But you obviously haven't rode a bike on a street. It's like shitting bricks because even on residential streets, they go twice your speed. And as shown in the gif nobody even respects bike lanes.

Thats cool. I understand. Im not those kinda people. It just angers me that I ride within the realm of the law all the time and the one time I disobey it to protect myself I get fined basically 320 dollars for trying to avoid an accident that costs thousands of dollars and lives. I also drive and dont really run into those cyclists (except those full on tour de france cyclists to take that seriously). Maybe we live in different places, but these damn cops better at least have a bicycle lane if theyre gonna fine me for riding on the side walk

I've been walking on sidewalks and driving a car long enough to know what a fucking hazard most cyclists are. If they're on the road approaching a red light, they switch over to the sidewalk to avoid it... I see shit like that at least 3 times a week so you'll exuse me for not wanting those cunts in the space made for pedestrians.

Id rather be punched in the throat than die cause those people coming off the 405 are mad as shit cause traffics. Also I was on the sidewalk for like half a block. I only went on there to make sure I can secure a safe path to get back on the tiny 18 inches of curb space Im barely allowed to be on
#6 - fragman (11/06/2014) [-]
if you have to leave the road for your own safety (which is a valid reason) you get off the fucking bike and push it until you can reenter traffic. Sidewalks are for pedestrians, not cyclist twats.

Unless the webserver you're using to display the "outside website" also acts as a proxy, it wouldn't really work since your computer would still try to request content from the original site. Take FJ as an example: When you're browsing to funnyjunk.com , your browser also sends out requests to other domains, like fjcdn.com (which is where images are stored for example). So if you were to block fjcdn.com you can still browse FJ, but won't see any images.

The big one is of course blocking portable apps. I can get around this by using a laptop with wifi or ethernet. You'd be surprised how easy it is to print a config page for a printer, get the MAC address and spoof it, and use that for ethernet. As in it takes about 30 seconds. Blocking the protocol is admittedly possible, but I find that it never happens especially due to its ability to disguise itself as HTTPS as you mentioned.

I should mention that school IT departments seem to be filled with the lowest payed, worst employees possible. I had an ethernet plug go out in a research lab, which prevented us from doing AD logins. This was out for a week and due to special software only installed in that lab, research was stalled for a week. At a research university. Believe it or not, they definitely *are* idiots.

Bottom line though I can get around it all, or at least everything in schools, if I feel like it. Then again sometimes it's just easier to use the Google "fresh proxies" group, which usually seems to work for the day that they're relevant.

Tor Browser can be installed portably. Hence no installation and no admin privileges required, though if you use your own laptop like me it's already there. As far as detecting tor traffic I haven't encountered anything that can manage to block the encrypted traffic, it's pretty damn robust. Additionally, Tor ports are often nonstandard, especially with bridges which are used in situations where standard ports and known IPs are blocked.
#133 - fragman (11/05/2014) [-]
True. But execution of protable apps can be prohibited and the way blocking it's traffic is what I just described. Of course it doesn't work if you allow outbound connections from clients directly to the internet but damn son, you'd have to be one drunk IT guy to do that in an environment like a school (which apparently is way more common than I expected).

I don't follow regarding the login question, please elaborate.

What you're doing there is the most rudimentary form of a proxy where you call one website to display another. It works, but only because the server isn't affected by the controlling mechanisms in place (i.e. K9 because it's client side and who would install it on a server). It's a quirky solution but I like it.

It seems like Tor is nearly unblockable.

To put this in perspective: I have been in many schools, using many different companies with many different filter settings. Even the most restrictive (especially over restrictive primary schools) services couldn't block Tor. That's not to say it works out of the box - occasionally I have to use a bridge but that's very easy.

Not to mention that occasionally I set up my VPS for proxying and get better speed than any residential or commercial connection.
#128 - fragman (11/05/2014) [-]
But then again, if they allow you to simply change the proxy settings in the browser to point to your VPS, you can't expect much...
#125 - fragman (11/05/2014) [-]
Uh... okay? It's kinda freaking me out how low the standards for IT infrastructure in schools seem to be.

Thing is, in a proper setup you can't really use tor if they don't want you to since you have no admin privilege required to install software (in order to run the local SOCKS service which it connects to), change TCP/IP settings, change proxy settings etc. And even if the user finds a way to bypass that: an enterprise-level solution like ProxySGis able to detect tor traffic as a bypass service which means it can be blocked using a policy.
Another solution would be blocking outgoing traffic on the ports used by tor to get the node list (9001, 5001, 8080). This forces tor to default back to using HTTP and HTTPS and since it's using encrypted communication with untrusted certificates any protocol-aware device will be able to drop that traffic.

The bypasses you mentioned are the same ones we came up with, actually

Either google translating a site or going on so-called anonymous browsing websites made it easy enough to access whatever site you wanted even though there were some issues with cookies from time to time
#84 - fragman (11/05/2014) [-]
Yeah, it's usually the simplest solution. But the google translate way can be stopped with better URL inspection, HTTPS can be stopped by using a non-transparent proxy setup and those CGI proxies (anonymous browsing websites) are usually slow as hell and can be easily blocked as well. Plus the cookie issues you mentioned and the fact that you are basically asking for a man-in-the-middle attack that way (if you use them to visit sites where you have a login).

If your institution of choice is clever and you are totally set on still breaking the rules, you can always set up a proxy at home (like janaserver), use DynDNS and access that one. This will bypass the countermeasures about 98% of the time. The other 2% can also be handled but honestly, that would be way too technical to post here (considering some people on this site ask questions like "what doees HTTPS do").

Well it's kinda both the same and entirely different. Ok that sounds stupid...
Since it's a BlueCoat product it uses the same category-based filtering system (same as if you were to use a BlueCoat proxy appliance) but the implementation is entirely different. As a client-based solution there are of course advantages and drawbacks (mostly drawbacks from a policy enforcement/security point of view) compared to the concept I explained above. But for the user it's probably pretty much the same (probably since I've never used it myself).

Doubt all schools use those kinds of systems.

At my high school, it seemed more like our IT dude either manually put the URLs with wildcards into a blocking list or he just added the IPs.

Some rather obvious gaming sites were not blocked one week, whereas the next they were ... after tons of students started using it at the start of the school year.
#78 - fragman (11/05/2014) [-]
If they have any knowledge whatsoever or a halfway competent IT provider, they use such systems. Those things still need to be configured properly though and sites can be uncategorized/miscategorized.
Manually maintaining a content filter is not only slow but also stupid. You either end up not blocking shit in which case you're better off ignoring it completely or the time your IT guy spends on maintaining it costs you about five times more than a service subscription. Add to that the fact that most systems used in schools and smaller companies (especially the ones which are handled like you described) are bypassed with insanely easy methods (use HTTPS [if the proxy is configured as transparent, only HTTP traffic is scanned], google translate the site from English to English etc.).

I used to work for a company who provided such a service among other things and we bought the category data from some university, customized them to fit our customer's needs and applied them to the simple gateways running an open source proxy software. But once again, the almighty FJ userbase seems to know better.

Thing is, in a proper setup you can't really use tor if they don't want you to since you have no admin privilege required to install software (in order to run the local SOCKS service which it connects to), change TCP/IP settings, change proxy settings etc. And even if the user finds a way to bypass that: an enterprise-level solution like ProxySGis able to detect tor traffic as a bypass service which means it can be blocked using a policy.
Another solution would be blocking outgoing traffic on the ports used by tor to get the node list (9001, 5001, 8080). This forces tor to default back to using HTTP and HTTPS and since it's using encrypted communication with untrusted certificates any protocol-aware device will be able to drop that traffic.

Tor Browser can be installed portably. Hence no installation and no admin privileges required, though if you use your own laptop like me it's already there. As far as detecting tor traffic I haven't encountered anything that can manage to block the encrypted traffic, it's pretty damn robust. Additionally, Tor ports are often nonstandard, especially with bridges which are used in situations where standard ports and known IPs are blocked.
#133 - fragman (11/05/2014) [-]
True. But execution of protable apps can be prohibited and the way blocking it's traffic is what I just described. Of course it doesn't work if you allow outbound connections from clients directly to the internet but damn son, you'd have to be one drunk IT guy to do that in an environment like a school (which apparently is way more common than I expected).
#144 - gjsmo (11/05/2014) [-]
The big one is of course blocking portable apps. I can get around this by using a laptop with wifi or ethernet. You'd be surprised how easy it is to print a config page for a printer, get the MAC address and spoof it, and use that for ethernet. As in it takes about 30 seconds. Blocking the protocol is admittedly possible, but I find that it never happens especially due to its ability to disguise itself as HTTPS as you mentioned.

I should mention that school IT departments seem to be filled with the lowest payed, worst employees possible. I had an ethernet plug go out in a research lab, which prevented us from doing AD logins. This was out for a week and due to special software only installed in that lab, research was stalled for a week. At a research university. Believe it or not, they definitely *are* idiots.

Bottom line though I can get around it all, or at least everything in schools, if I feel like it. Then again sometimes it's just easier to use the Google "fresh proxies" group, which usually seems to work for the day that they're relevant.

You can have fun or you can play league. It's not a casual friendly game and takes a lot of practice and commitment. I've played pretty consistently for about a year and I'm just now getting to the top of silver. You'll get there lil' buddy.

I've been advertising your channel skipper a lot lately, and someone suggested uploading a content for it. I did re-host it on userscripts, but if you don't mind I would like to upload a post about it. And yes, I have been making sure to give credit where it's due for you <3 It is an awesome thing.
#40 to #39 - fragman ONLINE (07/04/2014) [-]
sure, go ahead
User avatar #35 - DisgruntledTomato (10/16/2013) [-]
Just a quick reminder, I still use your channel skipper <3
#36 to #35 - fragman ONLINE (10/17/2013) [-]
woah that is still a thing?
awesome, thanks
User avatar #37 to #36 - DisgruntledTomato (10/17/2013) [-]
I don't know if others use it, but I still do. Probably going to write a UI for it as well. Pretty useful.
User avatar #33 - akkere ONLINE (06/19/2012) [-]
I decided to do an EZ setup
www.mediafire.com/?b5qdg8cez3563db

I wasn't able to finish it in time before the post was out of its 24 hour slot, but it has a readme with some instructions so you don't have to keep repeating yourself

What do you think?
User avatar #26 - venumb ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
Is it alright if I take what you have so far and edit it and repost the results as long as I mention your name? I plan on adding GUI and other features other than Skipper. The auto thumb/thumb down will probably be in there too.

Really good work on the idea :)
#27 to #26 - fragman ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
I really wouldn't recommend the thumb down feature, there is a vote limit for a certain timespan which could have negative impact on functionality and would also motivate people to post their content outside the channel.
But expanding it in general, sure.
User avatar #28 to #27 - venumb ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
I guess your right. I'll leave the thumbing out of the expanded release. I have other ideas that I'm am way more motivated on accomplishing anyway.
#21 - negrocop ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
If you want, I can make a quick step by step guide for you to post for Chrome users and how to edit the skipped channels.
#22 to #21 - fragman ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
this would be really nice. but since my 24 hour frame is almost done and this content will go back to the depths of *************** I dont think it will be necessary.
#23 to #22 - negrocop ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
Ah I truly doubt that. This was a huge step forward for FJ today, it'll be remembered for a while. And you could upload a Firefox guide and a Chrome guide for newbies in the following days. Especially probably around Thursday or Friday since a lot of Bendingtime posts will come about Saturday. There will be tons of bitchin about it. :P
#24 to #23 - fragman ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
good idea. I like it.
In this case it'd be wonderful if you could provide the chrome guide :)
#29 to #24 - negrocop ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
Rawr, this should be good.

big yay for you, thx.
I think I'll have it ready by around thursday

Sorry it took so long, I was PMing some people tryin to help them
#30 to #29 - negrocop ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
I'll have a friend try it out later with that when he gets home though
#25 to #24 - negrocop ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
I'll get to workin on it here in a few minutes :)
User avatar #12 - natedimes (06/18/2012) [-]
Which page did you fond the source code that showed the channels in an array?
User avatar #13 to #12 - natedimes (06/18/2012) [-]
find*
#14 to #13 - fragman ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
I don't quite get what you mean...
the code is fully hand-written
User avatar #15 to #14 - natedimes (06/18/2012) [-]
Oh, I thought you said that there was a way to edit the source code.
#16 to #15 - fragman ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
ah now I get it.
Depends on your browser. You might want to check out this if you're using chrome:
stackoverflow [DOT] com/questions/5258989/manually-adding-a-userscript-to-google-chrome
#17 to #16 - fragman ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
rest should be in the content description.
User avatar #18 to #17 - natedimes (06/18/2012) [-]
If you're referring to adding the channel skipper, don't worry about that it installed automatically :). I was just wondering about when you said that you could edit the source code so it only skips certain channels.
#19 to #18 - fragman ONLINE (06/18/2012) [-]
actually that's what I meant...
you'll need to find where the script is stored in order to edit it. that should be explained in the description pretty much, on the stackoverflow site you'll find the various user-datadir defaults for chrome.
then edit the file script.js in notepad++ or something like that
User avatar #20 to #19 - natedimes (06/18/2012) [-]
Ohhh ok now I get it :). Thank you, Sir.

depends on your browser. if you're using firefox with greasemonkey, you can simply create a new user script (after you've defined a default userscript editor, e.g. notepad++) and paste the source code. then edit the array defined in line 9 to be filled with all the channels you'd like skipped, like this:
var skipit = new Array("channel1", "channel2", "channel3");

#4 to #3 - fragman ONLINE (06/16/2012) [-]
this is a little ugly, but I don't know of any better way at this moment.
you'll find the script in C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\1_0\script.js
while "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" is a random string. I don't know how that's generated but if it's based on the script source code it should be "camaaaeklepkjffjiookkjabipiidofl".
In this folder there are two files, manifest.json and script.js (which is the one you can edit using any text editor and just save it)
