How to bypass webpages through Firewall using Proxies!

Having trouble viewing your favorite website or posting on a forum
at school when you get a page like this?

Here’s how to bypass it.

Firstly, go to this website – Proxy Server Website.  Choose a server that is near you.  Look in the host:port column, and copy (highlight and press Ctrl+C) one of the servers in that column.  Then use the following steps.

In Firefox

Go to the Tools menu, and click on Options.  Click on the Advanced section (the one with the Gear), and then go to the Network tab.  Under Connection, click on Settings, and in the new window that comes up, click on the Manual Proxy Configuration radio button.

Paste (Ctrl+V) the proxy server address you copied earlier into the “HTTP Proxy” box (or you can just type the one I used).  Also, as you can see in the picture above, you should check the “Use this proxy server for all protocols” box.  Once you’ve pasted it, the last 4 numbers (called the Port Number) you need to copy and then paste into the “Port” box, and when you are done that, delete the colon that is left so it should look like this:

All set?  Great!  Hit OK and keep on browsing!

Internet Explorer

Go to the Start Menu, then click on Control Panel (on older computers it may be in the settings menu), and then set it to classic view and click on Internet Options (you can also do this inside MSIE by going to the Tools menu and clicking on Internet Options).

In Internet Options, click on the Connections tab.  Then, click on Lan Settings (a button near the bottom).  In the dialog box, check “Use a Proxy Server for your LAN”.  Check “Bypass Proxy Server for Local Addresses”. As described in Firefox above, paste the address of the Proxy Server that you copied earlier into the box.  Then copy the last four numbers into the port box to the right of it.

It should look like this when you’re done:

    at my school every website that’s not boring or in anyway entertaining is blocked, even some math sites that have games on them are blocked, so hopefully this works for me :S
