well recently we started working with laptops at school but the internet here is full of restricted sites some of the restrictions are acceptable like facebooklike sites or porn sites but why did they blocked youtube or downloading
well i already tried changing the "http://" to "https://" worked with some cases and i tried proxy surfing wich again worked in some cases too
but what if i want messenger(blocked as well) or to actually download something(yeah yeah i can download at home but i cant use anything that enters the internet at school exept browsers ofcourse)

The school is trying to tell you something. You're there to study, not to watch YouTube or porn or update your Facebook page.
It's good to get used to this as you'll find your employers feel exactly the same way.:rolleyes:

Messenger is a known source of problems like viruses, as well as a time waster.
There are many alternatives to messenger.

1.all my friends and i have messenger i really wouldnt like to quit useing it now
2.i didnt really asked about the efficiency of messenger so i guess that stuff like "messenger is a waste of time" is really not a nessesary comment
3.even though i like messenger i am willing to try other programs like icq/skype/etc.
4.the problem is that any program that tries to connect to the internet is being blocked(it wont allow it to connect)

it tells me that "the syntax of command is incorrect"
maybe this "tracet" is incorrect?

Well, maybe if you spent time learning how to spell, punctuate and use capital letters you'd be better served than trying to figure out ways around your school's IT policies, which will only lead you into problems later.
Anyway, a mod will find this thread soon and close it as TSG doesn't allow helping people circumvent IT policies:
"Other Illegal Activities - As you might expect, we don't want anything illegal going on here. Users cannot post hacks, cracks, pirated software, or anything of the like. Furthermore, we do not allow instructions on how to complete illegal activities, such as pirating. Please don't ask for advice on using illegal software, as it will be removed. "

oyogiboy,

I've deleted your post as we do not assist circumventing restrictions put in place by schools or employers. I suggest you read the forum rules before posting again.
