Default My school blocked P2P... any way around this?

The blocked Morpheus . No more porn... no more DIVX movies... no more MP3s. Any way to avoid this stuff?

A proxy is similar to a firewall (external) or router... your comp gives the proxy what it wants, proxy gets it, proxy sends it to you. School sees you're using a proxy, site sees you're using a proxy, only the proxy knows all.

A common configuration is to have a proxy server with VPN Hosting and a fat pipe. You (user) create a VPN (virtual private network, so even if skool sniffs your packets they cant figure out whats up) connection to the proxy. This makes a secure tunnel to the proxy thru which you can exchange data. Then you use the proxy server to do whatever.

heh, as a network admin for a school i laugh at ya kev

What we have set up is a linux box with no external access at all for the students. The only access they get is to a squid cache on the linux firewall, which makes it good since the only method after that to get outside is to use a program called http-tunnel which u can get at www.http-tunnel.com

The one big downside to http tunnel is that if you use the free service, you get limited to about 1.5k a second thruput, and if u pay the bit for the uncapped service u only get about 12k a second

So there may be little you can do about things Kevin, depending on how they have modified the firewall, VPN might not be an option.

he could
but it would take a hell of a lot when the machine is basically in lock down
u can only access it via ssh from certain ip's, and yes i know that doesnt really mean squat, it stops most but the completely determined
