It depends on the system, some systems do not recognize uni code
requests for websites thereby not blocking them. You can use a web based
proxy, although if you make a rule to block those then they cannot get
to them. Also if I set up a proxy on my box at home that I could get to
I could proxy my traffic through my home box and get out that way. Also
it depends on how your web filter is configured, transparent proxing or
as a proxy server itself. There are some host based applications that
will encrypt data being sent out to the network that would allow you to
bypass as well. Hope this helps

Subject: By passing surf control

Hello Group,

Does anyone have any information on how to by pass a web content filter?
We use Surf Control to monitor and filter web content. However, I have
one of my users who was able to by pass this. We tried using a proxy to
by pass just for testing purposes but it did not work. I am still trying
to figure out what other method he used to do so. If anyone has any
information , it will be greatly appreciated.
