How can I bypass restrictions for download websites?

fatokun oretayo john September 21, 2010

There’s this stupid WiFi in my college that blocks all sorts of downloads and stuff like limewire,bittorrent,vdownloader etc. Is there any way I could get through these. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    As it said above, we must follow the rules set in the college.
    Other that for general knowledge. You must have administrator rights

    JAP uses a single static IP address for many JAP users, thereby making it impossible for the visited website or any sniffer to determine which user visited.

    first download the JAP app from the link above. Install it and make sure it’s up and running. Then all you have to do is change some of the settings in Internet Explorer or Firefox. You have to change the LAN Settings so that the Default Gateway is and the port is 4001.
    (while in internet explorer browser):
    >>Tools>>Internet Options>>Connections
    >>Click Settings (under LAN Settings)>>Proxy Server.
    While in Proxy Server Section, type:
    (In the Address area):
    (In the Port area): 4001

    For Firefox, you click on Tools, then Options, and then click on the Advanced tab. Under Connection, click on Settings.

    However, if you are at the office or at school and the only ports that are open are port 80, and 443, then JAP won’t work without a little more tweaking.
    In JAP under “Config/InfoService“, change the port from 6543 to 80
    Go to the “Config/Anonymity” page. Click on the “Fetch” button and choose the “Dresden-Dresden” cascade from the drop down menu.
    Select the “Manual Configuration” radio button and change the Anon-Port from 6544 to 443

    In that case, in JAP you need to do the following:
    Activate the checkbox under “Config/Proxy-Firewall” and enter the address of the required proxy. Some proxies require a user authorization. If this is the case, activate the appropriate checkbox and enter the User ID. (First try it without authorization and only do this step if it doesn’t work.)
    Under “Config/InfoService“, change the port number from 6543 to “80?.
    Go to the “Config/Anonymity” page. Click on the “Fetch” button and choose the “Dresden-Dresden” cascade from the drop down menu.

    Check out this previous post on How to Bypass Firewalls & Get into Blocked Websites in School or at Work with FreeProxy. This one is a bit geeky, so also read this -


    My advice is to not to do it from school and respect its laws.Anyways, a good system administrator will find ways to plug holes and also catch the guy who's trying to make new ones.

    You can use a proxy server to circumvent restrictions like this. The main problem is that you need to have an external server that will proxy your requests. There are lists of free proxy servers on Google, but they change often and you might have problems with them. The best way is to rent a VPS and proxy your connection through there, another alternative is to use Tor network but your university might also block that.
