    I had an idea on avoiding the school web filters. I'm pretty sure the filters work by looking at the meta names, and not the words in the webpage. And websites can be blocked manually.

    My friend has a website, and I was thinking whether it was possible for the website (which isn't blocked - yet?) to mirror a site dynamically, meaning it will mirror the site I request to visit, (that is blocked by the school filters), via the host server in which the website is based in.

    I mean dynamically as in that it will only mirror the site I request, not permenatly mirror the site.

    What sort of coding would I need? The site is in php format. Some help on this idea would be great!

    I used to go to www.altavista.com but google will work just the same, go to trnslate, type in the URL and translate from any language to english, does the job :thumb:

    but Bruno_me's is a much better method!

    type the IP address into the URL bar :)
    works about 50% of the time.
    if you dont know the sites ip go into command promp and type "ping bit-tech.net"

    have fun

    Depending on the filter, it sometimes works to type the IP address in hex or octal.

    Thanks! I'm at home right now, but when I get back to school I'll check out http://proxy.bruno-me.org/ and see if that works!

    The Bruno-Me bypass has allowed me to access some blocked sites - such as Southamptons University Website, which is blocked for some stupid reason. But other sites are still blocked.

    One site I really want access to is images.google.com , which, yes, you've guessed it, is blocked...

    Even better way is to know the admin user and pass for the filter server....

    handy as forms used to be filtered.

    Grrr, I'm on filter 7, which is the lowest filter you can get before no filters. Once, someone looked over the IT Teachers shoulder to find the passwords, but couldn't do it because theres one password to enter the computer account, another to enter the filter account to change filters and another to change individual filters. So sets of passwords...

    Might try tunneling through the net, but somehow that is probably not gonna work :waah: (And the net here is only 56K for the whole school :eyebrow: )

    Aye they block *everything* at my school; no images.google.xx, no cmd prompt, access to C:\. It can get annoying after a while, especially when you want to find an image for a legit reason :(

    They did leave the admin username/pass in a plain text file once though - it was a good week.

    At college, we use opera for getting to Yahoo's Launch (it has different proxy settings for some reason, but they don't seem to work with firefox...)

    Although network-tools IP tracing is handy, one of our tutors is of the opinion that we should be given the ability to access any site we want, mainly because he (and we) know that the firewall isn't as secure as thay (the admins) think it is.

    I'll try Bruno's proxy tomorrow and see what happens.

    on another note, proxy2.bruno-me.org works too ;), and it's hosted by yo-duh_87 [/plug]

    anyway, [grey-area if you should do this] if your school has a unix server with some kind of a web server, perl, and a shell acount for you, you can run your own cgiproxy on that server, using their own server against their own proxy
