You probably know where this is going.

The computer admin(s) at my high school got a little trigger-happy with the MECguard system on our network. Now, ANYTHING that's even vaguely un-educational is blocked. I'm getting sick of seeing that damn "You can't go there." banner every time I try to play a game, watch stuff on YouTube or just do random {censored} to kill time.

So that leads to this: Can I somehow hack past MECguard? This could be completely crazy, as the website seems to convey that it's a pretty secure system. But does it have weaknesses?

And don't tell me to use proxies. I had to go through three and a half pages of Google results for "proxy" in order to find one that wasn't blocked. And it's horrible, too.

On another note, how is it possible that they locked out EVERYTHING in System Preferences? All but two of the prefpanes (Dock and something else insignificant) are grayed out and unclickable. I can't seem to replicate that on my own Mac.

just install a circumventor on your computer at home and access from school. Google Peacefire.

It might be easy to hack it if it were on the local computer but usually stuff lioke that is on the server.

The best method would be to set up a squid server at home and then use that as a proxy server at school. WHich would make all traffic go through your home computer and not the server's filter.

If you cant access tor or privax or anything this would be the best method for sure, but itd be pritty easy to catch you.

Your-freedom
With this u cant access the torrent !
It unless ofcorse u will not pay money for it......

I have the same problem as ErBiC does. The moderator has blocked all most everything on the nett
and now only place i can go is to google and
official site.

Proxy is good but he can figure them buy the week out and add new ones to the block list....

well you could hack and nuke the server or just hack and disable it, but if you do hte internet may go down afterwards.

yeah thats what i did on my server until all these little myspace addicts somehow got my site and within a few days, it was blocked and i got a chat with the network admin.

phproxy is much faster than cgi proxy though if you were thinking about doin it. Plus phproxy encodes the site so they cant see what site you are going too.

Privax works, I guess they haven't gotten to it yet.

PHProxy is blocked. :whistle:

CGIProxy has urlencoding options too, you just have to know how to enable it.
In my experience CGIProxy has been faster but maybe that's just me.
Also CGIProxy 2.1beta10 has *limited* support for Javascript.
