I have discussed many ways like using proxy sites, Translating tools like Google translator , URL redirection techniques and cached pages to open blocked sites at school and office here
If those tricks can not fool your firewall here is one for you. Usually firewalls at colleges and offices check the URL for restricted key words and domain names, if they find any such words in the URL you are trying to open then they prevent you access to that page.So now we are going to trick the firewall by accessing the site using the IP address of the server on which the site is hosted, to find the IP address of the site you can use this site
In the above page type the website you want to access in host name and it will give you the IP address of the site, fire this IP in your browser and your firewall is fooled.
Here is a quick list of server addresses of popular websites
YouTube.Com –> http://188.8.131.52/
Advantage of this method:
- The main advantage of this method is, you need not compromise on speed as you will be connecting directly to the site.
Limitations of this method:
- Doesnt work if your firewall blocked the IP address of the site.
- Doesnt work if the site uses absolute URLs rather than relative (MySpace.Com uses absolute URLs so you will not be able to go beyond the first page with this method.
- If the site is on a shared server (i.e., Many sites hosted on the same server ) this trick will not work.
