Most of the social networking websites are blocked because of their popularity. Social websites such as Facebook,Myspace,Orkut,twitter and other famous websites like youtube are blocked.
Fortiguard web filter is installed at my place so I will be talking about that. Fortiguard is very effective and it blocks all these under the category of personal websites but it can be bypassed. Bypassing is the last method to access or enable all these social and other websites.
Lets talk about Internet connection. How your school,university or office provides it to you? Is it wireless or you use it in the lab or on the office computer. If its wireless then continue reading and if you are using it in the school in a lab then you must read my first hub about Bypassing fortiguard web filtering service.
Wireless Connection or Administrative rights
Wireless connection is one of the best way to provide internet at universities. This also gives us a chance to bypass the firewall installed on the network. Reason is simple. We will be having Administrative rights on our computer. So it helps us to install any proxy software to bypass. This is not the case if do it in the university internet lab or at such places. Software installing might be disabled for a particular user.
Here are 3 best softwares to bypass all kinds of firewall. These software requires installation.
- Hotspot shield

It will connect you through it own server by making the connection to act as virtual private connection between you and remote website. Once it connects successfully,you can surf the web easily.
Your-freedom is also very easy to use however it requires an account on its website. The account username and password will be asked during installation. Once you set up it connects you through one of its servers. Once connected you can browse the web easily.

Packetix VPN client manager is also very easy to use. It also creates a private virtual connection. Packetix VPN manager is a good one. Download the client version only.
