Bypassing the Internet Filters
One problem with doing this is the web filters, which I’ve set up to prevent “accidental” exposure to the naughtiness of the Internet. I’m using K9WebProtection, which is a free Windows-based filter that only filters access via the web browser. It does not filter other programs.
The problem is, I have the settings set fairly stringent. The default setting blocks access to Flickr, YouTube, Share on Ovi, and others. Things I tend to look at while I’m blogging. Whitelisting those sites is possible, but not happening. Having to type in my password every 15 minutes is just annoying.
I stumbled upon a solution this evening with some Googling. It completely and utterly bypasses K9WebProtection and could easily be done by someone without user privileges.
How did I do it? I’m not going to say. For obvious reasons. However, search the Oracle of Google and you’ll find the answer. However, at least now I can do my work without disabling the Internet filter.
