How to access blocked websites without a proxy? Will reward anyone that helps me get in!!?
Question by jmack2k5: How to access blocked websites without a proxy? Will reward anyone that helps me get in!!?
I have a bet here at work (with the IT guys) to bypass our firewall and access blocked websites. I can use any method and not get in trouble for it. All they would tell me is that we use a cisco 501 firewall and a proxy servers will not work. We are on a t1 connection and use OPEN DNS. I am more than happy to reward whoever helps me with on paypal

It depends how locked down the network is.
Goto start->run and execute “cmd.exe”
type the command “telnet mail.google.com 110″ (without the quotes)
If the window goes blank then you are able to open a port to the outside world and would be able to run VPN through it.
This can be tricky to setup, however there are paid services that will help. A google search turned up http://www.bananahosting.com/vpn-service-accounts.htm which looked reasonable.
If this doesn’t work, let me know and I’ll try and get more info about your network configuration.
(If you are able to successfully do the telnet test but can’t setup a vpn, let me know and I’ll run a proxy on one of my servers for you on port 110)
