Getting around blockage.

How can i get around a blocker that blocks my connection the the chat? I’m afraid i won’t be able to give you any other info on how the blocker works, other than it’s name is “WEBSENSE” (if anyone knows anything about that specific program), because i have not been able to find any information on it. I always get a “Connection refused” from the JavaChat, and MIRC cannot run live off of a CD for some crazy reason. Sometimes i can get in, but as soon as i am connected and it says “Looking up your hostname”, i am disconnected. The only idea that i had was a public proxy, but i really don’t know how they work. I have 3 periods in a row that i have study hall and i’d like to use them for something other than sleeping.

I’ve tried some tunneling stuff, but it needs to be installed and i always get in trouble once the school finds it, so anything that i use to get into the Chat has to be run from a disk, or CD, or just a temp file so it never touches the hard disk.

I know i have posted about this before, i just thought i would bring it up again in case anyone had any new ideas or suggestions. The public proxy was the only idea i had.


This’ll run off a floppy disk.

Having an IRC client is a start at least (get the free version).

I still get an error =(

[09:27] *** Looking up
[09:27] Trying to connect to port 6667 …
[09:27] *** Couldnt connect: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

I got around websense, but unless you’re good with computers ::cough::or hacking::cough::, it wouldn’t really work.

Proxy server should work, but I don’t know any of the top of my head, sowwy. ;_;
