How can I bypass my college’s Trend Micro firewall?

    Move your computer outside the firewall.

    Before this, try explaining to the college's network admins that you need unfettered access to the internet because (insert good reason here). Keep in mind they are providing service to X students, and may not be able to accommodate your request.

    If you want what you want, get it yourself (probably the most valuable advice you will get while in school).

    Try this Free VPN tunnel:

    It disconnects every 7 minutes, all you need is to re-establish the connection

    Hello, if you value your education, don't.

    Since I have no qualms about avoiding firewalls and internet tracking (DIE SOPA), I'll answer this.

    You can use software like Tor:, Tunnelbear:, or OpenDNS:

    There you go!
    Please, however, use this software caution and bear in mind the consequences, as Bruce stated.

      OpenDNS may not get you around a firewall. Since it still uses the standard DNS protocol, it may be blocked outbound at the perimeter. I have set up corporate networks in this manner where only their designated DNS servers can send DNS requests out of the network. All other machines on the network MUST communicate with corporate's internal DNS servers. Your campus network may utilize a similar configuration. Even if this is not the case, the DNS servers you are normally using may not be what is blocking your access to other sites (and really shouldn't be).

    Use a proxy or software like tor or ultrasurf or hotspot shield. I would like to advise you to use at your own risk. view your college's internet usage rights and make sure that you aren't violating any rules. Some schools even go as far as blocking these programs from running on their network.

      I love hotspot shield. I found it so i could watch stuff on Hulu while traveling in Asia.

    I'm not going to tell you how to do this, but to ask a question instead. What will happen to your network access at the college when they find out that you have bypassed their security measures? At some places, it will lead to termination of your ability to access the network at all. In others, it can lead to expulsion. Are you ready for the consequences?
