    Introduction



    Welcome to the new generation of Search Engines. In this article, I wouldn't concentrate much about search engines. This article borned because of my office needs. In my office, I wasn't able to access all the sites. only few sites were accessible including some "tech support forums", "Microsoft" etc. etc. In this case, most of us try to use the proxy websites. In this article, I will discuss few ways with which your office people would block your internet access and A NEW & Fresh way which will get you the access back.

    Ways with which your company's IT dept. may block your internet connection



    1. Keyword tracking [which happens in my office]
    2. Access Allow Softwares [most of the companies]
    3. Manual Blocking [happens in small companies]
    Note:- There might be otherways but these are the widely used ways.

    1. Keyword Tracking:

    In this method, there is no specific software which blocks the website. Whenever you open up a website, its "index" is crawled in this method. Depending on the text of the website, it will be categorized on the server. Few categories will be allowed by your IT dept. like "computers & internet" which are necessary in any comapny. Most of the categories will be blocked like "person & dating" "adult & sexuality".

    Even "iframe" are crawled in this method. So thats the reason proxies wouldn't work because, in proxy site first of all it will have words on it like proxy, access internet and all... so the website would be blocked under "proxies & translators" category. Even if you find a proxy website, which opens in your office, that wouldn;t work. Because the moment, you open "orkut.com" in that proxy site, on the next page the part which is supposed to open up orkut.com will say "blocked under category : personal & dating". So even working proxy wouldn't help you.
    This concept is quite confusing to new people. But this is the strongest defense. In this type, you cant even use

    2. Access Allow Softwares:

    Most of you all know about it. Software blocking specific groups of websites. You can easily bypass it with SSH or some proxy sites. Even you can edit registry keys and gget your internet to work. So there nothing much to write about it.

    3.Manual Blocking

    This mainly happens in small companies and very easy to bypass. If you are little more then average in computers then you can edit the account permissions or remove the blocked sites from the list and get access.

    The New Generation of Proxy

    So, coming right at the point, Heres what helped me to bypass my company's keyword tracking type blockage. This is a new search engine, which lets you surf anonymously. As you know, most of the companies will allow Search Engines, so most likely you will have access to it. And if you do, then consider your work done.

    Yauba.com ---- Is the URL of the search engine.

    Steps to follow to view bocked sites:

    1. Goto yauba.com
    2. In search field type "anything" you want, replace "all places" with "internet sites"
    3. Hit "magnifying glass" to search
    4. On the result page you will see 2 options, [a] Go directly to that website, Goto it Anonimously!
      [*]Click on "Visit Anonymously (Slower)
      [*]You should be done!


    Advantages:
    1. It encodes the URLs of the websites you serach. So better bypass.
    2. Works at almost all the palces, offices, school.
    3. New engine, so i bet most of the IT dept. wouldn't know about it
    Disadvantages:
    1. Makes surfing slower
    2. Doesn't allow cookies. :surprised
    3. Doesn't allow java scripts. :disappoin
    Off topic:

    Shabbir, you should remember me asking you lot of times that where do u host G4E, because i used to think that , my IT dept. works on the IP address of the websites. If it is dedicated IP then it will open, if its shared then it wont. Even I created few threads about it. Slowly i realised that it tracks the keyword. Luckily, at the same time this yauba got released. If you notice all other proxies encode the URLs as well, but yauba has got advanced encoding so even though the iframes are crawled it still works! ;)

    There you go... visit the following site:
    Code:
    http://www.opera.com/mini/demo/
    You will see a small phone. Click on the URL BAR of that phone and type the name of the website you want to visit. That should work for you. Let me know what happens :D
