Guess what happened today (03-15-2001), the N2H2 company, makers of the Bess
filtering proxy software used in schools finally caught up with Everything2
. For as long as i can remember everything.blockstackers.com has been blocked, now they appear to have realized that it doesn't exist anymore.
Why did they block
us? We talk about sex
, and how to bypass bess
We sell t-shirt
s which talk about drugs. We swear. We vote. We don't censor
We are also smart. We are the geeks
and the scholars
of the world. I write this today from my machine at school. http://127.0.0.1:81/index.pl?node_id=365128
is how i do it, and how you too can do it. SSHd comes standard with a not-as-well-as-it-should-be known feature called port forwarding.
How it works:
- Setup a port forward from port 81 local, to www.everything2.com, port 80.
- Login, authenticate, get a shell.
- Now in netscape or IE, configure it to not use the proxy for addresses starting with.... 127.0.0.1
- connect to http://127.0.0.1:81/
If it doesn't work quite right, click the E2 logo, and it should.
In SecureCRT, go into the advanced options next to the hostname, and click on port forwarding, hit new, enter the data, hit save, (re)connect
