Break Fortiguard web filter
- If your school has blocked websites that you want to surf then you can use Web page translator to change the web page from one language to another. You can use two web page translator which are the best.
- http://www.babelfish.yahoo.com – This is the best. Just go and type in the address and change the language selection to anything like spanish to english, or german to english. Now as the web page is already in the English, the translation will have no effect on web page and it will open the web page for you in english and you can browse it from there.
- You can also use Google Web page translator.
- Use of small Software – Here I am enlisting some software which are popular for bypassing and unblocking firewalls.
- Freegate – Freegate is a small software however it has certain limits according to the country like it will not open all websites in certain countries. It opens only few selected websites such as facebook, youtube etc.
- Ultrasurf – Ultrasurf has many versions. You can download any one of them. Once it connects to the server, it works very well.
- Puff the magic dragon – This software is very good for watching youtube videos as I observed that the buffering is very good using this software.
- Hot spot shield – It creates a VPN connection with its server then you can enjoy the whole internet behind the VPN server of the Anchorfree.
- Your – Freedom – This is another good software. However you need an account for the software to run. You can do so by going to the website and making a free account. Once you are done then you can run the software. It will search for all the servers and connects you to the best possible server.
for mobile users: use opera mini browser.
