difference if I take the password off or leave it on. The user name and password allows the viewer to access content. A members only type area. I specifically made the User: dani and Pass: web so anyone that saw that post could access the content in which you could get to with that user name and password. The way you act is if it was an Administrator password to login to my server. I am no idiot and in no way did this make my website more vulnerable. I do not claim to be a genius of server security, but I know when it starts to thunder.

Ok maybe I over reacted. I apologize for calling you all those names.

Sarcasm does not get people very far :)

I do find it a bid odd though that you are retired USAF and I am DEP USAF leaving this summer (3x0x1). What was your career field?

>>and I am DEP USAF
That explains a lot about you -- Air Force Brat are you :)

>>What was your career field?
Statistical Analyst for the Comptroller (moneybags). Worked closely with Accounting & Finance as well as Budget. We used to loose millions of dollars just in rounding the money to the nearest 100 million. That's probably why I can never keep my personal checkbook balanced, and why I let my wife do it :)

Yeah, I've found that rounding my checkbook to the nearest 100 million really doesn't help either :P

Not quite an Air Force brat, but my biological father was in the army for 4 years. Not gonna make the same mistake he did haha. Suprised your not a 3c0x1 or 3c2x1 or were you at one point time?

These are my bases I am thinking about; What kinda mistakes do 1st term airmen make?
1>Ramstein AFB
2>Scott AFB
3>Wright Patterson AFB

I really don't care what you have to say. You have no business telling me what I am or am not alowed to view.

True, but your school does because its their computers, not yours. Buy your own computer and do the research at home.

>You have no business telling me what I am or am not alowed to view.
I'm sensing some missing steps in the logic chain. Let me spell it out for you: your school owns the internet connection and thus has every right to tell you exactly what you can and cannot view. Your school has set blocks so that you cannot view the sites you want. Therefore you are not allowed to view those sites. Is that simple enough for you?

Maybe instead of trying to get around the blocks, which most schools would see as illegal activity and punish you appropriately for, why don't you ask for the blocks to be removed for the sites you wish to view?

Which would you rather experience?

  • Sending an official request through the system and getting what you want by following the rules.
  • Getting caught for hacking the system and being suspended or expelled.

btw, I never told you you can't visit those sites. All I told you is that it's not our business to help you do things which your school has told you not to...

So go play with yourself in the lockerroom as a substitute for not being able to visit those pr0n sites during lunchbreaks and stop bothering us.

Bah, most school blocks are lame and easy to get around. So long as you are not an idiot about it, and get stuff traced back to you then you can't get caught either.. Good luck using the proxy ;-)

Most blocks in general are lame and easy to get around, but that doesn't make it any less wrong. If you don't get caught it just means that now you have one more immoral action on your conscience.

Hey, don't get upset because you are an idiot and think breaking the law is immoral

haha.. what makes it wrong or immoral? Morality is relative. Simply because the school says it is wrong doesn't mean that you have to believe so too.

>Simply because the school says it is wrong doesn't mean that you have to believe so too.
You can believe what you want, but you still have to obey the rules of the reigning authority. In this case that would be the ones who own and control both the computers and internet connection: the school. If you can't or won't follow their rules, you've waived your right to use the equipment.

Yeah if you get caught.. but you said "If you don't get caught it just means that now you have one more immoral action on your conscience." Which seems to indicate that you believe whatever the 'reigning authority' deems illegal is immoral. If there was a law banning the use of computers, would you then consider it immoral to break this law and use a computer?
