Unblocking websites from a school computer

Recommended Posts

At my school the main server is ran by a absolute genius i have tried many times to bypass the proxy but it seems most British schools have servers what can smell a proxy from a mile and as i was warned do not try and bypass the proxy you will be permanently banned from the schools computers and you will have to do only hand written stuff if you are doing a it course so ye don't do it.

The head of IT when I went to school actually let me hack the network so he could patch the exploits.

My proxy seems to work fine at school. If all you want to do is sneak a peek at the forums a smartphone is your best bet. Just go to your car or hide in a dark corner in the library ;)

I can name 2 cheap ways :D

1st: Doesn't help to much but I know for youtube you can type http:// b4 the adress and it will go...

2nd: Upon startup put the computer in safe mode. This will overide the admin stuff for the PC. My architectural design teacher would lock our pc so we would just go in safe mode. To say the least we tested it on some "interesting" websites. This also leaves no trace as when you turn off the pc it returns to normal..

I use the Opera We Browser. It connects to the internet through a different, usually unblocked way. It's free to get so I highly recommend it.

Our high school admin was stupid enough to set his password as 12345, which we cunningly discovered while watching him punch it in.

Mass lols were had, setting entire rooms to shutdown or opening random ytmnd pages. We even had Quake 3 set up on every pc in the school for a massive lan game.

You go to school to learn. Just wait to get home to go on the forums. Also the school administrators probably know all the secrets you know. It's their job to prevent you from getting on certain websites so that you can learn. So don't try it.

Just don't waste your opportunity at education.

https at the start of the link instead of http

These methods would not work.

Adding the S in HTTPS, or even HTTP won't do anything as TLS doesn't exist in Youtube unless you are uploading a video, and by default browsers do not need a HTTP before an address as it's a legacy requirement from older revisions of browsers.

And as for Safe Mode, that would do bugger all to circumvent the firewall as it's held on a Network Server in this case, not the user's PC.

I usually use hidemyass.com for these types of stuff. It works for me at my school.

Just type on dayzrp.com on the web proxy and then just continue to look at threads.

This works for normal hosts file blocks for websites.

Try it :)

Using Safe Mode generally only works at home (with poor admin permissions) or in places where there is an explicit local blocking client or app (usually at home or small net cafe). Browsing the web in safe mode leaves you and everyone else on the network VERY exposed. Any PC should require an admin PW for Safe Mode anyway or they are very poorly configured.
