Well....that wont really work because the filters on your schools servers, so you would just be going through your schools filters then the proxy then out into the internet. It wont work, ive tried :).

It depends on how they have their network set up and what kind of proxy... A web based proxy, like the one I linked to, would be his best bet.

if it uses silly webby sense use proxify.org its kinda slow though.. Or if your in for a real challenge try your best to disable web sense.

most schools have a web filtering program set up on their main server which then controls all of the traffic going in and out of the school, unless he can get past that then there is no hope. Thats the way it is in my school, im shure its the same in most high schools asumming your in highschool.

Most high schools also have horribly misconfigured proxies. ;) Unless they're content filtering for the word "proxy" then a web based proxy (like cgi-proxy) will work. A normal socks proxy has little to no chance of working though.

Yes, but most of the time a web based proxy will work.

I guess you're not understanding me.

The chances that they're filtering for the word proxy are almost nil; look at how many uses that word has, there must be tons that could be related to normal school work. They're probably running something like Websense, which filters based on content submitted by people who get paid to search the web for porn and such. They usually rely on domains an links to work, not keywords; that causes false positives and takes too much resources. Most corporations don't even do full keyword filtering; I seriously doubt a (state funded) school district is.

Once he hits that site with the cgi proxy, he uses their connection to browse whatever site he wishes. It's a very simple concept; he makes a connection on port 80 to that web server, which in turn does the same thing for the target site. There's not much for his school's proxy to filter; it's a perfectly normal, and common, http connection. It's a lot different than Goolging for proxies, or sites that normally list them.

And even if his school is filtering the keywords or filenames, he can install that proxy and change the wording around, removing all instances of "proxy" - even translate it into another language. So "CGI Proxy" becomes "web ninja" or something equally benign.

Down here in Alabama, our schools use the Bess proxy, which filters everything out based on meta-data, but it can't filter child frames from parent frames. Chillax jung, stupid people should be laughed at.

i got teh bess too, up in new jersey. i'm going to test out if i can get by it tommorow. me and my freinds years ago used to be able to get by it, but they started to get smart and block a lot of stuff that allowed you to bypass it

i just got owned. i copied the url at jung's site, the url of several google searches, and the url of a bucnh of differnt proxy servers. all are blocked by my school district (with the reason listed as MTPS blocked) meaning they set the filter themselves. i think that they have completely blocked the word proxy, form appearing in the url. however, i don't think it is blocked from appearing in the text or html

I'll remove the meta tags and fix the path later so you can try again, I'm curious if it'll work.

Edit:
Nevermind, I'm going to have to dig through the code, I'll do it later.
