Is there any way around the internet system?

Banned 11 replies
Found 13th Mar 2009
The University is responsible for providing an internet connection to the halls I'm in. And although its a really decent connection, I can't watch many streams on Justin tv, My p2p (mainly for the football) and download music from bit torrent.

Why is this? And is there any way around it, so I can enjoy live streams and bit torrent/limewire downloads?

Rep given to all helpers.

Thanks in advance
David

P2P ports will be blocked wont they?

Tor is basically software that "helps you defend against a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy" in order words, it helps you hide from people on the internet..not access blocked stuff..i think.

Since you're in uni, i believe they've restricted those sites..what you need is a proxy server which you can connect to and use as a portal to gain access to the blocked sites. One way is to go here and find a working proxy server..

or use google to search for more ways round this.

Yes they are. I'm absolutely gutted about it!!

It should load, it can take a while.

get the tor button ad on if you have firefox :thumbsup:

If tor doesn't work, I doubt other proxies will. To be honest, you're better off not bothering. You'll only get caught...

The only proper way is to get yourself an external server; you can normally rent one for about 10pounds a month... I'm also at uni like you and it is by far the easiest way. You tunnel all your traffic through the server, and because of this, it allows you to torrent/stream with out any restrictions at all as your IT department will only see it as normal traffic going through port 80. Also, and added benefit is, if you're a member of a private torrent tracker, an external server will have amazing upload speeds, allowing you to increase you ratio like crazy! :P

Could you advise where I could get one from? Are they easy to set up?

Thanks again.
