Try calling your ISP and ask them "Are you using a proxy server" & "Should I use a client program to allow access to local application"

How do you un block facebook at school? does anyone no!?


Hello,

If your school administrator has blocked facebook.com he/she most likely did so through the router or a special firewall. So, attempting to change these settings would be impossible.

One solution is to use a proxy. At my old job, they blocked certain sites so me and my friends set up a proxy through a linux machine with SSL and we would set firefox to use the proxy.

My school is good at blocking websites and i dont know how to get on facebook


Things you will need is "Guts" and "Guts" everything.Please follow the below steps and enjoy.

1 . FACE BOOK BY PROXY Everyone knows that school is a giant waste of time, especially in America. But the popular thing nowadays is disallowing students the right to waste their own time getting into all kinds of trouble on the Internet when the teacher thinks everyone's grinding away on schoolwork. That's gotta stop. What you need is a proxy. See the resources section below for the freshest batch of unblocked, unknown proxy addresses that you can use to sneak around your school's face book blocking software.

2 . FINDING AN UNBLOCKED PROXY A proxy is essentially a middleman. You're at school and your school doesn't want you accessing Face book, so what you do is get a proxy to do the dirty work for you and bring you and Face book together in Internet bliss. And the whole time you're using face book, the school just sees that you're on some no name website... the proxy site. But it can be more difficult than you think because your school's blocking software is frequently updated to block all the new proxies and naughty websites popping up every day. The trick is to find the freshest proxy lists, that way you know you're using a proxy that your school has probably not yet blocked.

3 . HOW TO WORK THIS THING? Here's one of the newest proxies to pop up in the last few hours: http://969696.Co.CC When you go to the above URL you find a box that says, "Enter the URL Address:" What you're going to want to do right here is enter in the URL address that your school has blocked. In this case it's Face book we're trying to access, so go ahead and type in "http://www.facebook.com" and hit Enter, or for the purists you can click on the Surf Now! button.

4 . WAIT The bad thing about proxies is they tend to be really slow and difficult. Sometimes they work like a charm. Other times they work like a curse. You have to remember that you're using another computer to access a website and then bring that website back to you. Combine this with a school full of slow networks and clogged computer systems and you end up with quite a bit of waiting time on your hands. But if you're sitting on the Internet at school with enough time on your hands to research how to access Face book at school, it's probably safe to say that you don't really have much else better to do anyway.

5 . JOIN THIS FACE BOOK GROUP Ironically enough, one of the top places to find all the newest proxies relevant to unblocking Face book is actually a Face book group. See the resources section below for a link, but do yourself a favor and join this group from your home computer and check out all the newest proxy information at night before school. That way you'll be the hippest dude in school - the dude who can always get on Face book.

Hope the above information will be helpful to you.
Thanks.

How to access facebook from work with a restriction to social websites


You'll be needing a PROXY server in order to side side step your work's firewall. However that firewall is there for a reason - Shouldn't you be working like?

List of proxies to try (Bear in mind that your place of employment's firewall will already have a list of sites to block INCLUDING many proxy sites so you may have to try a few before you get lucky). Try these sites:

http://www.proxysiteslist.net/

http://www.proxytoolbox.com/

http://www.proxy4free.com/page1.html

http://www.bestproxysites.com/

http://jsbi.blogspot.com/2007/05/complete-list-of-proxy-servers-to.html

Also bear in mind when using certain words in a search engine that your work's firewall will be aware of certain words and phrases to block, like the word "Proxy" for instance. So to search for proxy sites you would have to type PRO XY. Note the space between the O and the XY. The search engine will understand what you are looking for but the firewall may not.

Once you find a Proxy site that works, type your URL (Webpage address - EG: www.facebook.com) into the space provided on the page and click Search or go or whatever the command button says.

Kind Regards

At school my computer willnot allow me to go to certain websites how do i unlock it


You have to follow the instructions

Unblocking Websites Technique #1: Use Proxy Servers Proxy servers can make your computer access the internet in an anonymous way. They bypass the filters the network administrator has chosen to limit your freedom to explore the world wide web. Quite simply a proxy server is a computer outside the control of the computer network you’re using. Since proxy servers have their own IP address, they can be accessed from your computer. You simply connect to the proxy server and in turn it connects to the blocked website. You can now both read and interact with the blocked website.

If your computer has been restricted from the browser, once you have loaded up your browser, go to the tools tab and change the security settings. Suppose, for some reason, you do not wish to change the settings on your browser, then another option is to download and install another browser. If, for example, your restrictions are on Microsoft Internet Explorer download and install Mozilla Firefox to surf the web.

thanks

My computer at work wont let me go to websites


You don't. The Administrator of the company computers has internet access set to block certain websites.
You can't access Administrator level settings, therefore you cannot change them.

Should you somehow change them, the IT department will catch it in no time.

Errors found:Code 8024402C Windows can't check for updates


Description:
The 0×8024402C error code occurs because an incorrect character exists in the proxy override settings.
Possible Cause/s:
1. Incorrect character exists in the proxy override settings.
2. A misconfigured Proxy/Firewall can cause this problem.
3. You are trying to access Windows Update using VPN. The website and Automatic Update may not function properly.
4. The corporate environment does not have autoproxy implemented.
5. Your workstations sits behind a Microsoft ISA server.
Resolution 1:
Remove invalid characters from the proxy exception list and then clear the proxy cache:
1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. On the Tools, select Internet Options.
3. Click on the Connections tab.
4. Click on the LAN Settings.
5. Click on the Advanced button.
6. Please delete any entry in the Exceptions section.
Next, clear your proxy cache:
1. Click on Start, and then click Run.
2. Type cmd in the Open box to get a DOS prompt.
3. Type proxycfg -d at the command prompt, and press Enter.
4. Type net stop wuauserv at the command prompt, and press Enter.
5. Type net start wuauserv at the command prompt, and press Enter.
6. Now try the site again.
Resolution 2:
Reconfigure or update your firewall program:
1. Double-check the Proxy/Firewall settings. Add the following urls to the exception list within your Firewall/Proxy:
http://*.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
https://*.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
http://download.windowsupdate.com
Resolution 3:
VPN and Proxy.
You are trying to access Windows Update using VPN. The website and Automatic Update may not function properly.
Autoproxy is not picking up the wpad.dat proxy configuration file to determine the proxy to be used for the target URL. Thus we are going with no proxy!
1. Try to access Windows Update while not using VPN connection.
2. Use the proxycfg tool to specify a proxy server to use (proxycfg.exe -p <proxy server>). (contact your network administrator to find out the name and port of this proxy.)
This is every possible cause and solution for this error code and how to fix it. Please take the time to rate this Fixya for me for spending an hour researching every possible cause and solution for this code you posted for free, even if you don't figure it out. The solution to your problem is definitely here so read it carefully.
