Yea I tried to change the proxy by going into lan setting and putting in a proxy, but it didn't work. Our Computer Specialist is really cool and he teaches us a lot about computers and he told me that our school(s) in our city disable the changing of the proxy. But he said I could use one in there. He mentioned something about the web interface I need to ask him more, but does anyone know how i could do this? He said that there we are bunch of them. He wants to see if I can figure it out.

They did that at our college. As they only block the proxy changing on IE, we downloaded portable firefox (download here), and could then change the proxy settings through that. (And browsing with firefox is so much nicer ;) ) This an be run from your user space, or from a USB drive.

Remember - The simplist method is often the easiest.

Yea I already figured out that way and many more ways of doing it. Plus school is out and I am going to a new school next year in a different city. YEAY I can figure out different ways to bypass it!

hehe just remember to be careful in what you do. We had someone who very luckily escaped a jail sentence from our college due to hacking past the network ;)

Ya but that is college. I am only in Middle School. I don't think I could get into that much trouble and plus I am not an adult yet. We aren't really doing anything that illegal. Just trying to look at wikipedia because the homepage is blocked.

Its still against the computer misuse act, and could also breach on the data protection act as well which makes it illegal.

And also, even if your not an adult yet, anything you do at your age could stop you getting a job when your older, among many other things.

But hey, im not here to judge.. just to point out the facts. :)

Well actually they erase your record as a juvenile and it doesn't show up as an adult, so no it wouldn't prevent me from getting a job. But you must be careful when you are doing it.

I cant believe no one has said to connect to a remote linux box through xserver and view websites from there.

xserver ports are blocked you say? change the config on your linux server to run xserver on port 80 :-).

Even the admins asked me how i did this, so they could check on their email from home.

EVEN BETTER: turn ssh tunneling on your xserver and now not only have you got out of the proxy problem, but they cant read ANY of the tcp/ip or udp traffic you send to that server because its all encrypted.

Good idea on avoiding school filters ;)

Well I'm sure ya all kno how to bypass the Google Images filter and such without using a proxy.

1) Google.de

2) Now, go to advanced settings, and set the main language back to english

3) search pictures away :)

Then again, our WebSense filter's pretty lax anyways...

what we did for google images was simple, search for lets say jennifer aniston, wait for the results, then click images, that got us passed ranger from sentinel software. :cheesy:

I go to a public school and i don't think this quote works well.
It seems that our computer technicians already bypassed that fact. tried to do something similar to that but however, it was a waste of time. Our computer technician seems to be a very smart guy. I think he even has a log that keeps tracks of what each user does. But i don't know for sure. the guys is quite the smart one to figure out this stuff as well.

Also another thing to add, he has blocked "non-administrator" users from accessing C: and many menus from the computer. Therefore reg edit is out of the question. Can't change the internet options and can't access command prompt to ping my way in.

Also another thing to add, can't download files from school, it is also blocked. This computer technician is very smart in regards to computer security

What do you put in these proxies? I am quite confused really about the proxy things. I don't really know how to configure the proxy of any internet browser.

I also tried to go into a few anonymous proxies but the filter regarded going to these servers as loopholes. This is quite a hassle for a person who just wants to checck their emails regularly or go onto forums

O h and i also to use firefox portable via my mp3 player, therefore, i am able to use firefox with ease. or try to anyways. I haven't been able to actually use the internet with firefox just yet

Well to get around school filters I just use..
www.nickoli.net scroll over search and click puppies then click continue to search engine, and theres a html cgi proxy. Just go to google first and then you can go any where through google. IE type gamefaqs.com in google and then click search and then click or wherever you want to go. Works for me 100% of the time.

To restrict Internet access at a school, perform the following:

  • Remove end-user admin/power rights
  • Disable external drives/storage (ROMs, USB, floppies, etc.)
  • Upload a custom HOSTS file to each system that only allows access to the filtering server (local or remote)
  • Preconfigure the system's DNS settings and prevent end-users from modifying them
  • Install or use hosted-filtering software. For the first 6 weeks, put it in 'watch mode' and archive all of the typical websites users visit. Then enable filtering and create rules to block those sites.

For filtering solutions, you can use something like SurfControl (kinda pricey for less than few hundred seats) or an easier solution might be a hosted-solutions from someone like SecureMyCompany.

HTH.

those proxy sites dont work at our school. And those other this that guy just mentioned about restricting access, You would have to have admins privledges in the first place in order to do so. You must simply be stupid not to figure that out. We assume that we dont have the admin's password here. Otherwise, there would be no need to 'try to bypass' the internet proxies... Otherwise I would have simply opened every simgle port in the firewall.

Here is the biggest problem I see going through 6 pages of this discussion...

#1 I have safe eyes filter on my home computer... sucks.. lol
#2 the only.. I repeat... only website that you people have quotes that work is http://proxify.com ... and that one sucks cause it isnt free lol.... so every site allow you two clicks into it and stops you from going on until you fork up the money.
#3 safeeyes registers all those sites as a loophole... and won't let you past.
#4 I cant change proxies, and yes the google.de works.. but guess what you can see the sites and the picture... but when you try to access them... block city.

please help!

>I have safe eyes filter on my home computer... sucks.. lol
Yes, that definitely sucks.

>safeeyes registers all those sites as a loophole... and won't let you past.
Maybe because SafeEyes doesn't want people circumventing the filter?

>but when you try to access them... block city.
Awww.

Look, the purpose of the filters are to prevent YOU from accessing certain content. So why should I try to help you get around filters? (Not that I'm not entirely innocent of this practice myself, but I certainly don't ask for help when I'm unable to circumvent the filters.) And I don't even know what you're trying to view (certain things come to mind)

It will be on for atleast 6 more months. so ya... please help now?

^hmm... If you are gonna go and look down on people,, please dont even post. If you are gonna be a nuisance, you shouldn't be here.
If you are here to help, then help us away. if such a topic was to be banned, it would have been blocked ages ago. People are here to help, not riducule the topic


Hmm... admin privlages are required to access this filter eh? hmm... interesting, very interesting....

That site there will give you mabye something to work with. Not sure about it though but it is worth a try.

>If you are gonna go and look down on people,, please dont even post.
And why should I help someone who lies to me?

The filter doesn't need a password to be uninstalled. The Add/Remove Control Panel will remove it, no questions asked.

OK well I agree with teatea... i came here for help not to be ridiculed. And You didnt think I thought of going to add/remove programs? I did... and the system pulled up "You need administrative password to delete this program." And if you dont believe me I go to WTAMU in north texas... lol ok... i am 19. So if anyone has any ideas on how to bypass... and not be a jerk about it... I'm hear to listen.. and thank you for your time.

>the system pulled up "You need administrative password to delete this program."
So enter your administrator password for your computer. Or have you forgotten that password as well?

0

Ok...
#1 please quit mocking me...
#2 it pulls up the safeeyes lock... :Enter user name ADMIN PASSWORD.... and uninstall code. So please quit mocking me... and qquit being cynical... just... if you're not going to help then dont post anything. Isnt that what this forum is about? Bypassing filters?
