Do the following Search

Do the following
Search Google for "allinurl:nph-proxy.cgi OR nph-proxy.pl" (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=allinurl%3Anph-proxy.cgi+OR+nph...)
Or "allinurl:PHProxy.php" (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=allinurl%3APHProxy.php&btnG=Search)
That should defeat most if not all school proxies

Proxy

A way around it would be to use a proxy server to load internet information through the proxy as opposed to directly from the website. You're going to have to either set one up yourself, or buy one....

He He He

Now you're my kind of person.
Here's what I do with SurfControl:
Enter proxy info.
Add site to No Proxy list in Connection Settings.
Done!

Use Google as a proxy!

(Source: Google Free Proxy! http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/h/4807 )

Just go to: http://www.google.com/translate?langpair=en|en&u=ENTER_URL_HERE

If your school's filter isn't that smart. The only way to do it is to use a proxy that both isn't blocked and encrypts URLs. Good filters scan the entire URL for blocked addresses.

Agreed.

"I do know everything, just not all at once. It's a virtual memory problem." Priceless.

No app can bypass a filter

No app can bypass a filter that isn't at the workstation level (very rarely will there only be a block at this level). Here's some hope, though: most filters will allow anything on a secure server (https://). I forget why, but there are a couple proxies out there that operate on https. Try https://www.proxyweb.net . I've used it before; the only problem is that it's not always up. I just tried it now and it's up, though.

BTW, what is your school's filter? 8e6?

Are you sure it was the filter? If you got a message saying that it couldn't connect, then it's not because of the filter, it's because the site's down or is not accepting any traffic at the moment.

Tech School

I go to Landstown Highschool and Tech Acadmey in virginia Beach. The only thing high tech at our school is the proxy server which uses symentech and the students who ge by the server. I know a few people who set up their own proxy server to get by ours but they wouldn't give me the ip. I found many ways to bypass a proxy but eventuly the CRS people will find out what you are doing and block it. The only perment solution is to create a proxy server but my isp won't allow me to set one up. some basic ways to get around different proxy settings:

https://- as arleady mentioned

google translate- also arleady mentioned

google.co.uk--different languages of google may work

altavista - uses babble fish translate

webproxys - after about a week all web proxys get blocked and are also full of virues

google cash-- take a webadress and search for it in google then click the google cash button this works some times but it is not always uptodate

These are the easyist ways to get past a proxy as long as the CRS don't find out so if you use these do not share the information with coworkers/fellow students because the more people findout how to get around the faster the news will get to the CRS.

Translate/other language

Translate/other language methods will fail on good filters because they don't encrypt the url. If you want to set up a proxy with your home computer, there's a program that was mentioned above. Or you can set up your home computer as a server and write a php program if you're really determined.

for IRC ?

It would be very helpful to be able to bypass my school's firewall just so I can chat on IRC without having to use the CGI-IRC web client. ( http://cgiirc.sourceforge.net/ )

http://www.your-freedom.net/ is you a good choice, but it requires java, give it a try if you have java installed in your school system.

Well...

...it may do d job but still... it isn't portable! In my opinion I would prefer something with no installer, and so wouldn't need admin priviliges.

Nothing too fancy about that

Nothing too fancy about that site... They're just using CGI:IRC, which you can install on any webserver that supports Perl/CGI.

My school has an annoying firewall too that basically blocks any ports except the standard stuff (21 for FTP, 25 for SMTP, etc.). I even asked them once about opening up a port and they basically said unless I needed it for school-related business it wasn't going to happen.

Sounds like my Uni.

Almost every(if not every) port above 80 is blocked(Nix box firewall). Can't use IM or webmail. Very annoying. My sweetie's Uni, on the other hand, is wide open as far as ports go. They like policies & mandatory profiles instead. Wink
