    So my school blocks most websites. Yeah, to help us concentrate more by not allowing us to go onto Facebook/Myspace/etc. But there are tutorials, and other things that my Web Design teacher wants to show us on Youtube and other sites that are blocked but she can't. So I originally had Glype on a free web hosting website but it didn't work out so well. Youtube videos wouldn't load, and and bunch of other problems.

    Basically does anyone know of a good proxy script, and or free web hosting service? The web host I used doesn't allow proxies unless I pay, so the sites eventually get taken down. Thanks.

    Pretty much all of the free hosts that allow server-side scripting block cURL access and junk so people don't run proxies on their hardware.
    Your best bet would be to use an actual proxy server, not just a quick site.

    Generally you'll google for proxy servers and get the IP and port for one, then go into your browser's network settings and put that info in the proxy section. Or you can do it for your connection info in Windows, then every prorgram should go through the proxy automatically (unless you have them specifically set to ignore the system proxy).

    I'll see about that Rydian. The computers are pretty locked down. No Control Panel access, or anything. I can't even change the desktop background.

    PHProxy work with Youtube? So far all the proxies I've used haven't been able to get Youtube to work.

    UltraSurf. Hm. I will see it if it'll run. I suppose I could bring it on a USB flash drive.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Seeing as this is supposedly for education purposes, wouldn't your teacher/lecturer be able to request an exception so that he/she is able to display what this material?

    She might be able to, but I doubt they will. Youtube, along with other sites weren't recently blocked which makes me wonder if in the time she has been a teacher there if she has asked to have an exception made in the proxy blacklist. Since they are still blocked, I'd say the answer is no but I'll ask her about it.

    You should be able to access the browser's settings to input the proxy info.

    I'm using CCproxy for my LAN purpose, but it works on WAN too (you launch it and host it on your own computer, choose ports, etc., it doesn't need a web host but require that your computer stay online when you need to use it)

    I'm also using httport to tunnel ports to another one and act as proxy on your computer too. This program might be a little complicate to understand, but there are tutorial on the net. OpenSSL was buggy last time I used it this program, but it was years ago, it's maybe more stable and working fine now.

    By "using" I mean "I tested them, and it works fine", but I never had to bypass a proxy so I don't know how useful they can be.


    Hosting it on your computer has the advantage that your IP is certainly not blocked as it's in a user's range and not a specific website. if your IP is dynamic, the administrator could block it and you get a new one the next day. But the administrator could block the full range from your provider.
    Your IP may be blocked by websites blocking services for your country (video on demand services for example) so your own proxy can't be used for such website, only for local use.

    I seem to remember watching YouTube videos were youtube was blocked before, but right now I'm trying it and it doesn't seem to work. Unticking the box to disable scripts made it look more likely to work, but it still came up with an error when I actually tried to play a video.
