    Talking Anti security tip: Avoid filters imposed by sys admin

    We're at your computer's public library and we have just finished typing the Internet address of a blog in the browser toolbar. While we wait for the loading, it is a thin web page that informs us of the fact that you can not open the requested site, for suspected or dangerous. How can it be? Blog are published only harmless cookies recipes. In fact, the computer has been configured filters that limit navigation on the Internet...

    Some of these are based on lists of sites deemed unreliable, others are trying to deduce the nature of their address. In this way, however, could also be filtered sites of undoubted reliability, thereby preventing access to information that we are looking for. Unless you use a little trick, taking advantage of Google Translate (almost never filtered) to pretend to want to translate the Web page you are looking for and succeed, so, to access its content

    1. Google provides all of the free service Google Translate, which allows you to translate a text or an entire site from one language to another. So we can go on a U.S. site, even if we know only Italian. To use them, we start our favorite browser and go to google-translate

    2. To open a blocked website, type its address in the text Translate web page drop down list, select an item instead of the side where the first language is that of the web site to visit. For example, if we want to visit an Italian site, choose Italian / English.
    Click on Translate to confirm....

    3. This will open a Web page with an address very long. We must shift our attention to the final part, ie the string langpair= it%7Cen. Replace the text en with it and press Enter to confirm and reload the new Web page. You should now see the site first blocked by the firewall


    Obviously you need to change the suffixes in relation to language installed on your operating system or the language in which you want to read the pages

    second method

    Google provides access to Internet sites blocked because it stores a copy of all the Web pages that can be found by doing a simple search. If the home page of a site is stored on Google servers, you can do!

    1
    go on google, type in the search field the address of the website we want to see the copy stored by Google, by preceding the command cache and press the Google Search button. For instance, if we want to access the website ww.youtube.123, write the string

    2. If the Web page is stored by Google, you will receive a frame at the top that says "This is the cached copy. ..." The only drawback is that all multimedia elements on the page such as images, video and content are not updated in real time.

    another way, using the search engine Google Mobile: Google Mobile Search. go to ww.google/xhtml, type the website address into the search box and click the Search button
    In the new Web page that opens, simply select the first result to access the website blocked. Will be loaded a page optimized for browsing from a mobile phone and then adapted to the size of its display, but fully functional and updated in real time.

    I do not condone trying to bypass filtering or other security measures provided at the public library. Save your surfing to those sites for when you are at home.

    I agree with you Corrine...
    In any case, the example of the public library was simply an introductory statement, a simple example, if you wish to enter the case in which I stated the need to find a recipe from an innocuous blog of recipes and an alternative way to avoid Mama call to inquire about it ..


    To stay on topic, I hope that Google Translate has done a great job in translating these exact words ...


    if a picture is worth a hundred words ........ let me say this:

    As ususal we will follow Corrine's advice, because we'd be a fool not to do so, but I think our friend was as he said in his reply using that as an example.

    It is a lovely rose, zen67, and I thank you. Translations can indeed add to confusion. I am extremely familiar with language barriers, since my husband and his family are from Ukraine.

    I understood that the public library was an example, but I seriously doubt that a recipe from an innocuous blog of recipes would be blocked by a library or school, etc. Thus, I guess I do not understand what the point is other than an attempt to bypass legitimate filters.
