    Here's how:

    simply ping the domain of the site you want to goto then type in http://ipaddress into the url bar and hit enter. You'll now have complete access to a previously blocked website.:D Enjoy!

    What's a domain? A domain for example is: techguy.org, download.com, google.com, johnscompany.net, etc

    Well, not if they're blocked by IP instead of URL. :D

    Lol, true.:) But they usually aren't. I've tested this method on all Bess Firewalls and Norton Web Filters I've encountered and it's always worked. It's like they purposely programmed a back door.:eek::D

    However, I have encourntered a camp that had Bess and disabled and means of ping and whois in the command prompt so I had to use a website that had a web based ping service that was free.:(
