Question by Bob B: How do you surf the web using a proxy?

You know, the basics. Say your internet has many sites banned, for whatever reason. And so you want to get around that. How do you use a different proxy to connect to the internet?

I know you don’t want to hear this, but you shouldn’t even try because that is against the acceptable use policy at your school or work. They have sites blocked for safety and security reasons.

Trying to bypass their security is considered hacking and will get you banned from using any of their computers and probably even suspended, expelled or fired.

They can see and track everything you do so you WILL get caught. Not being able to use the computers at all would suck way worse than just using them to view allowed sites – wouldn’t it?

But go ahead and post all the proxies you can think of here so we know the new ones to block. Thanks for making it easy for us admins to keep blocking you!

    You would tell your webbrowser to use a specific proxy server (see the options of your webbrowser of choice). After that, there’s no difference for you, the user.

    It basically functions like this. You type in a URL and your webbrowser sends that request to the proxy server. That server fetches the URL you requested and returns it to you. So yep, this is a heck of a lot slower, but might be handy in some cases.

    There are lists online that provide you with numerous proxy servers and their port settings.

    Also proxies from the Freedom Network are some of the rare proxies on the net that let you comment, send messages, post bulletins, and view all pages of peoples pages on myspace.

    Enjoy, and tell others so they can enjoy too.
