Thread: Will changing proxy settings help?

  1. #1
    I live in a media controlled country, so i can't get on sites like BBC/porn. A colleague used to get on all these sites with no trouble here. He told me something about changing proxy settings, but i don't know what they are, how to change them, or what to change them to. Any ideas?

    Yes, it will. You can find proxies online, just search on Google or something. is a nice site.

    Then just go to the connection settings in your browser and enter the ip/port of the proxy you want to use.

    A proxy allows you go through another server so that your IP address is masked. If you are using Firefox, you can set this up under Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Network.

    Instead of using public proxies, I would suggest getting a free shell at You'll be able to use it as a proxy, and it's all yours.
