My office blocks facebook & youtube


When navigating the Web through a network with filtering software or hardware established, you will find yourself unable to access a variety of websites. Generally, Internet users faced with these restrictions use a proxy site to bypass the blocks on their networks and access restricted websites. However, this is not the only viable way to approach this situation. If you want to unblock websites on your network without using a proxy, you may use a virtual private network (VPN), which works as a gateway.

Instructions

1.Browse to the VPNGates website to unblock restricted websites on your network without the need for a proxy. The server provided by VPNGates reflects an unrelated IP address to ensure your security while you browse the Web anonymously with uncensored and unrestricted access to all websites. Additional features include unlimited bandwidth, security in unsecured locations like cafes and universities as well as online TV and instant messaging access. VPNGates offers users monthly, quarterly, semiannual and annual account choices. To view the pricing or set up an account, scroll down to the middle of the VPNGates website (see Resources).

2.Operate the RoadWarriorVPN service on your operating system to unblock websites through its virtual private network. This VPN server includes secured, encrypted Internet access as well as unlimited bandwidth. RoadWarriorVPN offers account options for one month, six months or one year. The RoadWarriorVPN accounts include a 24-hour refund policy, so if for any reason you aren't 100 percent satisfied, you may request a refund during cancellation through the "Self Service" tab at the top, left corner of the page (see Resources).

3.Navigate to the StrongVPN website and use its virtual private network as a gateway to unblock any restricted content on your network. Strong VPN provides a neutral IP address that enables anonymous and unrestricted web browsing privileges to all websites. Additional features include fast network connection, no bandwidth charges and live technical quality support 24 hours a day every day of the week. StrongVPN offers monthly or yearly accounts as well as yearly specials (see Resources).

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks

Registry Hacks


Menu Speed

When XP first appeared, there was a lot of conversation about the new interface, both good andad. In spite of the initial complaints, most users stick with the default settings rather than reverting to the Classic interface found in previous Windows versions. But you may want to change the delay you notice when you click on the Start Menu. I see no reason for there to be any delay when I click on the Start Menu. Effects are pretty, but I wouldn't click on it if I didn't have business inside, so let's get it open and get moving. The default speed can be adjusted with a quick Registry hack.
Go to the Registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\MenuShowDelay. The default value is 400. Set it to 0 to remove the delay completely, but if you do that it will be nearly impossible to move the mouse fast enough not to activate All Programs if you mouse over it en route to your final selection. Pick a number that suits your style, make the change, then test it until you find a good compromise between speed and usability.
Place Windows Kernel into RAM
It's a given that anything that runs in RAM will be faster than an item that has to access the hard drive and virtual memory. Rather than have the kernel that is the foundation of XP using the slower Paging Executive functions, use this hack to create and set the DisablePagingExecutive DWORD to a value of 1.
Edit the Registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ Session Manager\Memory Management\DisablePagingExecutive to 1 to disable paging and have the kernel run in RAM (set the value to 0 to undo this hack). Exit the Registry and reboot. Perform this hack only if the system has 256 MB or more of installed RAM!
Disable 8.3 Name Creation in NTFS
Files that use the 8.3 naming convention can degrade NTFS drive performance. Unless you have a good reason for keeping the 8.3 naming convention intact (such as if you're using 16-bit programs), a performance gain can be achieved by disabling it:
Set the Registry DWORD key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ FileSystem\NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation to 1. Exit the Registry and reboot.

Whenever you surf the Web, you leave yourself open to being snooped upon by web sites. They can track your online travels, know what operating system and browser you're running, find out your machine name, peer into your clipboard, uncover the last sites you've visited, examine your history list, delve into your cache, examine your IP address and use that to learn basic information about you such as your geographic location, and more. To a great extent, your Internet life is an open book when you visit.
Don't believe me? Head to http://www.anonymizer.com/snoop/test_ip.shtml. This page, run by the Anonymizer.com web service, tells you what your IP address and machine name are. And that's just a start. Click on the links on the left side, such as "Exposed Clipboard" and "Geographical Location." You'll see just a small sampling of what web sites can learn about you.
Much of the reason why web sites can find out this information about you is due to the trusting nature of the Internet's infrastructure and is inherent in the open client/server relationship between your web browser and the servers on the sites you visit. But a lot of it also has to do with the ability to match up information from your PC to information in publicly available databases—for example, databases that have information about IP addresses.
The best way to make sure web sites can't gather personal information about you and your computer is to surf anonymously; use an anonymous proxy server to sit between you and the web sites you visit. When you use an anonymous proxy server, your browser doesn't contact a web site directly. Instead, it tells a proxy server which web site you want to visit. The proxy server then contacts the web site, and when you get the web site's page you don't get it directly from the site. Instead, it's delivered to you by the proxy server. In that way, your browser never directly contacts the web server whose site you want to view. The web site sees the IP address of the proxy server, not your PC's IP address. It can't read your cookies, see your history list, or examine your clipboard and cache, because your PC is never in direct contact with it. You're able to surf anonymously, without a trace.
There are two primary ways to use anonymous proxy servers. You can run client software on your PC, which does the work of contacting the server for you, or you can instead visit a web site, which then does the work of contacting the server.

How can i fix http error 504,when im downloading microsoft office


Introduction

A server (not necessarily a Web server) is acting as a gateway or proxy to fulfil the request by the client (e.g. your Web browser or our CheckUpDown robot) to access the requested URL. This server did not receive a timely response from an upstream server it accessed to deal with your HTTP request.

This usually means that the upstream server is down (no response to the gateway/proxy), rather than that the upstream server and the gateway/proxy do not agree on the protocol for exchanging data.

504 errors in the HTTP cycle

Any client (e.g. your Web browser or our CheckUpDown robot) goes through the following cycle when it communicates with the Web server:
Obtain an IP address from the IP name of the site (the site URL without the leading 'http://'). This lookup (conversion of IP name to IP address) is provided by domain name servers (DNSs).
Open an IP socket connection to that IP address.
Write an HTTP data stream through that socket.
Receive an HTTP data stream back from the Web server in response. This data stream contains status codes whose values are determined by the HTTP protocol. Parse this data stream for status codes and other useful information.

This error occurs in the final step above when the client receives an HTTP status code that it recognises as '504'. Frank Vipond. September 2010.

Fixing 504 errors - general

This problem is entirely due to slow IP communication between back-end computers, possibly including the Web server. Only the people who set up the network at the site which hosts the Web server can fix this problem.

Fixing 504 errors - CheckUpDown

Use of proxies and caching is increasing on the Web. Our CheckUpDown robot will always try to 'drill through' to the real computer that actually hosts the Web site, but we do not have complete control over where our HTTP request actually ends up. If only one link in the chain of computers dealing with our HTTP request is broken, then an error such as 504 can easily occur.

Please contact us (email preferred) whenever you encounter 504 errors - there is nothing you can do to sort them out. We then have to liaise with your ISP and the vendor of the Web server software so that they can review the flow of IP data traffic between various computers under their control. However this is not an easy error to sort out, because the ebb and flow of Internet traffic makes this type of error very transient., with little chance of any real fix, as really there isn't much the end user can do?

Short answer, get another download site... or get a torrent link?

In my organization, youtube is blocked by IT administration by using open DNS.


Ask them why they block it.
Ask them if it's permissible to view YouTube, especially if you need it for your job.
There is probably a reason they block it; like they don't want people fooling around looking at YouTube instead of doing their work ;-P

Now if you want to watch YouTube or have access to other sites they block (and risk loosing your job) then you can use a "proxy".
You might be able to use a free proxy like http://www.torproject.org, or there are pay proxy services from around $10 USD a month.
Finally if you have internet at home you could setup your home computer to act as a "proxy server" while you are at work.

Understand how people find, explore & convert on your site - Now free. google_proxy.jpg
A simple Google search and you'll find dozens of really good PHP scripts on the Internet to help you create proxy servers in minutes for free. The only limitation with PHP based proxies is that you require a web server to host the proxy scripts and second, you also need a domain name to act as an address for your proxy site.
If you don't own a domain or server space, you can still create a personal proxy server for free and that too without requiring any technical knowledge.

Create a Free Proxy Server with Google App Engine Here's one such proxy site that you can build for your friends in China or even for your personal use (say for accessing blocked sites from office). This is created using Google App Engine and, contrary to what you assume, the process is quite simple.
Step 1: Go to appengine.google.com and sign-in using your Google Account.
Step 2: Click the "Create an Application" button. Since this is your first time, Google will send a verification code via SMS to your mobile phone number. Type the code and you're all set to create apps with Google App Engine.
Step 3: Choose a sub-domain* that will host your proxy server. Make sure the domain is available, agree to the Google Terms and click save. The sub-domain is also your App ID that will uniquely identify your proxy application.
For this example, we'll use labnol-proxy-server as the App ID though you are free to choose any other unique name.
Step 4: OK, now that we have reserved the ID, it's time to create and upload the proxy server application to Google App Engine. Go to python.org, download the 2.6.4 MSI Installer and install Python.

Not able to apply the proxy settings for internet explorer


Hi,

Open Microsoft Internet Explorer and from the 'Tools' menu select 'Internet Options'. from the 'tools' menu.

Select the 'Connections' tab.

Select 'LAN Settings'. In the 'Proxy server' section select 'Use a proxy server for LAN ..., enter your proxy address, and enter port 8080. 'Bypass proxy server for local addresses' is selected if you are accessing network resources through a intranet. When complete, select OK twice.
NOTE:

After you apply your settings to the web browser test your Internet connection by attempting to access an external Web site such as http://www.google.com. Test more than one Web site. If you are unable to access external Internet resources, verify the spelling of your entries. If spelling is correct, contact your company's helpdesk to find out if there is a problem with the corporate proxy server.



Regards.

I want to learn how to get on facebook at school


If you cannot go to facebook at school then that means that your school has setup a block on facebook which means you cannot enter any site that they do not allow. If so there are only a couple of things you could do but it is not a full guarantee it would work. It would be more likely a 50-50 chance. You could try using a web proxy or a free proxy server. Try searching google on web proxys. If these wont work most likely they already blocked those.

Block ultrasurf


Hi,

UltraSurf is a hard one to block from ISA itself because it uses the local host computer through port 9666 as it’s proxy to intercept browser requests and encrypt them through 443/SSL traffic through your corporate proxy server. UltraSurf uses a network of anonymous proxies like Botnets that can change dynamically at any given time.

So how can you successfully block it? Well I don’t know if you can totally but you may be able to deter it a bit.
A few ways are:

Policy – Do you have an acceptable use policy in-place? If you do then I would think the threat of job loss and termination should be a darn good deterrent.

At the local host – Using group policy, restrict access to the local host site in IE. That would be 127.0.0.1 and Ultra1 that it resolves to. If you have the capability, restrict TCP port 9666 on the local host outbound. Setting software restriction in group policy is another to prevent the UltraSoft application from running.

On the ISA – Go to http://www.isaserver.bm and download Steve’s blocking anonymous domain sets and configure a deny access rule to help block anonymous proxy access. You won’t totally stop access but the list will defiantly put a damper on accessing the most popular sites.

Collective software ClearTunnel is another ISA add-on to help uncover scrupulous activity.

Can't connect to internet when K9 program installed


Symptom You are unable to access any website
Causes
  • Your firewall is blocking K9
  • You are connected behind a proxy server
Solution If you receive an error that states "K9 Web Protection Not Responding," please click here. Otherwise, continue below.
You may be unable to access the Internet using K9 in a couple cases:
Case 1: Your firewall is blocking K9
If you are using a desktop firewall, it may appear that you cannot access the Internet. To resolve this issue, you will need to configure your firewall to "always allow" the following program to access the internet:
C:\Program Files\Blue Coat K9 Web Protection\k9filter.exe
Please consult your desktop firewall documentation for instructions on how to do this. Note that the location of this file will be different if you chose to install K9 in a different location.
Case 2: You are connected behind a proxy server
If you are REQUIRED to use a proxy server to access the Internet, you will be unable to use K9 Web Protection at this time. Examples of environments where proxy servers are common include schools, businesses, libraries, and hotels -- potentially any environment where one internet connection is shared over a large network. We hope to offer proxy compatibility in a future version of K9.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
