    All the proxies you try should be banned by your school.

    And yes, computer admin can track where you go.

    You really should be careful using a proxy at school if you find one that works. (unlikely though). Is it worth risking getting into trouble?

    1. School computer admin take security seriously, they have to, it’s a main part of their job.

    2. Proxies posted here normally contain spyware/malware and viruses, they also track what you type, so they can get access to your mail accounts etc to send spam from them. Do you think people set these proxies sites up for free? They are getting something out of you using them and it’s 99% criminal.

    3. Because of the danger from using a proxy, computer admin block them well, although it’s always a cat and mouse game. So it’s unlikely you will even get through on one for long anyway.

    4. If you do use one and the computer system gets infected with a virus, you will be in a lot of trouble, losing computer rights and possible suspension.

    So please consider this a friendly warning. Is it really worth it? Can’t you just wait to use myspace etc at home or in a public library?

    Proxy server is a server which provides you internet usage from their own server, and providing this service needs a lot of bandwidth, which comes costly.
    So, why would any body give it to you for free, until and unless there is something for them to gain.

    There are two types of proxy servers:
    1–Paid ones–they provide secured connections and have many ways to provide secured usage of internet and security of user data. Most companies use this.
    2– Free ones– they are host for spying, malware, viruses, tracking, phishing( stealing ur private information), hacking and all others. They also can allow others to take complete control of your system for all unauthorized activity.

    But they do provide you all the facililities of internet usage.
    So you may view media on proxy. No problem in that

    In short, do not use proxies in schools, companies and other sensitive places, and you can use them in public spots ( cyber cafes) and on your own system ( with some precautions).

    Currently i use also try from proxies.They have both CGI and PHP proxies in them.
    Very Reputable,SSL enabled, does provide new domains by just sending a mail to

    I have used many proxy sites over the years be it PHP CGI glype watever,
    Nowadays none seem to bypass the ever strong filters{ websense, K9 , bess},
    some things one should observe when looking for a proxy site:

    -Shouldn’t be a .info { filters by default block them coz most are proxy sites}
    -Shouldnt contain the words proxy or others like myspace,orkut,bebo in it. { they keyword filter those}
    -On the safe side should be a SSL encrypted ones {https sites filter find them difficult to scan}
    -Should be a reputable provider and provide fresh domains update {So that proxy owners dont steal our information,
    face the fact domains will get blocked eventually, so its necessary to provide new ones.}
    -I would recommend CGI proxy , even if they are time consuming they give the desired results.

    Happy Browsing , Hope I was of some help

    Hey, is a website unblocker which allows you to surf freely and have private surfing.

    You can also join which is a Yahoo group which sends 10 new proxies to your inbox each day.

    Don’t forget to tell your friends.
