How do I bypass a web content filter that also has proxy sites blocked?

Anyone have any ideas? I use a mac and a pc at work. They have EVERYTHING blocked, including every single web proxy and other anyonymizer sites. I am able to use the google translate method, but that isn't good enough. I don't have admin rights on my computer either, but I am a "power-user" (some permissions enabled).

Try to set your computer up to be a proxy server that runs on any port other then 8080, 80, and 3128 or use a proxy server that runs on any other port then 8080, 80 or 3128.

These are default ports that are used with open proxies that allow you to by pass filters such as access-lists. Routers would never be setup to block ports 80 and 8080 because it is the port that most web servers use.

Actually I think your mistaken in thinking all proxies are just some website like hidemyip.com or fastprox.com that you go to and type a web address. I can give you about 5000 IP addresses of anonymous proxies right now that you can use to bypass your filters.

I think you should do some research on proxies because not all of them can be blocked. That would require blocking every IP or blocking all ports that run 80, 8080, and 3128 which isn't practical if you wish for you users to have web access.

If you understood what proxies were you would have no trouble finding and using them to bypass filters.

Can anybody recommend a good web content filter for around 50 users?

Our company is looking for a web content filtering application for around 50 users. I'm only interested in a URL and content filtering solution, not just URL blocking.

Thanks.

Cannot connect to internet from windows desktop through fedora 9 web content filter?

I have a server setup to use Squid and DansGuardian on a Fedora 9 OS. The server is working fine and blocking everything that should be blocked. For some reason though I can not connect to the internet from a Windows XP Pro client computer when using the proxy server.

Is there a script or something that needs to be done on the windows computers in order to connect through a linux proxy server?

I'll assume you are using IE on windows. You need to go to your "Internet Options" dialog. You can get there from either the control panel or IE. Then click the "Connections" tab and select "Lan Settings". Enter your proxy address to make sure you're using the proxy you have set up. Now, Squid conforms to HTTP/1.0 which means there are a couple of things you need to watch out for since most browsers and servers use HTTP/1.1 by default. Squid will convert all HTTP/1.1 requests to equivalent 1.0 request and servers are supposed to handle that correctly. There are some number of servers however that do not deal with 1.0 requests correctly when it comes to the Accept-Encoding tag. Suffice it to say some servers will respond to requests with a "chunked" encoding type which is not valid in 1.0 and will be rejected by squid. What you will see in the browser in this case is a blank page that spins for a long time. Luckily there is an easy workaround in squid. Add the following lines in squid.conf and restart squid (or just 'squid -k reconfigure'):

acl badenc_domains dstdomain .msn.com
acl badenc_domains dstdomain .hotmail.com
acl badenc_domains dstdomain <.other.domains.com>
header_access Accept-Encoding deny badenc_domains

If you want to bypass any web filter or proxy server blocking any site, you can use Opera with Tor to safely and anonymously view or download whatever you want, because it uses the Opera (Internet Suite), so its really, really fast and the Tor network leaves no trace or history.

Plus This Opera Tor Bundle can be run off any disk: USB, network drive or hard drive.


Opera Tor - Opera + Tor + Privoxy
http://letwist.net/operator

It's basicially a pre-configured bundle and optmized with the Opera Browser, The Onion Router and Privoxy. Just Run: Tor, Privoxy and Opera or click on "Start" in the bundle folder and freely surf away.


You can use these sites to confirm that your orginal IP and location were hidden.

Web content filter?

New postby Charmaine » 28 Oct 2012, 13:53

I'm asking an opposite question of what most people would ask. At my school there is a filter (Maybe Windows Server) that says "Access Denied (policy_denied)

Your system policy has denied access to the requested URL.

For assistance, contact your network support team."

I would also like this on my home computers to filter internet access. How could I do this? I want that note to appear instead of a brand-name filter that can be looked into being hacked. Or, is there free software that can redirect you to a page of your choice? Thanks.
