Question by Muahaha: How do i get around Websense even it has proxy sites blocked?

My school has Wbsense blocking everything interesting on the net, myspace, youtube, you think of it they have it blocked. So how do i get around websense even if they have proxy sites blocked?

Best answer:

Answer by Peter K
Simple. You ask the system admin to unblock it giving all your valid academic reasons for needing it and voila! Job done!

Now if only schools blocked Yahoo Answers we wouldn’t have all these kids asking about web proxies.

    You need to set up your own proxy server on your computer at home. It’s not a small task, but it can be done for free.

    You use Apache server and install a Perl interpreter then install a SSL layer to encrypt your communications. The home computer does the surfing and routs the results to your remote machine. You’ll need to know the IP address of your home computer, and if you’re behind a router firewall, you’ll need to configure the ports to allow traffic.

    The Internet group, has done the groundwork for this and has a very helpful web page.

    Like I said, it’s not a small project, but you can pull it off if you persevere. I’ve done it myself, and it does work.

    I use these 3, they all work for anything. Many of the proxies posted on here have alot of popups or anoying adware and the displayed website is all messed up. This proxy shows the webpage as is, the only ads are on the main page (they are quite useful for finding other proxies)

    A really good one is

    And so far it’s not blocked at school or work =)

    Try – I set it up a few days ago so should still be unblocked at most places! (It’s using a new script that has better support for Myspace, Facebook, bebo etc)

    Here’s a few other, older ones:

    Good luck! :)
