Proxies.
http://kryptonian-x.blogspot.com/2005/05/proxy-bypasser.html

If anyone ever needs to bypass their school/business/government filters, something there should do the trick. The one that was at darwin.servehttp.com is down, and probably will remain down.

How do you use proxies?
ibneko From: ibneko Date: March 22nd, 2006 09:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
(eeee, the cute kitty icon~)

In this case, these proxies "run" in your browser. So loading up one of them will bring you to a page that asks for a destination URL. Fill that in, and it'll load up the page you want, but masking information as necessary. For example, if work/whatnot blocks yahoo.com to keep you from checking your e-mail, you could go to, say, http://www.blockmy.info/, type in http://www.yahoo.com/ and log into your e-mail to check e-mail there.

Now, this doesn't always work, 'cause stuff get's broken... I tried writing my own some years ago to get through the school blocking services, but it was only partially successful. (either livejournal or gmail remained broken, I forget which.)

Sometimes, you'll get a proxy as:
proxy.somewhere.net:8080

In that case, it's a proxy server, and that needs to be configured through your internet settings (eh, options of your browser, typically, under advanced options), and add the server (stuff before ":", proxy.somewhere.net in this case) and the port (after ":", 8080 in this case)... I used to run one of these too, but you have to connect to my computer via ssh (secure shell) first......

Essentially, the basic idea behind them is that instead of:
Your computer -[some destination you're not supposed to go to]-> evil blocking network/firewall/gateway
Your computer <-["HAH, you're not allowed to go there"]- evil blocking gateway

it'd be more like;
Your computer -[proxy[some destination you're not supposed to go to]]-> evil blocking network/firewall/gateway -> proxy -[some destination you're not supposed to go to]-> internet
Your computer <-[requested data]- evil blocking gateway <- proxy <-[data]- internet

Ok, that sorta makes sense.

Still can't get BitTorrent to work either at home or school, but I don't think a proxy'll help.

Ah, no, proxies will actually make things worse for BitTorrent. XD

Define "work"? As in things download not at all? Or just really slowly?
melayneseahawk From: melayneseahawk Date: March 22nd, 2006 10:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
Not at all. Is v. annoying.
ibneko From: ibneko Date: March 22nd, 2006 10:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
Huuuuh. What are you using?
melayneseahawk From: melayneseahawk Date: March 22nd, 2006 10:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
Whatcha mean? Am using BitTorrent, and torrents downloaded from IsoHunt.
ibneko From: ibneko Date: March 22nd, 2006 10:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hum. Wanna try using Azureus instead? I can actually parse the logs for you and tell you why it's not working... (BitTorrent probably has logs, but I don't know where to tell you to go to find them, nor do I know the interface well enough to help troubleshoot...)
melayneseahawk From: melayneseahawk Date: March 22nd, 2006 10:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
Can I use the same torrents?
ibneko From: ibneko Date: March 22nd, 2006 10:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
yep, if you downloaded the torrent files and saved them somewhere (mmm, so maybe you'll have a file named "such-and-such.torrent" sitting on your desktop..)
melayneseahawk From: melayneseahawk Date: March 22nd, 2006 10:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yup, have those. Going to try it out...

What's the dif between Windows and Windows 9x?
ibneko From: ibneko Date: March 22nd, 2006 10:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
mmmm, dunno, what/where are you looking at?
melayneseahawk From: melayneseahawk Date: March 22nd, 2006 11:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
ibneko From: ibneko Date: March 22nd, 2006 11:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
Mmm, oh, go with the Windows version, and not the Windows 9x version. Unless you're running 95/98, in which case, you want 9x.

(one is for 32-bit operating systems, the other is for 16-bit.)
melayneseahawk From: melayneseahawk Date: March 22nd, 2006 11:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ah, hokay. *salutes*
melayneseahawk From: melayneseahawk Date: March 22nd, 2006 11:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well, it seems to be downloading, albeit slowly (ETA's at 3 days for a 2 GB file, but at least it's doing something). Danke!
ibneko From: ibneko Date: March 22nd, 2006 11:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
Heh. Yeah, sounds more or less about right, although it depends on the torrent. Took me about 2 days for 4 GB... What are you downloading, if I might be curious?

And there's a few things that might make it a bit faster... Poking a hole in the firewall on your computer helps, and turning on UPnP (Universal Plug 'n Play) support on your router/gateway also helps. Also, it always starts out a bit slower, 'cause it takes time for people to connect to you...
melayneseahawk From: melayneseahawk Date: March 22nd, 2006 11:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don't really know how to mangle the firewall appropriately, so I don't think I'll be messing with that.

And it's the Stargate movie, though if I can get this to work, I'll be downloading the rest of s9, too. Then I'll probably burn all of it to CD to get it off my hard drive.
ibneko From: ibneko Date: March 23rd, 2006 12:03 am (UTC) (Link)
Hehe, okie~

Hm, stargate has a movie? Interesting...
melayneseahawk From: melayneseahawk Date: March 23rd, 2006 02:07 am (UTC) (Link)
Movie came first, actually, in 1994 and the series came in '97.
ibneko From: ibneko Date: March 23rd, 2006 02:30 am (UTC) (Link)
Oooh, ok. Mmm, yay~ Something new has been learn-ed today~
