Ok, my school has tons of websites that are blocked by a firewall called "websense" i need to find a way to "trick it" because there is no way to disable it that i have heard of or no of. There is a way i know of on how to get past it and that is by using a "website translator" although alot of them show up very different from the normal website (no pic,s. background, etc.) so if anyone knows of a good website translator to do this or anything period on how to get past websense, POST IT!

So I assume you tried babelfish? The translator way is the easiest. But if you want try https://www.proxyweb.net or use an HTTP tunneling program.

Proxies are unbelivably slow though, your best bet would be to just go on those sites at home

^= thats not an entirely true statement. I have found Proxies that are just as fast as normal. Just look for ones in this country with low pings.

try using different ports, Ususally ports like 1080,8000,8001 are blocked by default. i have used 3128 has worked for me in the past you could try those. You could also try setting up a proxy at your house and trying that.

They use Websense at my work to block us from going to certain sites. I installed Circumventor on one of my home PC's running Apache as a webserver. Now I have a personal encrypted password-protected proxy that I can reach any website with from work smile.gif

More info on Circumventor here:

Check out http://www.thevirtualbrowser.com/ . It gets past my school's proxy and it's fast.
