Hi everyone,

Does anyone have any ideas as to how the school technicians have blocked proxy software from our school network? I used to use a program called UltraSurf to tunnel through our web filter software, but somehow the technicians have disabled it. I am presuming that they have blocked the port that it uses, but I do nto know enough about Windows Firewall, Security Policies and general networking to think of a way I might be able to unblock this.

Is it possible to block ports on client machines by changing settings solely on the server?

Could they have blocked the port on my machine?

And most importantly: is there any way of "tricking" the server into thinking that UltraSurf is legitimate traffic or removing the policy blocking the port on my machine?

Thanks,
Richard

The school could just be blocking access for all computers to any of the proxy servers used by UltraSurf and other proxy programs at the school's router or firewall.

I do not believe TSG rules permit giving assistance in tricking, hacking or in any way circumventing web filters run by you school's administration.

We won't assist in bypassing legal restrictions on company and school networks. I suspect the school wants their network used for school activities, which is why they've blocked this.
