    Ok apparently that's what it's called. You see, my friends parents put some kinda firewall on his laptop and I told him I could probably help him get around it. I was a bit in over my head though and I don't know what program to give him...does anyone have any suggestions? If I have to pay for it that's fine...need some help fast though, thanks.

    Try Ultrasurf.
    I've been able to use it at school to bypass their system easily.

    Alright, I just tried it myself, I just opened it, and double clicked it, it then brought up a page using my browser to ultrareach.com or something and had a lock icon in the bottom right hand corner. So would that bring him to anywhere he couldn't get before?

    Interesting fact: The average 8 year old (of this current generation) knows how to bypass parental locks on their computer to access restricted sites. The average 10 year old knows how to bypass school locks to the same effect.

    It's estimated that around 70% of all 12 year olds have already been exposed to porn (usually from their own adventures in the internet), although this much is hard to verify since many 12 year olds have worked out how to erase their browser history.

    In any case, most level 3 proxies will probably be able to bypass general parental filters (since a firewall is overkill). IP proxies are set in internet settings so I won't bother explaining them, but web proxies are simple websites that you can type in a URL and it'll search and display the site for you. Since you're not directly going to the site yourself, most parental filters will not stop it. Only the most intrusive filters will catch this (or ones set to detect web proxies).

    In every high school I've ever visited, I've always had no trouble finding kids who knew what websites they could use to bypass school filters. I also used to be the one to tell the teachers about them too (since I did a better job of administrating the school networks than the teachers did). Filters are there for a reason - to keep kids away from porn, illegal games/music/films/porn/virus downloads, and to stop kids wasting their time and school bandwidth and my time clearing viruses. Seriously, there were around 300 new viruses discovered every week!

    Yes it should, but make sure to hide the lock icon my moving it [​IMG]

    If that dosent work just use this proxy:
    www.redgarbage.com

    trust me it works, i use it at school soo many times..

    heh, this brings back funny memories of browsing the internet, bypassing the school filters by connecting to my home computer by a web based VNC client. Nothing they could do to block that since my IP was dynamic.

    No, at the time I was a student myself in my second year of High School. Even now I'm just finishing University. I just took it upon me to do the job that no adult (at the school) could do properly - maintain the damn computers!

    With over 200 computers across the school, in every one that I looked at (through hacking into the school network to see past the invisible C drive, and get access to every student account but that's another story), I always found a TON of porn, illegally downloaded games/media, and more viruses than you can shake a pretty looking prostitute at. And WinMX, Kazaa, eDonkey, and a few other P2P programs that were strictly forbidden thus used schoolwide. Teachers couldn't keep up, and I was bored, so I just did the right thing -prt scr, ctrl + a, shift + del, enter. Then send the screeny and a lil report to the techies with a note saying "this is the 20th time today - do your job properly!".

    Now, if it weren't for the fact that in half the IT related lessons I had, I had to contend with viruses and malware leaching the limited resources of the computers to the point of BSoDs and general crashes, I wouldn't have bothered. But it really was annoying and lessons weren't getting far in that state so, being somewhat educated in how to keep a computer network running effeciently, I took it upon myself to fix the situation for the benefit of... well, the kids in school that actually went to learn, and not jerk off to porn.

    As for proxies, I like them, so aside from actually telling people where to find them (google is your best friend after all), I always explain them to people willing to find/try them. Have you ever tried to do like the James Bond films or that Hacker film, and just set up a string of proxies and see if you can track a packet passing through them? It's fun seeing how many different proxy networks and systems you can set up before the packet itself either gets corrupted or lost.

    which reminds me, one fool proof way would be to download the tor bundle from http://www.torproject.org , if anything can bypass this silly filter, tor can. It can be a little slow though, but that is a side effect of bouncing your traffic all over the internet.

    Well, in my School District, the head IT guy is pretty clever (even if it is overkill) but he blocks a huge amount of proxies that don't contain the word proxy, blogs the word proxy from the URL bar, and a bunch of other crap (VPN is no-go as are a few other services). I'd like to see you bypass that.

    I would say sounds like a challenge juggernaut911 but I doubt it is.

    re: malware. A static system that does not run at least a locked down user mode?

    Anyhow two options:

    "on his laptop"- liveCD, safe mode and disable, might not even need safe mode.
    A more hardware level sort of thing can be a tad more difficult to work around if it is not an inclusive firewall- change computer name, change mac address and get on with things.
    This leads to full on tunnelling methods of which there are many- ssh, dns, ICMP right through to regular VPN. Most are not as much firewalls but paid for barriers (hotels are usually easier than that mind). Most work in same way though just with a different daemon and scripts for it:

    When you're using a proxy, the proxy itself (which is somebody else's computer on the internet) can see every thing you do online. It all passes through their computer. Everything you send out and everything you get back. As said by FAST, use a livecd. I recommend Knoppix.

    I think tor has a method to stop that, but really who cares about some kids pr0n.

    That's the first I've heard of that...
    Though I admit I have no experience with tor.

    My school had a glitch in c DRIVE they were stupid that you could run off programs if you copied them to the c drive.
    But I guess some fucktard snitched and now it's blocked [​IMG].
    I tried a live cd. but all websites are blocked like a server side block [​IMG]

    try my mirrorrrr
    http://rantoligy.appspot.com

    and if you wanna tunnel, try ssh tunneling

    as for bullshit people watching you, yeah go with a liveCD.

    Justin121994: not server side, they transparently SOCKS proxy all your traffic through a filter which blocks stuff using a variety of techniques including DNS redirection, traffic shaping and others.

    Rydian: tor isn't exactly the best technique for anything. other than anonymity

    Also, if you're not too cheap to buy some webspace and/or a domain, load up Glype.
    It's handy against proxies like Bluereef which use dynamic web filtering systems instead of the usual blacklist checks.
